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.
For some reason, I almost never use the costumes in Generations on my child sims, but I thought they might be cute for toddlers, so I decided to attempt a conversion of a couple of them. It came out okay. :D

Both outfits are fully animated and work with a crawling or walking toddler. Both have some issues that are related to bone assignments. The dress will substantially sink under the floor if your toddler crawls, and your toddler's arms will go through the dress while they are sitting on the floor. The dino tail and knees will also sink into the floor if your toddler sits to play with a toy.

I also noticed while testing the dress that the toddler's index fingers are slightly warped and that the ankles leave a bit of a hole in the dress if you are looking at the toddler from behind. I wasn't entirely sure if moving body parts around to compensate was a great idea, but if I find a way to resolve the issues, I'll reupload.

The Dino Outfit is found in everyday, sleepwear, and outerwear. The Princess Gown is found in everyday and formal. Both are valid for random Sims.

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.
