I Need Help with Pattern/Physics For This Dress

Post by jislvtt »

Hello, I'm kinda a newbie at Marvelous Designer and I was wondering if it is possible to make a droopy neckline dress like this image. If you know how can you please provide a pattern and/or stimulation property settings?

The link doesn't point to any specific image, just a collection of various images on Pinterest.
From your description, perhaps you mean something like:

or this;

In general, when you have more draping, or folds, than normal, you have to have extra fabric.

Yes! I'm sorry the link didn't work. I don't really know how to navigate forums well, but I see the patterns you linked, and I'm still a little confused on how I would go about it in marvelous designer. Do cut the internal lines after I draw them on? idk how I go about making them fold over like that.

You won't need internal lines, but you will have to do some adjustments.
First, pick a soft fabric preset for the front pattern. You want something that will drape naturally. Then play a bit with the Details of the fabric Properties, to improve the drape.
Second, turn the Grainline 45 degrees. This puts the pattern 'on the bias', and adds to the draping ability of the cloth. You can do this roughly using the Graphics control and click on the grainline indicator. Then fine-tune the amount in the pattern's Property window.
Last, lower the Particle Distance settings. Do this LAST, as dropping the PD will greatly increase the mesh density and slow down your simulation. Do this because the denser mesh will give smoother folds.

Here is a demonstration image of these points:

Compare the patterns to the ones I previously posted. There are some differences, but the concept is the same. The further apart the shoulder seams are on the front pattern, will make the draping fall lower on the bosom of the avatar.
