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.
Alma Tunics

Here are some plain and simple empire waist tunics with long sleeves or elbow length sleeves.
This is why I've been making a ton of leggings for some time! I intend to make more tunics
with different hems, different sleeve styles. This is meant to be just the first set.

These tunics are on TWO new meshes. I wanted to use my alpha sleeve empire tunic mesh
but that old mesh has transparency issues when the sleeves and tunic are both long.
I had to make the sleeves their own group, hence new meshes. Preg morph, curvy morph.

Bonus Leggings

I'm throwing in a few bonus leggings. The jean ones require my leg23 mesh.
SkeletonTea contributed the lovely mid-booties, totally swiped those from her.
The white ones are a recolor of chalkmetal's pantless flats. Use chalk's mesh,
or my version with morphs, or dark_moon's morphs, but pick just one flats mesh.



brown capris with clogs, grey #24 leggings with orange vans, black lace leggings by Skellington, grey #7 leggings with black witch shoes,
black skinnies with red shoes by migamoo/threehundred, NEW white leggings on chalk mesh, (seated) white slim pants with black boots


NEW #23 jeggings with SkeletonTea mid-booties, white #2 leggings with white shoes, black DigiMigaNouk skirt with brown boots,
black #9 leggings with brown boots, grey #22 leggings with Birks, bunhead's cigarette pants, (seated) Skell's lace leggings

You're the best! I'm always glad to see that you posted something new. Thanks for helping my sims to be less boring (and not look all the same!).

Thank you! I do plan to make teen versions... eventually. I have tons of plans and very limited time. So maybe this year, maybe in three years when this stuff is no longer even in fashion, hard to say.

If you're not already on tumblr, I recommend looking for new stuff there. Huge, nay colossal pain in the butt to find anything and there isn't a lot of ordinary looking teen stuff, but it is out there. Skellington has stuff, I would start there. Yandereplum has stuff. Can search for the hashtag #sims 2 download.

Lovely, and with a broomstick skirt and a hijab, perfect for my Asian sims.... just one thing, 5 of them show up in the catalog with only the mesh thumbnail, although when I click a thumbnail, the sim gets a specific colour. Since I don't have all EPs running, maybe something to do with that?

Zephyr, no idea, sorry. You can try manually rebuilding the thumbnail in the catalog. Something something edit mode maybe, ctrl-n maybe, I don't recall. Then right click the thumbnail to redraw it.
