A Trio of Dresses

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.
I had this idea to make a handkerchief-style dress with a layered skirt, and the only way I could see to do it was to make the skirt alpha-editable. Once I made the mesh, I realized how versatile it could be... and two more outfits were born!

The first is a fun white outfit (hey, Sims never stain their clothes!) with a short, swingy dress with a tied sash over white pantalettes.

Then I thought my Sims needed something really colourful. It won't be to everyone's taste, but I think it has a cheerful carnival feel to it. The striped bodice matches the pieced, pointed skirt. This dress comes with pink shoes.

And, finally, I wanted something a little more formal. So I made a black dress with lace trim and a sheer underlayer. This outfit has red shoes.

And there you have it: three brand-new outfits for your Sim girls. All are set as Everyday (the black dress is also set as Formal), and come with a working fat morph. Due to the nature of alpha meshes, there might be a bit of weirdness when your Sim makes extreme movements (such as crouching or hacking up a lung). Otherwise, the mesh should work fine.


Polygon Counts:
alpha dress with pantalettes = 3350

Additional Credits:
The hairstyles are by Maxis (white outfit), natrobo (rainbow outfit), and fanseelamb (black outfit).

I think they are really cute, but I think they would be so much cuter with out the legging type things on them. I think the designs are overall very adorable and I love the colors, but I think the white on white does not go so well, maybe a light pink dress with white leggings, really any other pastel would go great with the white leggings but I do not think the white on white seems a bit much. I think that all three dresses would look so cute as just dresses with no leggings.That is just my opinion, and other then that I really love them and pretty much all of your other work

Wow! The layering on the white turned out beautifully. That carnival dress will go nicely with your carnival alpha skirt. And that black dress is great for violin recitals and formal occasions (boring grown up stuff).

Too adorable! I especially love the white one, and the shoes are so cute. Ah, those lucky Sims who live in a world where white shoes actually remain white for more than thirty seconds...

The whole point of sharing my work here on MTS is so that people don't have to pay for it.

Please have a look in the help section to see if your questions about logging in can be answered. I'm not a techie; I just make Sim clothes.

You're not fooling anyone-- we all know that to make Sim clothes you HAVE to be a techie. :D
Anyways, these dresses are EAxis look-alikes as far as quality goes, and the styles are amazingly diverse. Very nice!
