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.
I will admit that I'm a vintage (60's) Barbie fan. And re-creating some of my favorite doll fashions for the sims is something I've been wanting to do for a while now, just for the fun of it! Even if you can't stand the dolls, you might be able to use this if you like retro-clothing.

Up next is Sweet Dreams. It features a babydoll top with matching shorts, along with blue ribbon details.

Most of Barbie's vintage sleepwear/undies were made from very thin, transparent fabric. I figured it would be best to keep things appropriate rather then accurate this time.. ha! The babydoll's lower half is a bit transparent though, which you can see in the pics. And no heels... I don't care that Barbie wears heels everywhere, I don't like them on my sim's sleepwear. :P
It's not 100% accurate, but I think it turned out well.



This uses a mesh by Fashion Twist, which is included in the zip file.

This shows up in the SLEEPWEAR section ONLY!

Enjoy.

I'm loving this collection so much! I can't wait to see what's next. Any chance you will be doing the Enchanted Evening dress? (the pink one with the white fur stole)

I want to, but I haven't foud the right meshes yet. I don't know how to mesh either, so I don't know if I will be able to make it or not.

I agree with your comment about heels on sleepwear. It's also very hard to swim when wearing heels. :D. I do appreciate creators that leave them off swimwear, undies, and PJs

Wow, that is beautiful! I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the wonderful work you have done, but is there any chance of your doing recolours for this mesh? thanks again.

This is so cute and I agree with you about the heels. Who wears highheels to bed? Thanks for sharing.

I love this barbie idea! I LOVE the fashionable 60s <3 Barbie was just as much of a trendsetter back then as any idol today.

I also love the pose you got her to do in the last photo. So sweet and innocent!

I'm excited for more! :D

Thank you! I absolutely love your collection. Has Barbie ever worn any Outerwear type clothing? I'm not familiar with the vintage barbies so I'm not sure. ^^; I would love one for my game. :D

BTW, where did you get the hairstyle for your model? I need it!! Thank you! keep up the great work. I cant wait to see more.

HAIR REQUEST: Long Curly Hair (i.e.: 01 & 02) for MALES (bld/br).

There were a couple outerwear-type outfits released. I haven't decided if I'm going to make them yet though. ^_^

The hair came with Apartment Life, I believe.
