hello everyone
this is a dress that is worn by a character named Sophie in the anime movie howl's moving castle.
i made two versions one with and one with out an apron.
i made this for someone, and i haven't seen the movie my self, so i hope this looks ok to anyone who has seen it. i think it would look very nice on a victorian sim as well.
i would like to thank All About Style for the beautiful mesh (which is included ).

i hope you all like them

Thank you for making this! I have a Sophie Sim, but I didn't have a decent-looking outfit for her. Now I do! The best part is that this dress can be used for other Sims besides Sophie. All of your creations are fabulous. Thanks again!!

I don't watch anime (I don't dislike it... I just don't watch it. ;D), so I don't know which dress it is supposed to resemble, but I absolutely love it in any case. I don't play Victorian-era sims, but one of them will definitely be wearing this one in the wintertime... she reminds me a bit of Alice in Wonderland all grown up.

to be honest i hadn't planned on making more from the movie, but i will just say we will see for now, because i might feel like making more after i watch the movie, i never know what i will feel like making so it is a possibility.

Wow! What a beautiful dress! Plain and yet very becoming! Thank you!

Oh, when you watch the movie, you'll fall in love with it! It's very lively, enchanting, and beautiful! I'm certain when you see Howl you'll be drawn to his clothes. He's a very romantic dresser! And his little boy apprentice, I find him so adorable! I love that you made this dress, thank you!

Pretty dress.
Did you know the movie is based on a book?

I'd reccomend reading the book, too.
There's a sequel to the book called 'Castle in the Air'
I liked both books, and the movie.

...But yeah, about the dress. I can't download it.
It says there's an 'unexpected end' to the file, or it might be corrupt.

Any idea what I can do to fix that?

hi Liros
i think when it says that you just need to try downloading it again later, i have had people tell me that, and then later say that it worked fine, so that would be my advice.

and i have heard that the movie was based on a book yes, i did finally see the movie and liked it very much

I love this so much! The dress is beautiful; I love it's simple but appealing look, and Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorite movies ever. =)
I also love all the detail in this; usually anime sims lack any detail in texture, but this certainly breaks the mold in that area!
