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.
My fashion sense is stuck in the 80s and 90s but my sims demanded something more current so here's a midlength HiLo skirt I saw on zulily. The skirt is for adult and young adult women. It comes in the six colors shown below. The waist is below the belly button so pair with untuckable shirts if you don't want bare bellies. The skirt alpha mesh has curvy and pregnant morphs. I minimized clipping and mesh self interesection as much as I could, but could not eliminate it entirely. This is a modification of my teen alpha skirt. Also check out Trapping's adult skirt.

They look great! Normally I don't like minis, but for some reason, the sheer layer over it makes it look more classy to me. Anyway, thank you!

They look superb! The alpha skirt seems to be really well done, I'd love to do some recolours with this! Is there a chance you'd offer the mesh with different shoes, like some highheels of the pixicat kind? :3

I was considering making some 3d shoes with chunky heels but don't know if it's something I'll do. So... maybe. I'm perfectly happy with someone taking my mesh and putting different shoes on it. Trapping did that with the teen mesh, added heels and converted for adults. Link in main thread.

I really love this mesh, too. While I was going thru my fabric texture folders looking for stuff to make recolors, I wondered -- can you make it have a sheer skirt over panties instead of a mini skirt? I haven't opened it up in bodyshop yet so I don't know how the alpha or anything works. Just wondering if it can be done?
Regardless, I love your new mesh and am working on some recolors of it.

The teen mesh was a skirt over panties. Trapping converted it for adults, so her version might be a skirt over panties for adults, but I haven't looked at it in bodyshop yet. Thanks for the comment!

It's funny how I don't really like this style for real people -- and I see I'm not alone in this -- but I'm more than happy for my sims to wear it. I really like the way it looks. Thanks for sharing it.
