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.

For whatever reason, for ages I've wanted to make sheer harem pants. Finally here they are, along with a matching top. This is a set of a sheer top with bra and harem pants with underwear, both with a see-through outer layer and a separate body underneath. They're both fully fat/fit/thin morphable. Both are for adult/YA females, and enabled for Everyday, Sleep, and Formal.



The top has three color channels: bra cups, bra strap, and sheer covering. The bottom has two color channels: underwear and sheer covering.

Issues:
Because of the way I had to map the transparent meshes on the textures, the quality of patterns on the transparent parts may be degraded. This is very apparent when using Low Sim Detail, not as much at higher settings. I've included one preset with a pattern for each item but you may prefer to use only solid colors. There's also some jaggies at the edges of the see-though meshes, which possibly may be caused by the transparency setting.

I was unable to get rid of all areas of clipping, like the one below at the knee at lod 3 while napping:



Most of these are in the lower lods and should be pretty much unnoticeable unless you're playing with Low Sim Detail. There's also some sinking of the hands into the pants, although this happens with EA clothes too. While walking, sitting, and most sim activities should be fine, a few animations will cause a small amount of clipping even at lod 1, which may be unavoidable with layered clothing.

Technical:
The transparency was done by setting the mesh shader to CasSimHairSimple. Tutorial is here: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=447671

Polygon Counts:
Sheer top: 3484
Harem pants: 1658
