Fur-Trimmed Jacket with Bell Sleeves

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.
I did originally make this as part of Sansa's wardrobe for my GoT series, but I figured it would work for absolutely any other female sim. It makes a statement and is very slimming, but also promises to be warm and cozy due to the fur trim.

(Although maybe the bell sleeves aren't the best choice for the dead of winter).

Just because this was an extremely simple frankenmesh, there are almost no issues (if any) with clipping or bad morphs. If you spot any, please leave a comment, and I will try to find a way to fix it. There are four presets, each with a unique channel setup, so CASters can CASt to their hearts' content.

All comments, feedback, criticism, and thanks are welcome! Enjoy!

YA/AF, enabled for everyday and formal as well as outerwear, enabled for random.
Two to three recolorable channels (depending on which preset)
All LOD's and morphs except for the pregnant morph are supported.
File size: ~1 MB (1024x1024 textures)

Polygon Counts:
~4000 polys, ~2500 vertices

Additional Credits:
Mesh and texture credits: EA
Tools used: Milkshape 1.8.5, Mesh Toolkit (thanks ever so much to CMarNYC), CTU (thank you to Delphy), PS6, GIMP 2.0

Age: Young Adult Adult
Gender: Female
Clothing Type: Everyday Formal Outerwear
Clothing Style: No Style

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This looks awesome, I'm about to go try it out in my game! I always love new clothing for my sims but this feels like it fits one of my sims so much better than any of the other outer wear I have! Thanks!

I don't know what you mean by sims3package... do you mean sims3pack? If so, I'm sorry to say that I only offer downloads in package file format (and the same goes for most downloads on ModTheSims).

If you play with a lot of CC, I highly, highly encourage you to learn how to work with the Mods folder and learn how to merge CC. It seems like a pain at first, but believe me, it's more than worth it to not have to deal with the many issues that crop up with EA's launcher.

Love this, but I've noticed a lot of clipping/texture issues with the sleeves, especially if the Sim is wearing gloves.
Still, great and very pretty.
