This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.


While peeking through the monthly themes suggestions thread, I saw someone mention an elders clothing theme. I really liked the idea, so I decided to use it for my next few uploads. So, this set includes two new motherly pieces for your elder females.

Sunday Tunic

The first part of my mommy themed set is a lovely tunic. The EA kimono tunic has a ridiculously boring texture on such a nice mesh, so I decided to give it a retexture. The tunic has a loose, flowing design that's perfect for Sunday gatherings. It has three channels: top/sleeves, bottom and trimming. This tunic also comes in an adult/YA version as well. The tunics can be found in everyday, formal and sleepwear.



Mom Jeans

A mother's wardrobe is not complete without her mom jeans. For some reason, EA refuses to give our elders a decent pair a jeans. They gave us a choice of skinny jeans or...lowriders (no, EA, just no...). The mom jeans will hit the sims natural waist, and have a relaxed fit for the mom on the go. They have one channel, and are found in everyday.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh! I love your retexture of the tunic! It isn't a default replacement right? If not is it alright for me to *try* and make it so (for my own use)... I've read the tutorial but never tried it so we'll see how it goes lol.

Love your elder outfits! These will make the seniors look better! Now if we could only get EA to desist from automatically giving ALL elders an osteoporosis slump.....Thank you for your great work!

Love 'em! Thank you---maybe now I'll actually play some elders (I hardly ever touch them because they seem so boring---with their wardrobes they might as well have both feet in the grave already)!

Thank you. The clothing is beautiful. It makes their tops look much better than the extremely droopy EA.

The first time I ever saw that movie, I watched it with my grandmother. She had this eerie smile on her face when she said it was a "good movie". It freaked me out. As soon as I had money, I replaced all my wire hangers with plastic ones (yeah, not pink satin-cloth hangers... I wasn't that far gone). I didn't want Joan Crawford coming out of the grave and looking in my closet. Anyway, I love the mom jeans. They're perfect. The tops are lovely. Thank you for taking the time to make these.
