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.
So lemme start by saying I have been playing Sims since the first game, and I have never made any kind of custom content before! I was super excited when I figured it out (and I'm already getting super ambitious and starting to study meshing--but that's for another day)

I am a big fan of polka dot dresses. So when I started up my game and realized that there were no dots to be found, I decided to make some of my own. Here we have the "Frilly Romantic" dress, now with 100% more dots!

There are two versions of this dress included here. One has polka dots on both the bodice as well as one of the middle ruffles, and the other only has them on the bodice. This Everyday dress is enabled for Teen through Adult, and (if I can pat myself on the back just a bit) looks super cute in-game.

There's one tiny issue with the swatch thumbnail on the bodice-only version: for some reason, it wouldn't let save the thumbnail for it without making the dress disappear completely from the game, so it appears as the green-and-blue ColorMagic logo. This does not affect the dress in any way, just that tiny little thumbnail you see when you're choosing your colors.

Many thanks goes to:
  • This tutorial from Platinum Simmers, which I followed while making this dress
  • This tutorial as well, which helped me figure out how to edit in GIMP
  • and the maker of this texture set, which is where I got the very cute polka dot pattern.
