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.
Hysterical Paroxysm has made default beddings to replace the ugly Maxis ones, so I decided that I needed recolors of my favorite curtains to match. I thought some of you might like them too!

Here's the link to the beddings so you can check them out:

These are recolors of Inge Jones's AutoDrapes from Simlogical. They automatically open in the morning and close in the evening and come in two heights.

These use Hysterical Paroxysm's blanket textures of course (so they match). All twenty-two of the bedding matches are done for both sizes and the file names match the colors named in HP's bedding files so you can easily eliminate those you don't want! Files have been Compressorized to save space.

Additional Credits:
Hysterical Paroxysm for making my Sim world a prettier place by generously sharing her work and allowing her textures to be used!

What a wonderful idea! These are my favorite curtains as well and HP's beddings are nice and simple, such a perfect fit together. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the recolours, the Autodrapes are so much more useful now :]
However I was also wondering if it's just in my game that the recolours don't show up in game if they're in a different subfolder to the mesh.. not that it's really important but do you know if that's meant to happen?
