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.

I see some Sims 3 to Sims 2 conversions from time to time, and I like using some of those bits and pieces to make clothes for my Sim kids. I liked this little coat that Steffano converted for TS2... but I hated the boots. I had just the thing to go with these old-fashioned dress coats: Yuxi's boots!

When I actually got a look at the mesh, though, there were a few problems. The cuffs did a weird stretching thing over the Sim's wrists, so I fixed that (the hands will poke through the cuffs now at certain extreme angles, but I think it looks better than having the cuffs stretch all out of shape). There was no fat morph, so I had to make one of those. And, worst of all, when the Sim sat down, something in her lap rose up into a point! That didn't seem very appropriate, so I did my best to fix it. The animation looks a little sharp when the Sim walks now... but it's better than having that other problem.

Then I made my Sims some new colours for their coats. I went with darker colours, because these seem like wintry outerwear. The coats come in forest, navy, red, black, brown, and grey. I paired the coats with tights and some old-fashioned, lace-up boots. For a final touch, I did a little bit of tooling on the leather purse:




These coat outfits use a new mesh (included) that has a working fat morph (see the blond girl in the red coat, above). I've set them as Everyday and as Outerwear. No EPs or SPs are required.

Enjoy!

A big thanks to Steffano for converting the original coat from TS3 to TS2. Another big thanks goes to Yuxi for the boots.
