Why does the hoodie drawstrings "float"?

Ask about specific settings, like fabric properties, or the difference between the sewing tools. These would be things you would expect to see in a software manual.

Why does the hoodie drawstrings "float"?

So I made this hoodie, and most of it looks fine, expect the strings. For some reason they "float" rather than rest on the body.

When I turned to Collision Thickness to 0, the strings got a bit closer to the fabric, but still not resting properly on the body.

How do I make it behave properly?

Are you using the default fabric for the drawstring? If so, then choose a preset which will give the fabric more bending ability....usually the preset names indicate just how soft/flexible it is........ or create your own by lowering the settings in the Property Editor. Work the sliders for Bending, Buckling, Shear, Stiffness, etc. Watch how each effects the fabric.
