This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Hey guys, long time no see!

I have made a set of crop tops, eliminating (as best I could) those horrible rhinestone bows that came on all of them. This is one of my favourite meshes in the Sims 4, probably due to my unhealthy love for crop tops in real life. However, I found them completely unusable due to the ugly bows. These are really cute as an everyday top, or even as something comfy to wear to bed.
I removed the bows in the texture, and in the specular map so it doesn't shine. I haven't figured out how to get rid of the stones in the bumpmap yet, and I haven't seen any other recolours for this mesh that have either. It's not overly noticeable once you start playing.

I made a set of three really simple pastel recolours in white, pink and turquoise. Additionally, I have also recreated to the best of my ability the butterfly shirt from Sims and Sims Bustin Out on console. I played these games a LOT as a kid and when I saw the yellow bow crop top I was instantly reminded of it. I was only going to create the butterfly shirt, but I thought it might not be as appealling to other people who might not share my nostalgia. I also included the lime and blue shirt without the butterfly.

All textures were made from Maxis textures. The butterfly was half a mix of reference images and my own drawing. These should show up for all females teen and above, thanks to them all sharing the same meshes. They can be found as recolours of the original bow shirt. They have corresponding colour swatches except for the butterfly shirt which has the ColourMagic default swatch. I couldn't get my custom one to work!

I plan on making more recolours of this mesh, and also fixing the bumpmap when all the creating issues have been smoothed out. If you guys have any suggestions for colours and patterns, let me know!
