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.
I've always liked bodydressformaltrumpet (+ the pink one) from the basegame, but the random stripes and shiny shoes made it unusable for me, so I decided to fix it! jellymeduza shared an elder conversion of this dress here :-)

There are three files available for download:
  • DEFAULT_BG_DRESS.rar contains one .package file and is a default replacement for both the purple and pink bodydressformaltrumpet dress from the basegame (it will replace the dresses' texture for both teens and adults). You can only have ONE default replacement for bodydressformaltrumpet in your downloads folder at a time! If you already have one, either replace it with mine or download my custom versions of the dress.
  • AF_dress.rar and TF_dress.rar is a custom, non-default version of the dress. Both rars contains 2 files, the pink and purple dress. "AF_dress.rar" contains the dress for adult females, and "TF_dress.rar" for teens.

This is my first creation so if you notice any mistakes, please let me know and I'll fix it asap!

Great job, I love what you did with the shoes! <3 The dresses look a lot more wearable and realistic now. Plus it was so thoughtful of you to have both default and non-default versions, thank you for sharing

I do like this much better than the original. I will probably use it now that it isn't so silly looking. Thanks!

Beautiful work, loves what you did with this non default and all your default replacements, simply excellent.

From now on I'm just a lurker, the sad truth about the Orwellian status of the sims community is not "off-topic" neither is "politics".

I quite like the original, but these are gorgeous too so thank you! Suddenly I find myself needing to find a Sim that wants to get married in a beautiful baby pink gown
