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.
This is an edited version of the Store dress 'Take a Bow', which sure provided a surprise when I looked at it in CAS!
Anon requested a gloveless version of this dress awhile back, and, having moved on to conversions for elders, I decided to make this a bigger project than just editing textures, namely:
  • removed the necklace overlay from all the textures;
  • removed the gloves;
  • added two new control options;
  • added a pregnant morph to the adult version;
  • converted the dress for teens and elders.

The original Store dress is not required, nor do these dresses conflict with it.

  • For teen - elder females.
  • For Formal, Makeover, Maternity. NOT enabled for Random.
  • 3 presets: 1st preset has 2 recolorable channels, 2nd and 3rd presets have 3 channels each.
  • All LODs and morphs, including maternity.
  • Custom thumbnails.

Polygon Counts:
LOD1: 4202

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.

@Hellfrozeover @attuned Thank you! <3 There's definitely a drought of nice formal clothes for teens and elders!

@candyrabbit Thank you for the kind words! I understand what you mean about Tumblr, haha. But just to clarify: this is for TS3, not TS4, and it's a clothing item that can be recolored normally in TS3's CAS (meaning this is basically the mesh and you don't need recolors like in TS4). Just wanted to mention this so you don't have issues with your game later on

Tumblr - more downloads! | CC reuploads / creator backups | TS3 CAS Conversion Catalog - for basegame, EP, SP, and Store clothing!
