MESH - preteens in jeans!

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.
Here are two new body meshes that will allow your preteens to mix and match their everyday wear - one top mesh, one bottom mesh. Along with the top and bottom meshes I have included in the zip file 15 modfied Maxis skins (some recolors) - there are 3 pairs of jeans and 12 tops - to get you started, but feel free to post your own recolors.

If, like me, you are a fan of faeriegurl's beautiful preteen meshes then I hope you like this addition to the set.

I couldn't have made these meshes without the info available on this site - biggest thanks of all to Brianna for her clothing mesh tutorial, also to faeriegurl for getting the whole preteen thing started.

Please note - you have to match a preteen bottom mesh with a preteen top mesh - if you combine either with standard teen meshes you get an ugly gap round the waist.

I don't like them... I LOVE THEM!
Thanks Nicvncnt (and Faeriegurl).
Cchase05, if you use the "Search" button in the Downloads, and search for "pre teen" or "less curvy teen" you will find more. Remember these are all clothing meshes, not a new body style...
07-09-05: I have just tested some of these many combinations and they look fabulous.
Thanks again, Nicvncnt.

They are very nice jeans and it would be great if they were available for the preteens too, but wouldn't it be more appropriate to ask Helaene as they are her work?

I don't feel it would be right for me to modify her work without permission.

Unfortunately there is no preteen age group in the game, however these meshes, and the others that faeriegurl has made, can be used to give your teen sims a younger or skinnier appearance for the early part of their teenage life stage.

I have added links to faeriegurl's preteen meshes in my original post in case you don't have them already.

There is no actual Pre-Teen stage in the game but you can make teens look like preteens with clothing meshes that get rid of all that teen curviness.

Hi nicvncnt,

Thank you for your two preteen MESHES. They look real good.

I was just wondering if it was possible to have only one Mesh combining the two ?

Thanks

Can anyone turn this preteen mesh into an adult mesh? I'd like to put an adult gymnast in my game. Can anyone make some gymnast workout clothes for this mesh?

Alright, so the preteen body-shape will become a teen bodyshape part-way through the teen stage?
