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.
So... this month's theme is "vintage". According to the guidelines, that's anything from the 1950s through the 1980s. I guess that makes me vintage!

Anyway, I racked my brain to try to figure out what to make for my little Sims. I've already made tie-dye outfits and poodle skirts. Eventually, I turned to the Internet and looked up some old catalogs from the decades in question. Let me just say that I'm glad I wasn't a little boy in the 1960s and '70s. Yikes! Now my poor Sims are walking around looking like they raided their grandfather's closet, with their tacky shirts, pleated pants, and sensible shoes. But, hey... it's "vintage", right?

These outfits come in nine colours. They're basically an age conversion of one of the outfits from FreeTime, but I didn't include the three original colours in this set (so if your Sims want to match with their grandpa, they're out of luck).

The outfits use a new mesh, which is included. It has a working fat morph (see the little kid in the brownish plaid shirt and round glasses, above). They're set as Everyday. No EPs or SPs are required.
