I've tried various techniques of attaching planes with different cloth physics settings together, but so far have not achieved the hoped for result. Straight linking overwrites the settings of one sample with the other. Parenting/using hooks at most leads to a wildly extending isthmus of cloth and usually to two pieces linked by a dotted line fading into the depths of BlenderSpace. I've even tried linking one mesh of one type to a narrow strip of another, itself linked by sewing 'threads' to the other cloth mesh set up with different settings. Can anybody suggest a solution? Adding a thickness mod? Applying empties and hooks at every vertex? Turning back around three times and spitting?
