This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Apartment Life is required

I've only ever made things for my own use so this is my first upload! Hopefully everything turns out okay

I've slowly been working on recategorizing the Maxis clothing in my game and thought it was weird that Elder Females had one less version of this outfit than their Adult Female counterparts. I went to look at the texture files that came with Apartment Life and found this texture there but there was no reference to it in the Skins package from AL that I was extracting references from for my recategorization project.

I cloned one of the other colors and then went in with SimPE and made sure it referenced the efbodytech-blue texture and decustomized it. It should show up at the beginning of your Everyday Elder Female clothing in CAS---I'm not really familiar with changing how the clothing is sorted so I left that alone (meaning it won't show up alongside the other colors). Also, I'm working with the Ultimate Collection so I don't know if this outfit perhaps does show up in the disc version which then means you don't really need this.

Download and extract to your Downloads folder. In CAS and Bodyshop the "delete" option will appear--I don't know if it would hurt anything to delete a custom/cloned outfit this way but I recommend just deleting the file in your downloads folder to remove it from your game.

I wasn't able to find this anywhere else on MTS but I very well could be being blind. Please let me know if it is somewhere else on this site.
