Hi there,

another little set of four patterns from me.
This time i made some lovely flowery patterns for spring dresses.
They're all extremely floral.

I sorted them in Fabrics, because, well, see post title, but some of these would look nice as wallpaper too.

Hope you enjoy them!

Instruction on installing them can be found here.

Thanks again to Delphy, for patience in dealing with stuff that doesn't work.

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.

"DecoFlower" is not showing up in game for me. Can you take a look at it? I've already tried re-downloading, removing all other mods, etc... It's not showing up in the fabric category, or anywhere else as far as I can tell.

oopsie, packaged the wrong patterns. Sorry about that.
I'll fix it right away.
The DecoFlower pattern isn't in the pictures, it's in 'themed' and *should* have been part of the next set.
The one you're missing is SummerFloral.

Fixed. Please redownload and let them overwrite, or just unrar and add the SummerFloral one to your Packages folder.

Thank you for these much needed floral patterns that don't look like my grandmother's dress print (unlike most in-game florals). They look really nice on both clothing and furniture.

Awesome work, but I'm wondering how you managed to get a green skintone. I thought the only in game skin tones that weren't natural was Red and Blue. Of course I havn't had the game long so I might be wrong.

Again, awesome work, keep it up!

there's six skintone 'sliders' you can choose from, and one of those is green
