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.

Hello all,

This is just a little something that I have been working on for some time now, and thanks to IgnorantBliss it finally works correctly.

This is just the drapery that you see under the beds, sims can NOT sleep or sit on it. You just have to place it under a bed as decoration. It is cloned using Echo's rug as a base mesh but since this is a new mesh you don't need to download anything else.

These two meshes are linked to use the same textures as the beds, so no matter what bedding you want to match, the ruffle can be changed by using the swatch tool. Because the meshes use all Maxis bedding textures as well as custom made, they have no textures in the package and can not recolored in the normal way.

Low counts, Poly = 514, Vert = 436 for both sizes.

They are catagorized to appear in Decorative > Misc for 50§ each.

Please do not take and post on pay sites, anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Enjoy, Kathy

Thanks to everyone who made creating for TS2 possible.

Just to break the monotamy of the thank yous, what the heck is a dust ruffle for?

This idea is great, and since the object is linked to the bedsheet it's more than great.
Good work.

This is great! Not just a nice shape, but the fact that it uses bedding textures we already have (or have made!) makes it twice as special.

To hide the dust and other junk you sweep under your bed, of course.

Doesn't every bed need that? sure it does. Thank you!

I finally got a chance to use the bed skirt and I had to come back and say.
Thank you again they are absolutely wonderful. I don’t think I truly understood, they match all of the beds that I have!!! This is truly ingenious! Wouldn’t it be great to have that for the curtains too! AMAZING!!!!
