Hello again everyone

today i have a rather large set of clothing, and accessories, inspired by vintage 1920s and earlier fashions. it consists of 11 dresses, 6 masks, 3 necklaces, 1 skirt, 1 bag, and 1 pair of goggles.
i worked on this set off and on for about 2 years, and originally this set was going to contain a small story, and 2 sims from that story (you may have seen it in my journal) but I'm afraid i lost my enthusiasm for finishing it. i am still very happy with this set, and wanted to share it with you even though my original vision for it never happened.

i have run out of picture space to show the completely assembled Circus outfit, but it takes all pieces shown in the picture (both masks stack to make one elaborate mask, and the accessory skirt was made to fit over the Circus Recruit dress) you can see pics of the combinations in my latest journal entry here

Oh, goodness, these are gorgeous. Just for clarification -- I don't see a mention of a mesh for The Spider's Web either as included or not included or any EP required. Does that mean it uses a mesh from the base game?

I just downloaded the Explorer and Gypsy dresses and they work fine now that I've found the right meshes, but the thumbnail hasn't come up correctly. Anyone else had this problem, or know how to fix it?

Ack! i'm so sorry Cidira, i was posting so meny links last night that i knew i was gonna miss one. the mesh for The Spiders Web dress is the same one used for the The Wanderer and the Everafter dresses. i will go fix the post now, thank you for letting me know

Sabrielle, i have no idea why the thumbnails aren't showing up, i know there is a way to refresh them, but i don't remember how off the top of my head. and the meshes for the gypsy, and explorer dresses are included.

While you didn't execute the collection as you wished, you definitely have my attention for this one! This is a very impressive set Sherabim and quite diverse really. Each dress and accessory shared is unique and intricate. While every outfit is definitely a must, I truly love The Explorer, The Spider and I Thee Wed, in addition to the explorer's satchel, goggles and the Ivy necklace. The masks are very pretty as well. My favourite of the lot is The Wanderer as I'd wear that today. Thanks for this brilliant set and may your creations continue to inspire and bring a bit of design pleasure to our Simming world.

I think the thumbnail refresh is Control+ Right Click over the icon.

The extreme attention to detail that you've paid to every single part of this is simply jaw dropping. I love everything single thing in this set. I applaud you.

Yeah, I just couldn't figure out which of the three meshes included it was... someone's posted about refreshing thumbnails below, so I'll try that. Thanks for getting back to me =]

As usual everything you make is just a pure pleasure for the eyes. I honestly wish you'd default replace the entire clothing catalog. I just adore your style and never get tired of using your creations!

BTW - Is it possible to share the Tutu? There doesn't seem to be a way to register on that site to get the mesh. The register link at the top of the page = fail and going to the forum there is no register link.

These are incredibly gorgeous Sherahbim! Thank you so much!

Is the mesh for the tutu accessory the one called Mesh-Bobby-TutuAccessory061709?
Edit: apparently not.

Everything you share is so unique and beautiful! This may not be exactly what you wanted to do, but it's more than what I expected when stopping by on MTS today :p
Thank you and keep up the good work!

That is a beautiful set. I could even see it working with some of my elves. Thank you.

For the Bird of Paradise masks the textures are missing in your set.

Then for The Wanderer, EverAfter and TheSpidersWeb the correct mesh is Yana_Mesh19_FA.

Thanks for correcting.

I almost never post @ MTS (too busy) but happened to be passing through today, and had to stop in to say how amazing and beautiful these are. Your work is the sort of quality of design that I would love to be able to do (sadly I am nowhere near that talented!).

It's a pity more creators don't allow their meshes to be distributed, I can understand the reasons why not, but it does make for problems - especially when they're tucked away in forums and whatnot. Still, as I think a couple of others have already said, it is well worth the effort! I haven't played The Sims 2 in over 7 years but I'm almost tempted to download these just for the reassurance of knowing I have them lol!
