This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

I saw a beautiful outfit for sale, an aqua boatneck shirt with a black broomstick skirt, and decided to make it for my sims since that's cheaper than buying it for me. Today, I bring you my attempt at the boatneck shirt, in 16 colors. I think this style goes quite well with a large variety of skirts and pants, from casual to dressy. Perhaps it might find a place in your sim's closet.

These shirts require a MESH.


black slacks, cropped jeans, Soho skirt with tights, untucked slouchy jeans


block pattern skirt, default replacement jeans with wider knees, jeans with sandals (preg morph), Maxis black pants


rolled up jeans (preg morph), belted jean capris with sneaks, leggings with boots, zippered pocket capris


orangy sherbert skirt, black broomstick skirt, zippered pocket capris, Maxis skirt

Gorgeous shirts! Just wondering, is there a special mesh needed for them to work, or do they just snag the mesh from one of the in-game clothes?

Once again you've posted a favourite style of mine. Thank you!!

Dagi, if you check the tab where you download the file, it shows what mesh is needed. It's one of Cat's so you may already have it.

Very classy and easy to match. I love separates, and this will be one of those really great shirts that go with a lot of things and fit many different Sims. Can't wait to look at them in-game, looks like they are really well-made Thank you for sharing!

You need this mesh. The link is in the downloads tab, but I usually put a note in the main thread too. I forgot this time. Rectified now.

My Sim ladies can all use some more nice basics! Right now, way too many of them are wearing your lace shirts. They look great... but it looks like there's only one clothing store in my Sims' world with a very limited selection!

I was just thinking that what my Sim ladies needed was some really nice, basic shirts. This fills the bill to a t! And so very pretty.

These are lovely, the texturing is just fantastic! I'm a fan of that wrinkle/fold under the chest. Thank you!

Thank you. I stressed about those folds! Tried to do a good job, but did not expect this much positive response to these shirts. Very happy you like the folds and that folks have left all these nice comments. Time to lighten up and enjoy the process more. This is supposed to be my down time when baby doesn't need immediate food or snuggles, after all. Perfectionism is a disease.
