Description
===========
This mod adds two of the most beautiful formal dresses ever made for Oblivion to Fallout 3: Flonne and Gizmodian's Fantabulous Dress and Terry Malick's Ball Gown, and also a shorter version of Terry's Ball Gown for less formal occasions. It also adds opera gloves and short gloves that match the main colours of the dresses.

You can find the dresses in a wardrobe in Tenpenny Apartments (see screnshot for the location). The gloves are in a cabinet next to the wardrobe. I've added the wardrobe and the cabinet to both versions of Tenpenny Towers, so you should be able to find it irrespective of the decission you've made regarding Tenpenny's quest.

You can repair all the dresses and gloves using any of the other dresses, the gloves or any of the normal clothing (prewar, spring or business clothes) you can find in Fallout.

The default version of the dresses has some clipping in certain poses. If you don't like that, you can use the "No legs patch" that replaces the default meshes with ones that have no legs under the skirt, and then show no clipping.

The dresses are made for Dimon's Type 3 body.
