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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Fanseefem Project:

The Fanseefem project is my effort to bring normal clothes to our adult female sims. Sick of high heels, dressy clothing dripping with jewelry, and a lack of nice, sensible, basic clothes for females to putter about in the garden, I've gone a bit crazy.

This is the first installment in hopefully what should be a multi-part series, attempting to provide some simple stuff that normal girls can wear every day.

Because of the scope and grandeur of this project, I do not have any plans at this time to do the same for teens. Please don't ask - I may if the mood strikes me, but I hate doing stuff over, and doing the same huge pile of stuff again is enough to drive me batty.

What's Included:

This set includes three new meshes:
  • Untuckable Top Mesh: - Close-fitting top mesh with a smooth shirt front (no underboob crease) and a smooth waistline to allow for untuckable tops.
  • Slouchypants Bottom Mesh with Boots: - Slim but comfortable fit jeans mesh with slouchy bottoms at the ankles, with nice sensible boots.
  • Slouchypants Bottom Mesh Barefoot: - Same shape as the boots version, but without the boots, so your sims can go barefoot in their new jeans.

All meshes include a fat morph that is the same size and basic shape as Maxis fat.

Updated 19 Mar 08: All meshes now include pregnant morphs so they can be used for maternity wear. You will need a hack (like Pregnancy Wear Any Outfit by Squinge) to use these as maternity wear. You only need to redownload the meshes themselves and replace your existing files in your Downloads folder with them - all recolours (mine and those made by others) will still work on these meshes without needing updates. The files have the same names as before, so just extract them to the same folder and allow them to overwrite.

This set also includes a grand total of 113 (!) recolours:

81 Untuckable Shirts (All require my Untuckable Top Mesh): These will work with any Maxis bottoms and will look as if they are tucked in - even on pants that normally show the midriff/belly with Maxis shirts. This means no more bellies showing no matter which bottoms you choose to pair them with! However, if you use them with the special untuckable recolours of the pants that I've made, you'll get a cool effect that the sim's shirt is untucked.
  • 9 Tank Tops: Well, maybe not actual tank tops. They're more like sleeveless tees.
  • 9 Tee Shirts: Like the layered tees, only with no 3/4 sleeve tee underneath.
  • 9 Longsleeve Shirts: Full wrist-length tees.

The three sets of 9 shirts listed above each come in one each of these colours:

  • 54 Layered Tees: 3/4 sleeve tee under a regular close-fitting tee in a ton of combinations of shirt and sleeve colours. See the attached pic with the many many swatches for a full list of all the combinations I did. Yeah, I know, 54 is a ton, but I -really- like layered tees.

Not all of the colour combinations of the layered tees are pictured - they're just different combinations of the same sleeve/shirt. Here are all the combinations I did:


32 Slouchy Jeans: Each of the colours of jeans comes in an untuckable and tucked version - the untuckable versions are meant to be worn with my untuckable shirts - without them they will look... well, utterly awful (takes plumber's crack to a whole new level), but the tucked versions can be worn with any shirt.
  • 16 Slouchy Jeans with Boots (Require my Slouchypants Bottom Mesh with Boots): Features a smooth waistline for proper untucking, and handmade textures - the blue-grey version is taken from pictures of my favourite set of real jeans I own. They are paired with nice comfy boots that will be great for digging in the garden or having a barbecue - see the pic for the colour of boots each set has.
  • 16 Slouchy Jeans with Bare Feet (Requires my Slouchypants Bottom Mesh Barefoot): Same shape and texture as the above, but without shoes.

Both sets of jeans come in these colours:



Absolutely everything is clearly labeled so you can remove any recolours you may not want.

It's all separates (top and bottom) so these will only show up in the everyday category. Everything works for adults and young adults.

Credits:

First and foremost, a HUGE thanks to the incredible fanseelamb. I have used her textures for the tops, in some places with a bit of recolouring/editing, but in most places taken directly from her untucked tops (and the alpha for the untucked pants from her untucked pants). And the whole idea for the untucking stuffs in the first place. Go see her profile for similar stuff for males. She was the inspiration for this project and deserves thanks and cookies. And beenz.

Big thanks also to Nouk, for talking me down when I realized I'd accidentally imported two skeletons into my main mesh file, and to Tiggerypum for everything she's taught me about meshing. And also a big thank you to the rest of the MTS2 staff (especially Delphy) for making a place where I can learn how to do cool stuff like this, and share it with all of you.

Major adoration and thanks furthermore (and especially) to Wes_H the Unimesh plugin and his new Fist of Frankensteining - it made this project doable and enjoyable. Thank you, Wes!

Model Credits:

Both models are my sims. You can get full details on all of their skins, makeup, etc., as well as download them here at MTS2:

Recolours:

I'll probably be doing more kinds of shirts for the untuckable top, and maybe more kinds of pants. I won't be doing more recolours of these particular textures. You are welcome to do so yourself, though.

