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:

These dresses are beautiful, however I ran into some problems.
My sims with custom hair (Just about every single one of them) Revert back to a random maxis original hairstyle while they become pregnant, and wearing these dresses. When they wear swimwear or underwear, it dosn't happen.
not sure if this is happening to anyone else.
I only have the base game, not sure if that's the problem.

PeriwinklePixieDust - Are you sure you are using the correct version of the Pregnancy Wear Any Outfit hack for your game? What hair was your sim using? What other hacks do you have installed, and are you sure they are correct versions for your game? Have you tried running them through the hack conflict detection utility at simwardrobe.com? Have you tried putting only one custom hair, my outfits, and the Pregnancy Wear Any Outfit hack in your game and seeing if it still occurs with nothing irrelevant possibly conflicting? I have tested them as maternity wear and as you can see in the pic I took, and there's nothing different about the way I made this than previous maternity wear (or indeed, other maternity wear not by me) and it's cloned from a base game mesh... so exactly where the problem might be, I'm not sure. If you can provide more information (answering the questions above) that would help a lot in figuring out if it's something on my end or otherwise.

Hey there, HP, I have these sundresses in my game as maternity default and I absolutely ADORE them! I've been using them for several months when, all of a sudden, I get this:

(I've inserted a link instead of a pic because it's definitely NSFW)

What the hell?

I ran a GUID conflict and nothing showed up. I have not moved or messed with any of the color options for the dress - I gave them their own folder along with the package that made them default replacements for maternity wear and have not had a problem. I posted about it over on the LJ Sims community and a couple of other people have had this problem, too. Have you had any reports about this or do you have any idea what this could be? Perhaps one of the recolors is off? Any help you could give would be appreciated!

Ah. Actually, that's caused by Gwillewyn's default replacement package for maternity wear having a conflict with BV, I think? If you use Squinge's hack rather than Gwillewyn's replacement package they work fine. Nothing in particular wrong with my stuff, I think just the way she did her replacement packages doesn't quite work with BV but is okay under Seasons.
