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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
When I got Family Fun Stuff, I immediately took note of the long gown for girls. I've used bits and pieces of it for a number of projects, but I can't recall any Sim girl actually wearing that dress. It's just too long and impractical, and it looks pretty silly when they're climbing off the school bus. It's not completely ugly, though, so I thought I'd alter it. Here's the result: fifteen new party dresses for your little Sim girls.

The dresses come in three styles: multi, plain, and white. The original Maxis colours are included in each set.





I've set these as Everyday and Formal. The dresses use a new mesh, which is included in the zip file. A working fat morph is included (see the brown-haired girl with black glasses, above). No EPs or SPs are required.

Enjoy!

party dress = 2076

Additional Credits:
Most hair is by Maxis, with the exception of the long ponytail for girls (by melodie9) and the updo with the white bow for girls (by Trapping and remi). The pink hat is by Maxis, but it was age-converted by me.

Aww, this short version is much more modern and cuter than the original FFS dress. Thank you!

It's wonderful. The only colour I miss is a lime green. Do you make them for toddlers too?

Thank you for uploading this! I always liked the dress too, but you're right. It looks weird to wear a floor-length dress as an everyday outfit (unless it's a victorian sim or something). These are adorable! I'll definitely be using them (:

Unfortunately, it doesn't show up in base game. It just comes up as invisible body. Maybe it DOES require Family fun stuff because most of these kind of conversions require them even if the creator doesn't think so. Sorry. :/

It sounds like you didn't install the mesh. I didn't link anything to the Family Fun Stuff files, so it is 100% base game compatible.

This doesn't work for me, I've got the Freetime Expansion and Family Fun stuff pack. And it comes up with the actual dress on my sim daughter, but a big pile of skin underneath, like her skin colour, it's quite creepy.But i dislike it being there.

I just made a boarding school and wanted my Sim girls to have cute dresses to wear for things like birthday parties and such. These are adorable.
