"The Winterberries" - Two New Dresses for Children

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.


These two dresses are modifications of a couple of store meshes. "Snowberry" started as a somewhat bulky sweater top, but I ripped off the sleeves and added a skirt and retextured it. "Winterberry" is an alteration of another store sweater top. I always thought that the original version fell strangely around the waist, and I rarely used it because of that. However, I'm pretty happy with how it looks as a dress/sweater combo. =)





Basic Information:
  • For female children.
  • They appear in the everyday, formalwear, and career categories. "Snowberry" is also enabled for outerwear, but neither of them are set as valid for random (meaning they won't randomly appear on townies).
  • Snowberry has three channels, the sweater dress, the undershirt, and the buttons. Winterberry has four channels, the sweater, the dress, the scarf, and the hem.
  • Frankenmeshed from various EA clothes, they both have working morphs and proper LODs.
  • Custom thumbnails for easy recognition.

Finally, if you use and enjoy the content I create, please consider taking a look at this GoFundMe campaign to help a fellow simmer improve her quality of life and regain some of her independence. Thank you.

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.

I love your clothing!!! They're so good. Children lack great, stylish clothing. I like that youre clothing creations are of good quality as well. I have question to ask you: where did you find those brown boots at? They are cute! :D

All I have to say is that I agree -- the base game clothing gets old fast
