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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Thanks to the great BlooM at Insim, the no “inside” issue my alpha meshes had, is gone. Please re-download the mesh.
You only have to re-download the mesh and it will replace the old file, the recolors still work.

Original post
This mesh is a bottom only alpha skirt and works for both young adults & adults and hopefully all games.
I've tested it and found one issue(see below).

For creators I've prepared a "Creator Pack" which includes a basic texture(see pic) and a uv-map.

I hope it will work alright. Feel free to tell me what you think needs to be changed/improved and I'll do my best to fix it.

Hope you'll like it!

Vertices: 1144

Known issues

* When making a recolor you must copy the skirt texture onto the legs, or the legs will show when the sim walks. If anyone knows how to fix this, please, give me a hint.
* Creators might want to know that there's only one alpha.

About redistribution and recolors

* Please feel free to make recolors! You can use the boots texture all you want since it's originally made by Maxis.
* The mesh may be redistributed on personal websites with the recolor. Just give me credit and put a link to this page.
* Please don't redistribute on pay sites. If you make recolors for sites like TSR, please give me credit and put a link to this page.
* You may not use my textures in your own clothes creations.

Credits & Thanks

* HUGE THANKS to the great BlooM at Insimenator.com for helping me with the "insides" issue.
* Thanks to Tiggerypum & HystericalParoxysm for the excellent tutorials on how to make meshes.
* Thanks to Wes_h for the very helpful Milkshape plugins.
* Thanks to the creator of SimPe!
* Thanks for downloading!

This is really cute. I was looking for something of this type to make some outfits for some of my young adult sims and I get to control the length which is too great for words! Making alpha meshes is a pain, so I have great admiration for your talent and patience. Thank you so much for sharing!

I love this mesh!
I've just submitted some PVC versions.
Thank you!

I sure like these! thanks!

Only a few find the way; some don't recognize it when they do, some don't ever want to...

I love your work! Alpha skirts are so versatile...if you ever made one with platforms (chunky or not, I'm not picky) I'd be forever grateful. Either way, thank you for sharing!
