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.
*** Update 14.3.2018 I updated the package to a more reasonable file-size (3600kb) after it has finally, finally come to my attention just how huge the original file was. Please re-download and forgive me for my stupid mistake which lead to such a humongous package.***

I always loved dressing up my female sims in long puffy skirts, but I could never find a skirt long and puffy enough for my needs. That's why this was one of the first meshes I made after I finally learned how to create Sims 3 custom content.

The skirt is an edit of the Store's Simplicity Day Dress . It works nicely with most of the regular tops but there might be some clipping with longer tops.

There are two presets with two different channel options. One is gradient with two channels, the other is plain with only one channel.

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.

I really like this skirt. Thank you!
But is there a reason why the package file is so large?

I'm also wondering this. A skirt is generally a much, smaller file and it appears to be very simple(and very nice). Is it the gradient?

Just a quick question, why is the file size about the equivalent of a 1 bedroom house! (also looks very good)

Honestly, I don't know why the file size is so big. Now that it's been brought to my attention, I am mortified I uploaded something so huge.
I was very new to the Sims 3 creating when I made it. I will look in to the package files to hopefully see what went wrong here, but if anyone more experienced in Sims 3 decides to pay a look to it, I would be extremely grateful.

Edit: I managed to get it down to 3.580 kb which is significantly smaller, but still quite a lot. I am going to test the new package in game and then if everything looks alright, update the package here.

I just noticed the update and want to thank you for this. Redownloaded it and am about to check in-game now.

This is perfect--exactly what I've been looking for. My 30s' hood need more skirts like this. Any chance we'll see this for teens as well?
