Here's a ballerina tutu to go along with the new ballet barre that comes with Free Time (though Free Time is not required to use it). I've seen several tutus for adults, but no classical tutu styles for children, so I'm releasing a newer, cleaned up, morphed version of one of my very first mesh projects. Actually, it's the project that finally got me to read the tutorials and learn how to mesh.

The body consists of a spandex leotard and tights, while the skirt is tulle. I decided that Sim kids are too young to dance en pointe, so they wear flat ballet slippers.

I categorized the tutu as both everyday wear and athletic wear. I know it drives people nuts sometimes, but bodyshop does not recognize athletic wear for children. Had I left the tutu categorized as athletic wear only, recoloring would be much more complicated. You can recategorize it with Wardrobe Wrangler if you don't plan to do recolors ever.

Since texturing is one of my weakest points, please feel free to recolor in accordance with the policy below.


1. Feel free to upload in sim packages, just provide some credit: a link back to the original, include the readme, or just a shoutout. Whatever works.

2. Feel free to recolor, just give me credit for the mesh.

3. Don't claim credit for my work.

4a. Have any problems with the mesh? Drop me a pm at MTS2 or S2C (under MireilleContesse) and I'll see if I can fix it, time willing. It will be harder to reach me in the fall and spring since I'll be busy with school.

4b. I cannot fix problems with the downloading of these files. That is likely an MTS2 issue - unless they work for no one. Sometimes, the site goes bonkers and you have to wait a while to download a non-corrupted copy of the files. It's happened to me before too. Unfortunately, I cannot personally send a file set to everyone this happens to. It's way too time consuming for someone as lazy as I am

4c. I also won't take requests to re-upload in a number of different file compression formats for the same reason given above. It's just gonna be zip format, folks. That's the one that works for pretty much everyone.

Free. It's a very important word. Do not upload this mesh or these recolors to any pay site in any form. Sites that take 100% voluntary donations (meaning you can still download objects without being required to pay anything) are ok. Seriously. Free only.
