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.
Alpha Skirt for Teens

This mesh is full of possibilities! My recolors show a few of them, but think of what *you* could do! Please recolor.
(Want to make your own alpha mesh? Read my tutorial.)
Part of the Maxis match clothing project at Maxis Dreams.

See sims walk, run, sit, and dance in this skirt!
I adjusted the mesh and bone weights as much as I could to reduce clipping. The long skirts still have a little bit, briefly, at the calf when walking, but don't worry, on the very long skirts, I painted the calves and up skirt color, so you won't see those small flashes of skin.

Polygon Count 1640
The poly count is due to the double layered alpha skirt and complete legs.
However, it is about the same as a Maxis top, so should not be a problem.
Has fat morph, is bump mapped. Files shrunk with jfade's Compressorizer.

Matching Shirts - there's some new shirts in posts #4 and #6, Maxis recolors
