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.
Looking for the perfect party dress that screams "dance with me"?
This retro-style Petticoat Party Dress will make you feel young, sexy and incredibly alive

This dress is an overhaul of my Petticoat Party Dress that I made for the NFA Contest. It had some overall improvement and small fixes and now has a real petticoat underneath!

  • this dress is for young adult and adult females.
  • this creation is basegame compatible!
  • you'll find it under everyday and formal wear. Random enabled, makeover enabled. Not outerwear enabled (it's a summer dress!)
  • custom mesh with new LODS and fit/fat/thin morphs.
  • meshed flower on the skirt
  • the texture is a mix of EA textures, handpainted and photoskinned elements.
  • four colour channels, two different mask styles and overlay combinations for maximum customizability. See picture in the attachment for mapping and to view color options of one mask style.
  • four presets included (you can view all of them in the attached pictures)
  • custom thumbnails included for easy recognition.

Clipping Issue: Due to the voluminous skirt, there is some clipping if the sims sits down etc. Just thought I'd mention it.

Now let's have a look at the dress:

Polygon Counts:
LOD 1 group 0 : 229 vertices, 10236 faces
LOD 1 group 1: 918 vertices, 4719 faces

Lod 2 group 0: 977 vertices, 3843 faces
Lod 2 group 1: 339 vertices, 1482 faces

Lod 3 group 0: 526 vertices, 1713 faces
Lod 3 group 1: 339 vertices, 1482 faces
