This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description 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.
I was inspired to make this dress when I was trying to make something completely different, and I realized that I could make a bubble skirt dress for my little Sim girls. I also learned how to make a UV map from scratch (and I hope I never have to do that again). Anyway, here is the result of hours of trial and error and pulling vertices every which way on a UV map.

The dress comes in eight colours: blue, white, peach, green, yellow, pink, aqua, and lavender. Each dress comes with white t-strap shoes. I've set these as Everyday and Formal (because they'd be pretty at a wedding).



The new mesh has a working fat morph. No EPs are required.

Enjoy!
