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 was going to convert this only for teens initially, but decided to make more changes after taking a look at it in CAS - namely:
  • making a plain version;
  • making a new control map that recolors the (previously unrecolorable) stencil;
  • rearranging the channels (and adding one);
  • adding maternity morphs to all age groups.

So, in the end, I ended up remaking both the adult and elder versions (also reshaped the meshes a bit while I was at it).
It's a lovely dress, but the way the channels were assigned really wasn't doing it any favors!
It took a bit to create a new control map?then the teen version was finicky in terms of bones?probably because I got lucky with not having to adjust the bones for the last two conversions lol.

Now there are three control options, as shown in the previews:
1. stencil is removed and turned into a design with recolorable areas - 4 channels;
2. version with unrecolorable stencil - 3 channels;
3. plain version (no stencil) - 3 channels.



Information
  • For teen-elder females (separate files).
  • The adult and elder versions are from the Boardwalk Attire Store set, but they are NOT required and these won't conflict with them.
  • All versions can be found under Everyday, Formal and Makeover. They are enabled for maternity but NOT enabled for Random.
  • 3 presets: with recolorable design (4 channels), with stencil (3 channels), plain (3 channels).
  • Custom thumbnails.
