It took me a while to learn this but I finally got the chance to default these full-of-Maxis-fug sweaters with some that I have always really liked!

Amaryll separated these sweaters from an AL outfit and then supplied extra recolours over on GoS several years ago, but they're still totally gorgeous, and a perfect update to the old-school BG Maxis sweater.

And just in case you can't remember which sweaters I'm talking about, here is a guide:

As always, you can only have one default replacement, so if you'd like to use these, you must remove any prior default replacements for the "aftopcrewneckcollarshirt".

Additional Credits:
-Amaryll for the sweater mesh and recolours (downloadable as custom on GoS).
-Mooglesims for the awesome, easy-to-understand tutorial I used to learn how to do this.
-Sims2Defaults directory for all the excellent stuff I've found to replace all the fug in my game!
-Garden of Shadows for so many awesome creators that have reconfirmed my love for this game!
-MTS for being a cornerstone of the Sims downloading community for so many years now, and hopefully years to come.

I checked the file, and it is enabled for YA.

Doesn't show up for me. Just makes their upper bodies invisible. :/
