‘Charlotte’ Dress By Budgie2Budgie Converted for Adults.

Now you your sim’s mother can dress just like her!

I made a bustle version.

And a crinoline version.
Two of them I was able to make without the apron as well.

You can download the original dress that was made for children here at Budgie2Budgie.
You MUST download the meshes for these gowns to work, bustle, crinoline, I’m not sure why but I have a glitch where if I use a custom mesh the game wants to add the recolors to the original rather than make it stand alone.
The sim used to model is Nico Blake by EmAtSix over on the gallery.
