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.
The family I'm playing right now had a maid whom I dressed in the outfit reserved for the maid service you can hire via phone.
Well, I happened to zoom in on her and discovered that the outfit could make a very nice vintage-style everyday outfit if edited a bit!

Therefore, I removed the apron, pocket and buttons on the front and added two more channels.
The French maid outfit only has two recolorable areas - the body and the accents -, and I separated them the way you see in the preview image.

  • For Young Adult - Adult females.
  • Enabled for Everyday, Formal, Career, Makeover, Random.
  • 4 recolorable channels: collar + sleeve edges, torso, waist scarf, skirt.
  • EA-match CAS thumbnails: 3D, generated by the game, matching everything else.
  • Custom CAS thumbnails: they look like the MTS thumbnail.

Known issues

When you click on the outfit in CAS, the top part will appear black and the bottom will be white, but selecting a preset and/or recoloring the dress gets rid of this.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
