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.

I see some Sims 3 to Sims 2 conversions from time to time, and I like using some of those bits and pieces to make clothes for my Sim kids. I liked this little coat that Steffano converted for TS2... but I hated the boots. I had just the thing to go with these old-fashioned dress coats: Yuxi's boots!

When I actually got a look at the mesh, though, there were a few problems. The cuffs did a weird stretching thing over the Sim's wrists, so I fixed that (the hands will poke through the cuffs now at certain extreme angles, but I think it looks better than having the cuffs stretch all out of shape). There was no fat morph, so I had to make one of those. And, worst of all, when the Sim sat down, something in her lap rose up into a point! That didn't seem very appropriate, so I did my best to fix it. The animation looks a little sharp when the Sim walks now... but it's better than having that other problem.

Then I made my Sims some new colours for their coats. I went with darker colours, because these seem like wintry outerwear. The coats come in forest, navy, red, black, brown, and grey. I paired the coats with tights and some old-fashioned, lace-up boots. For a final touch, I did a little bit of tooling on the leather purse:




These coat outfits use a new mesh (included) that has a working fat morph (see the blond girl in the red coat, above). I've set them as Everyday and as Outerwear. No EPs or SPs are required.

Enjoy!

Always nice to have more warm clothes for chilly days. Our sims are swamped with summer stuff!

I bet some of the Victorian/Edwardian players will be falling over themselves to get at these but I have an old-fashioned family with a little girl just growing up for whom this is perfect.

Very Nice, mostly all your kids clothes are always, but I'll afraid my Sims girls are so "Hip and modern" they will refuse to wear any period clothes, unless it is Halloween times. They are spoil rotten.

I have long thought that girls got the short end of the stick when it came to warm clothes. Thanks for solving the problem.
