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:

Recolours:

You're welcome to recolour these as much as you like. I have a layer-separated PSD with everything all nice and original and stuff if you want - let me know if you'd like it.

Oh, okay, I hadn't heard about that before. Thanks so much for letting me know!

Ahhh, I love these sundresses! I've been making recolours of these for my game, came here to see if anyone else had and noticed that you said you had a PSD of the textures - could I please have that? It'd make recolouring much quicker :p

I love these, and I've downloaded the default replacements for pregnant sims. I have the same problem as PeriwinklePixieDust. I don't have any other global hacks. Another problem goes with shoulders. Some dresses (maybe all?) shows a little bit of their shoulders there were sleeves starts.

Anyway, even with problems they are much better than Maxis original

Thanks!

After Seasons you can't use the default replacements for pregnant sims by gwillewyn. Better to use the pregnancy wear any outfit hack by Squinge, which can now be found at Sims2Graveyard.com - the issue with the default replacements, honestly, has nothing to do with me - these are made perfectly normally as maternity wear.

I have noticed a tiny 1 or 2 pixel spot where you can see skin near the shoulders myself, but it's such a small thing, I haven't really bothered messing with it.

Thanks for this blue-green dress, it is really sweet. I don't like the rest of dresses, maybe a few, but not all of them, but I appreciate the default mothernity replacement with this set. So thank you. This Fansefeem project doesnn't meet my needs, but this blue-green dress is one I love from it :D

No worries! I've done some searching and have found Squinge's hacks, and this one works for Seasons! http://www.insimenator.org/showthre...highlight=servo

If you have Inteen, though, use the link below. I have it and the link above will conflict. This one I'm pretty sure is only for people with inteen and ep 5 or ep 7.

I love the design!!!! Its perfect!!!! The solid colour at the top was a good touch, without it the Seasons texture, would problbly make me paranoid, or more paranoid, that sounds like something you would say....... (Batty?Battier?)

Thanks, love these! I'm thinking about recoloring these (and possibly making matching child versions). Do you still have the PSD files? If you do, could you send them to me?
