This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Update: July 15, 2010 Made the arms wider again.
Update: Jun 27, 2009 Made the arms slightly less stick-like.



--------------------------------------------------

This is a new, untuckable top mesh for grandma.
I made 12 untuckable sweater recolors for it.
(t-shirt recolors available in different thread)

This is different from the Maxis nude top because there is a "tank top shape"
over the breast area, instead of a "just a bra, no shirt" shape.
Also, the UV map has been adjusted so vertically striped textures
look nice in the breast area instead of stretching oddly.



Here are the 12 colors on the updated, wider arm mesh.
Links to pants/skirts below pictures.


untucked blue jeans by me (mesh here in post #2)
ruffled edge skirt by tamo
wide jeans by Cocomama,
long blue skirt by dustfinger



beige untucked slacks by me (mesh here in post #4)
long purple skirt by dustfinger
long gray skirt by bloodypopcorn (mesh here by t2suggas)
black untucked slacks by me (mesh here in post #4)



rust untucked skirt by me and plasticbox
wide jeans in white by Cocomama,
yellow untucked slacks by me (mesh here in post #4)
sage untucked skirt by me and plasticbox

For some reason this doesn't work in my game and I've installed everything correctly.

greenbanks92 What do you mean it doesn't work? You don't see any sweaters? You see the mesh, but with bad texture? Did you put both the mesh and the recolors in your downloads folder?
My bad. For some reason, the mesh file did not get properly uploaded when I updated. Please redownload the mesh file.
