After my first attempt at making anything for The Sims, I present this lovely 4 channel Burberry-like plaid pattern. It can be found in the fabrics section in game.
It was made using Delphi's Pattern Packager and with a lot of help from the sweet tutorial by HystericalParoxsym. Thanks!


I have added two different sized versions of the pattern that more closely resemble the actual Burberry plaid design. The two new patterns have a single red line rather than two. They can also be found under Fabrics

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks, it's lovely!

(But the install directions are for Sims 2 files.)

The other day I decided to make a plaid pattern. This Burberry one was the first decent looking style I found, so I made the pattern. I had no idea that the pattern had a specific name or that Burberry was a designer. After I finished it, my wife saw the pattern on the screen and said "Oh, Burberry". I said "This pattern has a name?". She looked disappointed in my lack of knowledge and then she educated me. I also found out from another member here that I have an extra red line in there. So, sometime within the next few weeks I'll try to sit down and make a few other versions of it. One with the proper design, maybe a diagonal version, and smaller versions.

Thank you all for your thanks and comments!

This looks great. But where is it in the game? I placed the package file in mods/packages directory. I have resource.cng in the root directory of The Sims 3. (default). But when I select furniture, this does not show up. Also in the game launcher, it shows installed content and this pattern does not show up. Only my 3 downloaded lots do. Am I missing something? Thanks!

It's a pattern, so it won't be in furniture. If you go into build or buy mode and click on the paint palette icon, it'll bring up pattern options for whatever object you select. This pattern is under Fabrics in that menu. You can also do the same thing with clothing when creating sims.
