Not-So-Tacky Tracksuits

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.
FreeTime gave kids the ability to really get into shape. Unfortunately, most of the workout wear (with the exception of soccer uniforms) wasn't available for the kiddies. I thought this would be a cute outfit on the younger set, so I converted the adult mesh into a child's size. Then I added some more colours... and the original three tracksuits become twelve brand-new athletic outfits for your Sim kids!



There are three colours each of four styles: black with coloured trim, white with gradient colour and a crest, plain coloured, and white with coloured trim. All are unisex and come with a working fat morph (in case your Sims start out their exercise regimes a bit chunky).

No EPs are required, and the mesh is included in the zip file. I've set these as Everyday and Athletic, so you can use them even if you don't have FreeTime.

Feel the burn!

Aww! Kids were in dire need of some more athletic wear, and these fit the bill perfectly. They are so cute on you little sims. Especially that girl in pink. Thank you!

I never liked this mesh, but it looks a helluva lot better on the kids than it does on the adults. Downloading!

I wholeheartedly agree!!! All my kiddie sims had to be in soccer or playing "faerie ballerina" before. Well no more! Thank you!

You're creating so much stuff... Are you even sleeping sometimes?^^
Those kiddie clothes would also work as everyday outfits for colder days. Well done.

Thank you so much for this! It's driven me nuts that my little Simlets have had so extremely limited (and ugly) choices for athletic wear. Not all kids want to play football/soccer or be ballerinas, ya know?

Like harlequin_eyes above, I never particularly liked this mesh for adults, but it works great for kids!

Awesome! I'm also not really a fan of this outfit for adults but it looks great on the kidlets. Thanks a lot, these really were needed!!! :D

Fantastic! Thanks muchly. Seems I'm the odd one out in actually liking these for my adult sims I'd love these extra colours for them too, do you have any plans to do them for other ages?

Who knows where thoughts come from....? They just appear.

Nope, no plans to do so. But it would be easy enough for someone else to do, since these textures are just recolours of the adult suits; nothing has been moved or stretched, so you can slap these textures on the adult mesh and they should look just fine.
