This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
First of all, a BIG thank you to flyingpigeon for creating the mesh. I mentioned that I might like a more close-fitting version of his dress tops and he went and made a lovely, versatile mesh, which is just awesome. Thank you, FP! :D

Kind of patterned off an old mini-dress I had, I present my rather simple but versatile jeweltoned recolours, a soft suede fabric with cream lace edging 'round the bottom, satin ribbon detailing around the bodice, and piping around the neckline. I did it originally in the green, but then I decided it'd be beautiful in a range, so I did jeweltones. The files are labeled by colour if you only want a particular one, though I'm including all together in the rar. I like naming things jeweltones, so I leave it up to you and your lapidary skills to figure out which is which.

Thanks to:
Flyingpigeon, for the lovely mesh.
The Dresden Dolls, for fueling my creation spree.

HP!! These are so awesome. They look much better in-game than they did in bodyshop (and it looked awesome in bodyshop). Thank you so much, these are great! I like the green one most, but they are all great. Thank you again. :D

Erm, Mommy2CelesteHope, these are just recolours - I didn't make the original mesh - flyingpigeon did. In addition, this being just a top, it can't function as maternity wear - only full-body outfits work for maternity.

Yep. It does. Didn't know that at the time. Know that now. Crashes the game when you go to buy a community lot. Also isn't available anymore. These are left here in case you wanna use it for pics or whatever, and you happen to have the mesh - or for people to use the textures for something else if they want. *shrug*

I had these before, and they were beautiful. I've since had to delete all my downloads and start from scratch, and it's sad to know I can't get these again. =/

I apparently missed the bit about the lack of meshes. Boo. Now I know why I had random beige tanktops in my game. Oh well.

They were beautiful
