I have created some fabric patterns. I have made them by extracting patterns from Sims 2 clothing. I have made 4 styles which belong together. All in all there are 10 new patterns. I have made them with TSR Workshop and extracted them with Sims3pack Multi-Installer.

Here is a detail view of all 10 patterns.

The patterns are categorized as fabric pattern. They are seamless. You can use them for clothing or objects with fabric like couches, towels, ...
  • Pattern 1: Corded pattern. 1a with horizontal stripes, 1b with vertical stripes. 2 color channels (stripes and the rest)
  • Pattern 2: Silk pattern. 2a and 2c are horizontal. 2b and 2d are vertical. 2a and 2b is a smaller version of 2c and 2d. 1 color channel.
  • Pattern 3: Woven pattern. 3a is basic, 3b is 3a combined with a checked pattern which was already in game. 1 color channel.
  • Pattern 4: Wool Pattern. 4a is the matching seam pattern. 4b is the basic pattern. 1 color channel.

I have used all patterns with this umbrella. So you can see the differences within a pattern style and between the patterns.

Here are some clothing using this patterns. They are: 2d (white), 2b (red), 2a in the middle (blue) and 2b the rest (white), 2c in the middle (white) and 2d the rest (blue), 1a the jacket (dark) and 3b the top (blue), 4b the jacket (grey) and 1b the pullover (red) and 3a the shirt (white), 3a the pullover (red) and 1a the scarf (white).

Below there are more pictures.

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.

Thank you for your nice words. Some of the clothing comes with the basegame and some I have bought from the Sims3Store. I don't take request. I have 2 children and few freetime. Use my creations as you wish. You don't have to ask.

Oepu, your work is never flashy, but it is ALWAYS high-quality and a must-have. Every single thing you create looks like it should have shipped with the game, and I appreciate the effort you put into it. I can't imagine my game without your downloads.
