Re: WOVEN BELT

The approach I would take would be to create a 100% transparent base, lay down internal lines in the braided pattern, then sew strips onto that for the actual braids. That way you would have the support structure in place, that would prevent the braided strips' meshes from intersecting or pulling th...

Re: Office dress

Here are a couple of examples of this kind of collar, and how they fit onto the bodice: https://issuu.com/mariapheks/docs/la_tecnica_dei_modelli_uomo_-_donna/184?ff= I would start with the one on the right of the screen (that open in the front), and alter the pieces so it makes that overlap and sew ...

Re: Cosplay dress

Pleated trim: As seen in both the original 2D reference image, and the cosplay muslin mockup, those are merely gathered, not pleated. Gathering is simply a longer length edge sewn to a short length (seam or edge). That will make the sewing easier for you, as pleats do take a bit of care in planning ...

Re: Cosplay dress

Cut your bow pattern as a long rectangle with pointed ends, or perhaps an elongated semi-circle. Then, just use an internal line (lay it down on the vertical center of the bow piece), and simply sew it to a shorter stretch of the center seam of the bodice. That will create the gathering effect you a...

Re: How to recreate this glue-seam technique ?

The edge piping was made before MD added it's own piping tool. (This was an **OLD** project.) Mine are just strips of cloth with pressure added to inflate them. In the current versions of MD, there is a piping tool that adds tubes like that along any seam-line or edge.

Re: How to recreate this glue-seam technique ?

Lay down internal lines in the design you want, select those lines, then apply a Folding Strength and Folding Angle. The overall stiffness of the fabric, combined with the Folding settings will produce that effect. In this example, the overall fabric is soft and drapey. The Folded internal lines imi...

Re: Stiff material for curtain rings

An alternative approach is to make a controller piece, which is frozen in place. On it place an internal line, split into multiple segments. Change the segment points to curve points to create a regular wave pattern. Sew your curtain to that line. https://scontent-sjc3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/151101...

Re: Stiff material for curtain rings

A couple of tips to help you: Don't rely on just a ring to provide structural support for an entire curtain. The weight of the curtain's fabric will be too much, as MD's cloth simulations are not like traditional 3D modeling. You have to make the curtain itself slightly different to compensate for t...

Re: Pressure doesn't work.

Are the two pattern pieces facing in the same direction? Pressure works by pushing outwards in the direction of the cloth's normals. If both pieces are oriented with their normals in the same direction, nothing will happen. You will need to rotate one of the pattern pieces so it is facing in the opp...
