Clothing Tool/Spring Controllers/Material World-Offset Question

Hi all,

I have a character with a skirt and I’m trying to reach an effect like this:

I’ve tried numerous avenues with no great success at reproduction - does anyone have experience here who could share their knowledge?

I spent a day or two reading the documentation for various techniques. I’m feeling it may just be very particular settings with the clothing tool…

Any help appreciated, thanks for your time!
