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.

Info
I want to participate in the Victorian London challenge and as I'm busy learning Bodyshop meshing and texturing, I think some new meshes and textures for Victorian toddlers would be a good idea.
I can't promise it is historically accurate but it sure looks cute.

To start from the bottom, I'm sure Victorian toddlers wouldn't wear Pampers Diapers so I made a texture on the basegame naked toddlerbody that is supposed to look like a piece of cloth knotted on the side and a diapercover texture on the basegame diapermesh. As I've read that toddlers would wear bloomers pantaloons I made a new mesh for that = PUbloomers.

To sleep in for the girls, I made a toddlerversion of the girls mesh "cfbodynightie" from the Family Fun Stuff pack = PUbodyNightie and for the boys a pantsversion = PUnightiePuffPants. For both boys and girls is the puffypants pajamas with shortsleeves, but as I made a pink texture this texture is for girls only = PUshortsleevesPuffyPants.




For Everyday/Casual there is a long sleeves version from the Free Time mesh "pfbodydresssailor", for boys with pants = PUsailorLMpuffPantsShoes, and for girls with a bow on the back and different shoes = PFdressSailorBowLM. I made an extra texture for this one with an apron. Boys usual were dressed in skirts too in the Victorian time but I wanted my boys to look like boys.



A coat is much needed in winter so I made a new long toddlercoat mesh from the Free Time toddlermesh "pfbodydresssailor" and the Seasons mesh "pubodyturtleneckscarf"= PFsailorCoatScarf.



My old PC gave up after almost 3 years of extensive use and I had to buy a new one. It took a lot of time to get the game and all the nessecairy programs working properly again. So I didn't have time to make more textures for the new meshes or make nice sharp clean Alpha textures as the reaction and movement of my new ergonomic mouse is uhm.... irritating.

All new meshes come with one EAmaxis texture and an UV-map. As always, do with my creations whatever you want, just keep my work free.

A big thank you for all the kind people that made the tools and tutorials I used to make these meshes. Every time I only have to do a little search, ask a question or, with the new tools, do a few clicks to perform a change in a mesh, I have a deep warm feeling of gratitude.

I think these are adorable and the few children who are permitted to exist in my Victorian neighborhood will be overjoyed to have new clothing (especially when the Ladies Society visits the slums with new clothing in tow).

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Wonderful, Cocomama. There is a poor historical content for toddlers in the net, and in my opinion the whole set looks perfectly in time. Great addition.

Wow, you are officially my favourite person of the day, there really isn't enough toddler and elder clothing for the Victorian era and you've found that niche market and leapt in guns blazing. I think we're all guilty of wanting our boys to look like boys and everything else is in my opinion perfect. Whoop whoop!

I am Very Very happy with your lovely comments, it makes worth all the trouble I went through getting it up on time. Thankfully I've found a Vista driver for my mouse.
What a relief that my upload is excepted for the challange, I wasn't sure it was Victorian London enough. I always think of Dickens and The Seven Dials clothing from Sussissogood in dark slums and so, and this is more for the upper class.

Oh these are absolutely adorable! They'll definitely be adorning my toddlers as soon as they're all downloaded. Thanks!!

These are all adorable, but they only show up as thumbnails in my game. They don't work for my toddlers, only turning them into invisible floating heads, lol. They're adorable though, and if I knew why they didn't work, I'd fix it! I only have the base game and I installed the meshes and everything.
