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.
A few recolours of Helga's Elegant Edem Curtains.

The original mesh only comes in the one colour and I love these so much I thought I would make a few recolours

Mesh can be found here

edejan I'm sorry I've no idea, these are only recolours, you would have to contact the creator to find out what the polycounts are. The link to her site is in my original post

Maria, I haven't recoloured anything for quite some time, I have spent the last 3 months getting the house straight after having some renovations done. Your request may be just the thing I need to get me motivated

Mesh Site Down!
Tried to download the mesh for this but the link for that site is down, any suggestions?

Are you bored with your game? Have you ever thought to yourself, "Boy it would be fun to play with others"? If so, Sim Swap is the place for you, check it out.

The whole set is available here, in the filesharing section. BPS stores the most of the Helga's production now that she's inactive and the site down.
Helga agreed, obvioulsy.

Btw, love these recolors