If you recolour the tops or use the alpha from the pants please credit fanseelamb with a link and her name. If you recolour the jeans please credit me for the textures, and fansee for the alphas if you do more untucked colours.

Make sure to link back here to this post so people can get the mesh - do not include my mesh with your recolours.

My other normal policies still otherwise apply. Please see my profile for details on using with sim uploads and suchlike.

Meshes Required!!

Please make sure you download the meshes! Get my top mesh if you're getting ANY of the tops here, and the proper mesh for whichever set(s) of bottoms you choose - either barefoot or with boots. The meshes are separate from the recolour files (clearly labelled) and you will need to get them too for these to work in your game!

Polygon Counts:
Untuckable Shirt Top Mesh: 1204 polygons, 789 vertices (normal)
Slouchypants with Boots Bottom Mesh: 968 polygons, 758 vertices (normal)
Slouchypants Barefoot Bottom Mesh: 916 polys, 653 vertices (normal)

Most Excellent! I was particularly impressed to see the barefoot items. I was wanting some of those anyway and since I don't do clothing, I was pretty sure I never would get them.

Between you and fanseelamb my sims will look less like fashion models and more like real people. Thanks.

Oh excellent, I was off on an "ordinary clothes" rampage all last week and found plenty for men, but none for women. Glad to see it wasn't just me that was getting frustrated. These look good.

Yay... Yay.. Yay. YAY! You must be made of puppies, candy and everything sweet! I LOVE YOU! I could just kiss you (and I would if I knew where you live)!

Thank you for making this. My girls were getting so sick of the guys always strutting their fancy everyday wear and now they can get back at them.

Will name new neighborhood "HystericalLamb" and make everyone wear your fabulous clothing!

Btw, I couldn't persuade you to make untucked skirts for my girly-girls, could I? *blinks innocently* Pretty please? I would do it myself, but I'm rubbish at meshing and so on... I could shine your shoes?

divinebovine - No pregnant morph this time... I prefer full body meshes for pregnant, and the detailing on the belly of the shirts would look weird on a pregnant belly.

Uartige-Pigebarn - My shoes are already quite shiny. But yeah, I'm sorta kinda thinking about some skirts too - I wear layered gypsy skirts a lot, often with an untucked longsleeve tee over them, so I may do another round of casual stuffs, including skirts, once I get the other categories populated with a decent amount of clothing.

OMG! Thank you! You have no idea how much i am thanking you right now *presses the button untill it brakes* ..i think i was complaining of the lack of avarage clothes and the amount of highheels in the sims2 in H&M fashion Stuff stuff pack discussion on sims2community >_< i'm sorry the avarage girl does not get all dolled up like that just to sit around the house ...then got told by someone that they wear highheels everyday ...well shes more woman than i am i can tell you. It will be most pleasing if you expand on this, with teens and maybe the little girls

Simple, casual clothes with nice plain colors.
Me, I would not fill down my Downloads folder with these clothes. I prefer more realistic clothes.

Glad to hear that you don't need a personal shoe shiner. What pleases me more is that you are considering making skirts. All I have in my game is PVC-skirts and pants. BOOOOORING. Well, not the PVCs, they're just for... You know...

Aaaanyway, if you want ideas the gypsy skirts sounds really great, I haven't seen to many pretty simmefied gypsy skirts around, but I love regular and miniskirts as well. Both demin and softer textures. Maybe even with a nice pair of trainers? Most people seem to think that a girl can't wear a decent skirt without wearing heals... TSK!

Thanks again.

Geez, look at that -it's almost a novel :O

Heh, err, I'm not sure where you think the realism falls short here, Ailias. This is how a lot of real women dress - myself included. Put the blue-grey pants with the black sleeves/purple shirt layered tee and that's exactly what I'm wearing right now. Perhaps you meant dressed up and fancy rather than realistic? I figured there was enough of that already - if you prefer that stuff, you certainly have your choice.

These are great, that's pretty much all I run around in as well. Jeans and T-shirts, hiking boots in the winter. Thongs or barefoot in the summer, with my hair pulled up in a bun or a ponytail. Sometimes a nice long summer dress. I have to chase around three grandbabies everyday 6,4 and 2 plus a new on on the way. I don't have time for that girly, girl stuff anymore. lol Now all I need is more realistic make-up not so red or mauve, you know a little natural blush till the cheeks get sunburn, some mascara ok your good to go. Thank you for these.

These clothes are AWESOME HP! Thank you SO much for taking the time to make this set and do so many colors, there's something here for practically everyone's taste. I'm glad my female Sims don't have to look so overdress all the time, this is so practical for daily wear. Thank you thank you thank you!
