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.

Thanks all, glad you like them, I always thought Maxis beds looked unfinished. And I will see what I can do about a new curtain mesh that uses the same idea.

and if you could direct me to the bed as well I would be most greatful

All of the beds shown in my pics are from the game, 1st one is the Canopy Bed from UNI and the others are from the original TS2.

Thank you. One question. Will the dust ruffle automatically match recolors of bedspreads I have already done? I am glad you did this.

:sorry: , I didn't see your question earlier.

Yes, it will automatically match any you already have and any new ones you download or make.

I lost my recolors for the platform bed so I had to find out who made them, then find you. Now that I am here I see some other things I like.
