I have been trying to stitch a basic t-shirt using two separate meshes (back and front patterns).

Front pattern

Back pattern

I tried converting these curves into meshes and then filled them.

After that I extruded one of the meshes and joined it to the other to form the 'threads'.

Before stitching

Upon running the cloth simulation the model is giving weird results where the threads are breaking instead of being sewed even though the sewing feature was on.

enter image description here

What am I doing wrong and how do I correct it?

    $\begingroup$ How have you filled the front and back outlines? It looks like they are ngons. This does not work because it lacks the geometry to bend. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I also think ngons in the front and back outlines are causing this problem, but I have filled the outlines and do not know how to remove the ngons. $\endgroup$ Commented May 8, 2022 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ I would start with a plane and subdivide it a few times (but keep it as low-poly as you can). Then edit this quad mesh and remove faces that you don't need to get the shape you want. Here's an example: blender.stackexchange.com/q/247587/107598 $\endgroup$
