I’m in the process of creating a Beth Harmon sim from The Queen’s Gambit and needed some good 60s outfits for her. Since I couldn’t find anything close enough to the outfits in the show, I decided to create some myself.

This is a simple mod dress, inspired by the dress Beth wears in Paris in episode 6. I’ve also included two other variations of the mod dress, to give all the vintage sims a bit of variety.

Info
  • For females, teen-elders
  • It can be found in full body outfits under Everyday, Formal and Career. It is not enabled for random
  • Maternity enabled for all ages, teen-elder
  • The dress comes with 3 different presets, all with different RGB masks (see pictures for reference). Preset 1 has 2 recolourable channels, preset 2 has 3 channels, and preset 3 has 4 channels.
  • The dress has custom thumbnails

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.
