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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Fanseefem Project:

The Fanseefem project is my effort to bring normal clothes to our adult female sims. Sick of overdressed sims, I've been making lots of nice, simple things that real ladies would wear everyday.

This is part five of the Fanseefem series, a little more dressy than the previous stuff but still quite casual.

It's also a reinterpretation of the child female outfit that came with Seasons - I wasn't able to do a direct conversion of the textures, and I wasn't really fond of the bow and flowers, but I loved the shape and the textures, so I used the five base textures from that mesh to create the textures for these - due to the exotic mapping of the child mesh, I wasn't able to convert the top textures, hence why those are solid, but I think it's rather cute that way anyway.

All of these work for young adults, adults, and elders. There's a fat morph shaped much like Maxis fat. And because I thought they'd be adorable for maternity wear, they work for that too:


Gwillewyn has made a lovely default replacement add-on for these, so you can use them as a replacement for the Maxis maternity wear. Otherwise you'll need Squinge's pregnant sims wear any outfit hack to use these as maternity wear.

Because of the scope and grandeur of this project, I do not have any plans at this time to do the same for teens. Please don't ask - I may if the mood strikes me, but I hate doing stuff over, and doing the same huge pile of stuff again is enough to drive me batty.

What's Included:

This set has one new mesh:
  • Sundress Mesh - Short puffed sleeves, bare arms, and a smooth bodice falling into a gently flared skirt that ends just above the knee. The shoes are simple sandals.

There are also 14 recolours for the sundress mesh, including the standard colours for the Fanseefem series (well, okay, I did white not grey, but it seemed like more of a white thing), plus the other colours that the child version of this came in: 60's green flowers, pink and yellow diamonds, blue and red, and white fishies.

Additionally there's one with a fuchsia top and sage green bottom called Rose Campion - inspired by the flower that grows in my garden.

Absolutely everything is clearly labeled so you can remove any recolours you may not want.

Credits:

Thanks yet again to fanseelamb for inspiring the Fanseefem project. Thanks also to Tiggerypum for advice and help on meshing, Wes_H for Unimesh and his other plugins, everyone who has contributed to the development of SimPE, Dr Pixel, and Rasputina. Thanks go to bluetexasbonnie for identifying the rose campion from my garden so I could name the recolour after it.

And also a big thank you to the rest of the MTS2 staff (especially Delphy) for making a place where I can learn how to do cool stuff like this, and share it with all of you.

Model Credits:

Both models are my sims. You can get full details on all of their skins, makeup, etc., as well as download them here at MTS2:

Thank you for the wonderful everday dress!
Perfect summer dresses. Now I wish I could get those for me! I really like that these are available for maternity, there is some other "Maternity Wear" out there that no pregnant anything would wear. No stilettos while preggers!

These are not frumpy either, which is just as good, it seems Maternity Wear can fall in two categories, "Super-Frump" -which is fine for when you are so big you can't leave the house and "Preggy-Streetwalker" - that one is kinda self explaining.

I have divided up my sims into four different accounts. One is "Medieval," one is "Victorian," one is "Country," one is "Modern," The fanseelamb project is the only wardrobe in the "Modern," and this dress will also be used in the "Country." Thank you so much for taking the time to make my game and so many others much more comfy.

Nice! This looks like the kind of thing I wear all summer long.

I really like the project of making ordinary clothes for sims!

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html
