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.
The House Dress

The husband has left for work and the kids have gone off to school! Before you head out to the stores, there's some house work to be done! Every good house wife has a house dress to throw on when cleaning up. You wouldn't want to ruin your good shopping dress would you?

The house dress is a simple zip-up frock. It's loose fitting and almost formless, to give that domestic look!

There are three channels: Dress, collar/sleeve/pocket trim/hem and pockets/sleeve buttons.

The dress can be found in everyday, sleepwear and athletic*.

The House Shoes

No matter what you're doing you can't just wear anything old thing around the house! A good 50s housewife prefers to look classy even while cleaning. So what better to go with a house dress than house shoes?

These plain dress shoes are just that...plain. The low heeled leather slip-ons are worn in just right to point where it feels like walking on air. Wearing these, your sim ladies can vacuum and cook in style!

The shoes are a reshape of EA's heeled loafers, made to have smaller feet and a rounder toe. They have two channels: main shoe and heel.

The shoes are found in everyday, formal and athletic*.


All items have custom thumbnails for easy identification in CAS.

Everything is for adult/YA females! Elder and Teen versions coming at a later date.

All meshes have proper morph states and have been fully tested with EA sliders, slider hacks and custom sliders.

*Why athletic you ask? I intended for this collection to be a complete A-Z set for my sims and the house dress was going to "fake" as the athletic outfit. These are not set for random townie use so you don't have to worry about game generated sims swimming in shoes or something silly like that.

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.
