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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Recently, I got a really cute ruffled t-shirt at H&M. I thought it would look awfully cute on my Sims, too, so I tried to recreate it. Many alpha layers later, here is the result: eight new summer outfits for your little girls that feature a ruffly t-shirt, white leggings, and flowered sandals.



I have the grey shirt, in case you were wondering.

Due to the placement and overlap of the ruffles, I had to use multiple alpha layers. Because of this, the files are a bit larger than normal (the recolours are about 250 KB each). If you have an ancient computer (like I do), you might find that the outfits look a little blurry, especially if you have more than one kid wearing them on the lot. Please keep in mind that the blurriness is coming from your computer... not from the textures themselves.

These outfits use a new mesh, which is included in the zip file. A working fat morph is included.

Polygon Counts:
ruffle top & leggings = 2476

Additional Credits:
The hairstyles are by natrobo, fanseelamb, CatOfEvilGenius, melodie9, fakepeeps7, The Sims 2 Store, and Maxis.

Very cute! Good idea about reducing the number of mesh groups.

You can run Extra TXTR Remove on these, get rid of two unnecessary TXTRs and go from 350 kb to 230 kb each. Can select all the recolors at once, so it's quick.

Thanks for that, Cat! I wondered if it was possible to remove the duplicates, but I wasn't sure. The files are quite a bit smaller now. Yay!

I don't usually dress my children up (can't wait for them to grow up. . .) but these are must-have items!

Thanks for another great outfit! Around a week ago, I took the sims 3 off the shelf, and played it. I quickly realized that my poor kids were parading in very similar looking outfits. Along with other things, this made me feel the need to go back to the sims 2.

Now on to the actual outfit. I love it; another one of those "semi-girly" sets that I adore. I know you don't take requests, but this sort of outfit, able to be used in many applications, is my favorite kind from you. I would love to see more of it.

I don't see any invisible treasure chests!

Natrobo made the hair. Search her stuff on MTS and you should find it.
