Ooh these are lovely, Cat! Such an improvement over the originals. I must admit, I don't play elders at all, but you're really tempting me with all your nice clothes for them.

What a great improvement you've made to the mesh, also like your retexture of the skirt part, that looks much nicer too plus lines up better. Also love the extra colours you've provided. Love your work as always

Thank you, everyone, for the comments! I didn't expect this to get even one or two, since elder apparel is a "niche market", and these aren't super fancy. Really glad you all like it. :D

Very nice! I actually play the game, so my sims become elders eventually. I want them to look pretty in that stage of life, too.

Thank you for making Maxis-wearing grannies look less like they are wearing a sack.
