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.

Ni hao everyone!

Here I am (omg, not me again!) and this time I present to you a "Mandarin Style" jacket for female Sims! I made it to match my AniMe Hair, but it looked so good with any other style that I decide to share it
I was so tired of photoskinned clothes for Sims 3, most of them looked like flat poorly painted and over-contrasted body art with lots of non-recolorable black spots So I promised myself that I would create only 3D looking clothing despite how long it may take to mesh it and do textures by hand

- This top is for females, teen to adult.
- Available in everyday, formal, athletic, sleepwear and swimwear categories.
- 4 recolorable channels: shirt, jacket, stripes on jacket and the buttons.
- Morphed.
- Breast slider capable (both LN and Johna's Slider Pack).
- Teens have different mesh than adults to fit their thinner and smaller bodies.
- All styles shown below are included.
- It's not a conversion from Sims 2 Apartment Life jacket, it's a new mesh.
- No male version will be made.
- Mandarin, orange, whatever...


Adult


Teen

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.

First off, the jacket is really cool! Thank you very much for making it!
And second - could u make a more western looking one with buttons instead the chinese thingies? I think the game lacks of such a decent bolero in western style too, if im not mistaken.

I am completely with you on preferring clothes that are not photo-skinned. I am not a mesher but I think if someone wants to make clothing for the sims they should put a little more effort into it. Besides, I think photo-skinned clothes just look awkward next to the game content. But this...this is pretty! I'll have to change the categories though. As much as I love it, I can only have it in everyday and formal. ^_~ Thanks for sharing! I look forward to seeing more of your work.

This is very professionally well done. I'm definitely with you on the hand painting part (as I'm not a fan of Photoshopped sim clothing) . Pretty please keep it coming as I love hand painted sim clothes.
