I wish I was joking. I have this skirt that I want to make it look more like a skirt using the cloth simulation thing but instead of pulling it downwards and giving it some folds, it pulls it upwards and is spiky. Using the cloth presets (silk, leather, etc) don't really change anything. I tried erasing the weight paint at the top and it still didn't work. I'm wondering if some of the settings I used is making it this way?
EDIT: Added screenshots of the geometry
