So, I tried something new with this one.  I think I've made the correct settings to get the dress to auto-fit to the model.  It works on my machine, but I'd love to know if it'd work on yours!

I've set the dress up with 3 texture domains, the straps, the chest/back fabric, and the skirt.  Also, as always, this is a free item, so support is limited.  If it doesn't load, let me know!  And please tag me if you use it! :D

Couple basic pose tests. Autofit works fine, I did have one explosion, but that was cloth getting trapped between body parts during the pose. A few adjustments to the pose in the timeline and all was good. If at any point the cloth is pushed into the character mesh during sim, you'll usually get a kaboom. That's the same with pretty much anything in dForce so far though.  Autofit is awesome! Thank you for another great dress.

If G3F has an upside down pose with the dress, at first it drops down as expected in the simulation, but then the dress explodes into chaos.  Had to restart Daz.

May want to try turning self-collide off, it can help in some simulations.

How do i turn self-collisiions off in Daz Studio?

Surfaces tab, click on the dress and collision will be near the bottom of the window.

Thanks, that sounds like what is happening.

Not so much hooray... The only thing I can think of is extending your timeline to make the pose take longer to reach the final position. When cloth moves too quickly from one extreme to another during the simulation explosions can happen. Was the explosion instant, or did it start to simulate for a couple frames first?

It was doing what you would expect, for being upside down, and with it almost done, it went boom!  It really does make some interesting shapes when it explodes that would make for interesting renders.  Daz gets a bit buggy from that point on, though.

Gonna try that "self collide" off setting, sosiopath1 suggested.

My other experiments had it work, for the most part, as long as it didn't reverse direction, like with a leg more than 90 degrees up.  Sounds like self-colliding.

Hide everything else in the scene and also the hair. 
This problem is not from the dress but from the DAZ itself. If you hide everything the simulation will work
as expected.

I always forget about self-collision...  D-Force doesn't play well with itself sometimes...

It automatically fits to the G3F model, nice.
