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.


Kedlu brings you another exciting new 50's themed set which will come in several parts; this is the first one, a set of pin-up inspired tops for female sims. They are frankensteined from the base game bra and panties, so they tuck into any skirt or pants. The fun thing is that regular panties are covered by them, so they can look like cute little swimsuits!



makes my cherry pop: this one is by far my favourite, I spent quite a lot of time creating the cherries for the pattern (I decided not to use other people's patterns and textures, because it lacks challenge!)
devil in her heart: name inspired by a Beatles song (I am a huge Beatles nerd). Looks like something a Tim Burton character would wear, right?
ahoy, captain: simple stripes will make your red lipstick shine extra bright!
santa Maria: because sailor theme is a must for pinup girls. The little anchors took me a lot of time and nerves :D

In-game shot:



Hope you like it and look forward to the next part!

Created with ColorMagic, S4PE and Photoshop.
For more stuff visit either my MTS page or kedlu's fashion factory !

P.S.: Any blurriness in the pictures is caused by the fact that I play on a laptop. The textures themselves are clear and crisp.

They're really nice looking, but if you look at the back, they still have the bmp's of the top they're based on.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

Yes, you're right... I would appreciate any advice how to fix that.

Yes, I've just tried it in-game and unfortunately the bumpmap of the original shirt shows on the sim's skin in the front as well as the back. It's a shame, because the top itself is so cute. As far as I know at the moment, nobody has yet figured out how to extract and replace the bumpmap in TS4, but keep an eye on the Sims 4 Creation Forum for developments. Hopefully someone will crack it before long!

(There's a thread about it here at the moment: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=534125 )

So creative to add the panties to the mesh so it looks like a swim suit! Wow, just wow!

Well, as far as I know The Sims 4 has no expansion packs yet, so as long as you have the base game, you're good to go. It works also for the demo.
