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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Default replacement of afbodydresslonghug:
- for adult and YA females
- categorized as Everyday and Formal
- career outfit - Sims wear this dress when they work as a Concert Pianist, Symphony Conductor, Lounge Singer, Master of Ceremonies and Ballroom Dancer
- I tried to stay close to maxis original colours but had to replace the white dress with bright yellow because this dress is just too cute to not have yellow recolour :]
- mesh by Skellington included
- the mesh has fat and preg morphs

Edit: I've added custom recolours (for adults and young adults; categorized as Everyday and Formal; mesh by Skell included)

Credits:
- mesh and textures by Skellington, shoes by Sentate

These are lovely! The maroon one and the black ones are my favorite, I really like the two tones. WCIF your models' hair? Particularly the blonde's in the lavender dress, and the plantsim's in the pink please.

What a wonderfully pleasant replacement, much nicer than the tired-looking Maxis dress!

The blonde's hair is from the Sims 2 EA Store and the green hair is my recolour of Trapping’s Pert Pixie Cut 3t2 (you can find maxis match recolours by Skellington here). I'll try to upload the plantsim’s hair tomorrow (or when I find the time to take preview pictures ).

These are super cute! I adore all your colours (especially that yellow ) but don't really like replacing Maxis things in my game. Any chance you happen to have non-default versions of your recolours?

Thank you! This is a million times better than the fugly EAxis version (which I almost never used!)!

I love these dresses! Although the defaults aren't working in my game properly I don't know if anyone else has the problem too, but it looks like the texture is stretching over the original mesh of the long dresses. So it looks like a long dress but the bottom where the custom dress cuts off is stretched skin.

I'm having the exact same problem in my game. I installed the original mesh from the provided link, but the dress doesn't show up properly.

It sounds like you may have another default replacement of this dress in your game.

I didn't think I did but, I guess it's possible. I'll have to do some hunting through my downloads folder. *Sigh* Thanks!

Perhaps she does, but I don't (I just checked by removing your default replacements from my downloads folder- and the dresses reverted back to the EAxis ones rather than different default replacement ones)...and I'm having the exact same problem! Turns out I was wrong- sort of! Long story short, I had a pregnancy-enabled version of that outfit (so, in essence, I DID have another default replacement for the dress!). All's well that ends well, I guess!

... Not sure what I did wrong. They work in replacing the 'everyday' dresses, but not the 'formal wear' ones. It was a wedding with everyone wearing those horrid dresses which sent me looking for replacements to begin with!

That's really odd. I am sorry, I don't know how to help.

You can download it from here. (It's a default replacement.)
