Christmas Jammies Challenge

What do your sims wear when they wake up Christmas morning?gift

The SO staff challenges you to make some jammies or nighties for your sims to wear while they're checking out the contents of their Christmas stockings. (When you're deciding how naughty or nice, remember that this is a family-friendly forum. rolleyes )

If you've never made a skin, but would like to try this challenge, here is a 'nightie blank' bmp for a little girl. The blank is white and shaded.

Recolour or retexture the nighty as you like, or add some pretty trim, to make a nightgown for a little girl to wear as she hangs her stocking by the fireplace.

Then post a jgp of your nighty (game screenshot or preview picture from SimPose or SimShow).

If you'd like to share the nighty you made, add a zip containing a game ready bmp for each skin tone(256x256 pixels, 8 bit/indexed mode colour depth) and a text file telling who made the bmp, and any other information you'd like to add.

If you're new to skinning, check out the Beginner's Skin Recolour Tutorial here:
http://www.simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=755.

For instructions on removing the red from the bmp to see the skin tone of your choice, read this quick tutorial:

Adding Skintones Tutorial : http://www.simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?t=774

To use a skin bmp made from the blank as buyable sleepwear, you will need the L401fc mesh, which I have renamed to make it mac friendly. It will also work on a pc. The original mesh was made by jacki or jackwolfsims http://jws.hauns.de/

Christmas textures to inspire you:

Some of these are seamless textures; some are fabric swatches.

Yikes! looks like me 2nd too - I wanted to use the little girl nighty and found it difficult to make something that didn't look like a fancy dress! This skin is a rather fancy nighty - it reminds me a little of a christmas cracker laugh

Here's my selection. The outfit come in only the skin tones shown but with the template it will be easy to put them on the other tones.
