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 must say First and Foremost, I have the absolute most thankful and gracious admiration for all the clothing meshers and texturers out there! It surely is NOT easy to do! I had a very easy time making meshes for nails, making tattoos, makeup, default and even non-default eyes, but when it came to clothing, I didn't get the concept very well, and failed many times over and over. However, after much reading and practice I am very proud to present this 50s inspired dress!

Dress Information
  • Young Adult and Adult ONLY
  • Base Game Compatiable
  • Supports all morph states and sliders.
  • Custom CAS Thumbnails
This dress includes FOUR recolorable channels.
  • Top
  • Waist Band
  • Skirt
  • Line Across Skirt

The Custom CAS Thumbnails look Like This:


You can find this dress in the following categories:
  • Everyday
  • Formal
  • Career

I made it so these tops are NOT made for random. So you will NOT see random sims wearing them!

This is the dress this wonderful creation was inspired by:


Hope you all enjoy!

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.

Thank you for your feed back, =) I actually have began working a longer version, but it will be some time before I am fully 100% happy with it.

Also I would like to point out that in the description I said the "real dress" was an inspiration for this one, not a reference =)

I really like this short dress! I can think of some many ways to color it. I am, however, anxious to see the longer one as well. I would like my older (not teen) sims to have some really nice clothing that is not too short and this one could really be great.
Everything that came with the game is a belly showing mini dress. <sigh>

I am so happy you like it! =D I totally know what you mean about the belly showing mini dresses lol! Also many of the T-shirts that came with the game are the same way =3 ... I will have to def keep in mind to make some classy things for the older Sims, seems that is lacking =)

I hadn't thought about that really. However, now that I do, I think it would be a brilliant idea!

Yeah, these are way too short to be anything 50's. But cute, so thanks

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

Thank you =)

I would also like to point out it isn't to short to be 50s as you see here: This is from the 50s =)

Which is a very cute flirty dress, which is what mine is =)

I don't normally comment on downloads, but I just had to tell you what a wonderful job I think you did, and throw my vote in with those requesting both a teen version and a longer adult version. I can see a couple of my teen girls wearing this to prom...and I think a longer version would make for a crazy versatile everyday kind of dress.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

May be with EA releasing The Sims 3 70's, 80's and 90's Stuff Pack, some creators on here should get together and create a 40's, 50's and 60's Pack of their own? Just a thought!

I have a retro sims blog -- this is adorable!
I have a retro blog (SepiaSims on tumblr) & as a 50's crazed enthusiast, I have to say -- this is just an adorable, flirty, lolita style dress!

I too would LOVE a longer version. I'm always on the lookout for longer dresses/skirts for my sim dollies. EA doesn't make enough.
Again, great job and thank-you so much for sharing your creativity with us! Excited and anxiously awaiting the longer version

Great job.. However. That dress is waaaayyyy too short for the 50's inspiration. It's more like a late 60's 70's dress length. Unless you are referring to the full skirt aspect. (Better wear shorts under that skimpy dress,Marilyn!!) lol
