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.

Hey everyone! I'm back and I come bearing gifts! Well, one gift, but still.

So, I present to you my favourite dress as of yet, and oh my gosh it took forever. Yes, it is photoskinned, but it's not a copy/paste/done kind of thing, seriously. The textures were blurry, wouldn't fit properly around the mesh, and led to a few days of sitting around putting everything off trying to get it right.

Anyway, here's a kaftan dress with plain black pumps, perfect for a stroll in an exotic marketplace or neon bazaar.

Mesh is by Just Sims 2 and is included in the .rar file.
These show up under both Everyday and Formal sections in CAS.



I also made some recolours (see attached images, yay for selective colouring!), because I wanted to and because I had a feeling I was going to be nagged to make them lol.

Well, enjoy! And please spare a second to hit the 'thank you' button or leave me a comment, those always make my day (:

The weirdest thing happened today - I saw this dress at forever 21. I was wondering where I had seen it before, and I remembered it was the 'show off your creations' thread @ GOS. It was funny. xD

Anywho, thanks for making this. The texture looks nice!

I put this on a sim, and it's absolutely gorgeous, until she crouches down to tickle her toddler, and then her ankles don't bend and she folds over on her toes. I don't know much about this, but I'm assuming it's a mesh thing, and thus not really anything you can do anything about, but maybe I'm wrong? Anyway, perhaps you'd find it useful to know.

Thank you guys (:

Sunbee: I think it's a problem with the mesh, I'll check to see if that happens in my game as well - do you know if it happens with any other actions?

I love all, but I planned on my laid-back sims wearing it on holiday on the beach - so the shoes aren't perfect for me :P
Do you know how to change the shoes or can you recommend a guide so I can do it myself? :]

I didn't slap you. I high-fived you in the face...

DJ_Tiffi; The shoes are part of the mesh, unless you know how to mesh, the shoes can't exactly be changed. :p
