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.

Swishy Skirt with Boots...

I was looking through the clothes in the H&M stuff and saw a horrible outfit which basically looks like a sack with some elastic and buttons but that somehow had ended up with the cutest set of boots. I just had to rescue those adorable boots from that awful outfit, so I decided a fun little skirt would be just the thing.

The Mesh: This is a bottom only mesh, so it only works as Everyday/Casual clothing. It has a fat morph and bump maps. The skirt has a nice length, ending just above the knee with a very pretty rippled shape, and is paired with some seriously cute heeled boots.

The Recolours: I've made a set of 10 recolours - six solids and four prints. I've rarred the two sets separately in case you just want one set, or you can grab both. They're set up to work for adults and young adults.
  • Black Skirt with Black Boots
  • Red Skirt with Black Boots
  • Pink Skirt with Black Boots
  • Turquoise Skirt with Brown Boots
  • Cream Skirt with Brown Boots
  • Green Skirt with Fuchsia Boots (Rose Campion)
  • Pink Leopard Skirt with Black Boots
  • Pastel Peacock Skirt with Blue Boots
  • Autumn Swirl Skirt with Brown Boots
  • Spring Swirl Skirt with Green Boots

Make sure to grab the mesh and at least one of the recolours for this to work in your game.

As always, everything is clearly labeled so you can remove anything you don't want.

Known Issues:

Due to the way the top of the skirt had to be constructed, it may tend to be a little more stiff kind of toward the belly and hips than other meshes - not really too bad, just a bit. When recolouring in Body Shop textures may appear distorted - hit F6 to pop the arms up and you'll see they're not... it just tends to stretch a bit between the legs but not really any more so than other similarly-constructed meshes in-game.

Credits/Thanks:

Thanks to Wes_h for the Unimesh plugin and all his other wonderful plugins that make meshing an absolute dream now. Thanks to Quaxi and everyone else who has contributed to the development of SimPE. Thanks to Tiggerypum for everything she has taught me about meshing. Thanks also to Nouk for input and moral support and corruption. And as always, a huge thanks to the rest of the MTS2 staff, especially Delphy, for giving me such a cool place to learn how to make pretty things for pixel dollies.

Model Credits:

The model is my sim Olivia's facial sculpt with a serious makeover to make her into a sim I call Rose in my game now... using Glance skin, some freckles by Alkaloid, lipstick and liner by Bruno, eyes by Barcelonista, brows by Helaene, and hair by XM Sims.

The shirts pictured are not included - but they're also by me. You can get 'em under my profile - Fanseefem stuffs ftw!

Just wondering--are you planning to make a pregnant morph for this? I love it so much, I'd like to be able to have my preggers sims to be able to wear it!

I adore this skirt and all my sims are wearing it now. Any chance of a teen conversion?

I think we should start a campaign to get you a knighthood. Really, we should.

I LOVE THESE SO MUCH!

These are so awsome! Would it be possible to make a teen version? After all, they have the horrible sack with elastic and buttons outfit too and I know some of my teen sims who it would look fablous on.

Thank you so much for giving us more choices of modest clothes. I commend you for your stance, and they still look pretty to boot. ^_^
