I have a character I am trying to clothe and I've done it by duplicating part of the character and modeling it after that, and by cloth sewing and with both I get the cloth sucking into the mesh or pulling itself upwards so far it doesn't cover the body anymore. The clothing mesh isn't parented to any rig or other mesh that I can think of.
here are the pictures of it in order from when it starts.
and the cloth never comes back down it just floats in air. Any ideas?
