This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Some months ago I´ve done some stuff for maxisdreams, but since nothing happened there since July I don´t know if there will ever be a new update. That´s really too bad... However, I thought I could upload some of the things here then.
These dresses are on the maxisdreams-site already, but only for teens and I like them in my game and thought I could do them for adults as well.
They aren´t anything special, but I think they look very pretty

The teen dresses use my conversion mesh of the "Partydress" which came with AL (it´s from this thread, the Polygon Count is 1972). You don´t have to download it separately, it´s included in the rar-file, no EP required.
(The mesh has a working fat morph and is bumpmap enabled)
The adult dresses use the original AL mesh, so you need Apartmentlife for the adult dresses!

I´ve used textures of Celebration Stuff clothing, so my dresses kind of match these certain celebration dresses. You can see a pic below, as well as the dresses from different angles.

Here are all colours on the ladies:

And the teen dresses, completely the same:

Hope, you´ll like them
See you!

I can't use the Adult ones, as I don't have AL.
But thank you for the Teen ones!!

I love the colours and simplicity of these dresses, thank you very much they will be well-used

Glad you shared these here. Traume is a great site, but if it's not updating, it would be a shame for your dresses to just sit there unavailable.
