Okay if the below doesn't help then get in touch. The big psp users here are myself and Localhero, although I'm sure there are others. My email address is juvenilemike at hotmail dot com.
I'm not 100% sure of what you mean, but I think you want to extend some clothing.
In my Jean Grey pict I had to create trousers from hot pants, and a vest top from a bikini. The pict is here
Here's how I did it.
I started by extending the top down past her rib-cage, and putting legs on the trousers. It ended up that I had to paint them, pretty much from scratch. I found a really good way of doing this tho. Copy a section of the original fabric, and then pretty much tile it over teh area you need covered. Then use gaussian blur to get a fairly block colour. This is the base colour. Do your shading as per usual. Now copy the original fabric again onto another layer and use overlay and soft light on fairly low transparency to give the texture.
Hope this helps.
Can you explain further what you mean? Do you want part of the design/pattern/texture from the top transferred onto the bottom? Or do you mean something else?
Meoww! Send in the clowns!

WelshCat: Okay. I have a chick in a bikini..I need to add clothing from the bikini top to the bikini bottem.. Smudging looks really bad and I now have PsP8 XD So any help you can give would be nice.

OK, I had to do this for a piece, and what I did was probably more complex than what could be done, but it worked.
You duplicate your base layer and desaturate it so it's in grayscale. Duplicate it again and erase the bikini part, so all you have on the layer is the skin that you want to cover. So it should look like you have the whole picture, but the skin is on one layer and the bikini is on another. Then you dodge the skin to make it match the bikini. You'll have to smudge the edges abit, and like smudge out the bellybutton, but it should work. After that you colorize it by making a new layer with the blend setting at multiply, and there you go.
If you have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll see what I can do.
Hope this helps!
