This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

By now you already know the historical background of these clothes, so I’m not going to repeat them.
As I said before I did not make an history with these pictures, but I guess you can make one yourself just by looking at them…

Looks like the sisters are about to leave for the ball… mother is sure hopping they get nice callers. It is really expensive to keep two girls with a widow’s income.

Hope you like them, and remember I just love comments ! :o)

NOTE: Added extra zip, this one with the mesh, as it seems to be a problem with Divino's site

It's quite a surprise, especially because I almost didn't upload these...

You are quite right about the blue dress. I did try my best to overcome that, but the mesh is so stretched in the bottom that I could not make any better. That's one of the reasons why I thought I wouldn't upload them.
I'm still very new at Photoshop - only began working with it two months ago - so I'm hopping that in the future I'll be able to get around the meshes details.

HEy there look where do you get the mesh of that bluedress? please tell me!!! i realy want to know

I guess I'm late for this, but while I'm at it... Well, the dresses are lovely
the only little nitpick I have to say is, the blue dress seems more late eighteenth century with a very wide pannier (which wasn't common back then).

But the others are hit-on. I'll be downloading them all, thanks!
