Nope, just the major. I originally created it for a Sim in my game who uses the Free Time sewing machine to sew custom clothes which she can sell in her own boutique. Since she didn't need a Fashion Design career to do that, I didn't create a career, just the major.

I'm glad you like it, though!

Ahh...I never thought to do that 'cause I never use the sewing machine! I will turn one of my unsuspecting little sims in a Susie Homemaker now though...good idea.
Thanks again! =D
