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.

The conversion is not 100% the same like the Adult one
Because there were so many edits I made to make it fitting for Child age (due to drastic body difference between Adult and Child), it's like making brand new clothes using EA's mesh.
- Clothing mesh around crotch pants, chest, collar, and shirt on every morph I edited manually to make it fitting for Child's body.
- Bones around collar were assigned manually so the Child's neck won't protrude against collar (tested on fat Child) and collar texture won't stretch oddly.
- I reduced the shiny effect by altering the specular so the clothes won't have shiny plastic feel.
- For TopOnly: I made the bottom part of shirt bigger so when paired with EA's base game & EP pants will not have clipping issues.
- For TopOnly: I altered the UV mapping so the shirt texture won't overlap with pants & shoes textures when paired together (tested).

TopOnly is shirt only, worn by left model. Outfit is fullbody outfit, worn by right model. Color presets for each clothing using EA's original Adult Mandarin Silk color presets.

Compatibility & Categories:
  • For male Child.
  • This mesh is Base Game compatible, no need to have World Adventures EP installed.
  • Categories: Everyday & Formal & Outerwear. Not valid for random.

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.

Very nice. I've been hoping for a while that somebody would convert this to child size. I don't get why EA didn't do that in the first place. Just one little itch; I'd hoped it would have been converted for both genders, but that's a minor itch. Great job, well done and thanks for sharing this with us.

@FerDeLance Tangzhuang,of this model, traditionally is for boys, not girls. Why I didn't convert to girls? I suggest you search "tangzhuang" or “唐裝" and learn Chinese culture first.

I don't do request. I hope downloaders stop expecting/requesting more from creator and learn how to convert by herself/himself. CC Creator is not your employee.
You can easily convert the clothes to other gender using TSRW or Nraas.

(I don't understand why are you saying itch itch? Was it English idiom? I'm from South East Asian country and English is not my first langauge. American/Western foreigners, please just use simple English only, so non-native English speakers can understand. Majority of internet users are non-native English speakers.)
