I decided to make a mod that will get rid of gender restrictions on kids' clothes. After all, there's really no such thing as "boys' clothes" or "girls' clothes"! This is just the base game version. I'll also be doing a toddler version, as well as an addition for each EP and SP (...that I have). This mod will simply change all the base game clothes to be unisex-coded.
Note that this mod will NOT work with any other clothing recat mods. Unfortunately, you'll have to choose just one. Also, there are special installation instructions for this mod, provided both here at Phaenoh's recat mod and in the "install instructions" tab. The mod is best placed in a certain folder in your program files. You can just plunk it in your downloads folder too, but all the clothes will have the custom content star, so you'll have to remember not to try and delete them.

Phaenoh, for her very helpful tutorial on recategorizing Maxis stuff.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

There's one striped skirt that you forgot to unlock for males. Other than that, thank you.
