This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
12 Fancy Shirts for Granny

These fancy shirts feature lace applique, pintuck folds, pinstriped fabric, and buttoned sleeves. They are 100% handpainted and based on a JCPenney shirt. The pintuck folds are meant to look 3D, so the bumpmap emphasizes them, but you will see them even without bumpmapping.

Requires a MESH

elegant bun hair by dustfinger, M&G curly hair by Wojtek
black pencil skirt, black full skirt,

Gelydh capris, hiphugger capris

Additional Credits:

Thanks to the makers of SimPE, MilkShape, plugins (wes_h and demon), LithUnwrap, and GIMP, for great tools. Thanks to JCPenney for inspiration.

I feel as though I just spent half a day getting to know you since I've downloaded just about everything you've created now!

I love the variety of colours and styles you create for the entire Sim family. I wanted to say thanks for "fixing" so many Maxis oversights and for sharing your time and talent with the Sim community. There are many in the world of Sim creators who go unnoticed or are not fully appreciated for all they I just wanted you to know that I am indeed a fan of your work.

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

The detailing on these is marvelous and the shape is perfect and so many lovely colors. That should be enough for all my elders to have one. I wonder if Penney's still has these. I wouldn't mind having a couple for myself.
