I want to thank Karanta (Kerstin Weihe) for first telling me how to fit clothes to G2 characters such as Sidney and Simon by using the AddDeformers command. I had first tried to use the Conform To command after I changed a pose and I saw "poke-thru's"; it would not work once I had changed the pose from the standard pose.
The following are the steps I used to create well fitting clothes for Sidney using the AddDeformers command.
Step 1 - Once Sidney is in the scene, dress her as you like.
Step 2 - Initially use the Conform To command (figure>conform to).
Step 3 - Create a new pose. Notice how Sidney's skin is poking through the fabric.
Step 4 - Right click on the following part of the Library Palette to be able to access the AddDeformers command for Sidney G2.
Step 5 - Then select the following: Pose>Poser 7>SidneyG2.
Step 6 - Now you will see a selection called AddDeformers. Select the piece of clothing and double click on the AddDeformers' icon on the Library Palette. The top will fit properly.
The AddDeformers command fixed the "poke-thru's".
I was interested to see how Sidney differed from Jessi in reference to using the AddDeformers command for fitting clothes so I put them side by side in Poser 7. Notice the difference.
Again, I want to thank Karanta a lot for pointing me in the right direction.
