I am probably posting this in the wrong section of CC.
I am also probably missing tutorials about this.
But basically I want to create something like this;
http://images.asos-media.com/inv/media/3/9/9/9/3359993/black/image1xxl.jpg I've always wanted to create this kind of dress and haven't seen one on IMVU yet and I really want to try completely creating one myself from the very basic top made by IMVU.
I am all good with making my own textures and I know how I'd go about making the gaps using opacity maps. The only thing I don't know how to do is to create an entirely new 3d design. So basically creating the basic outline of that dress using the default t-shirt by imvu.

Any help/suggestions?

P.S I have 3d max and I know I'll need that to start. I've been researching on here trying to find a link that still works about how exactly to go about creating clothes with 3d max and creating a dress and all that.

you need to master 3ds max..
you will not find one video that will show you how, but you need to learn almost everything ( no animation) from max to make clothing for imvu and it can be little harder cos you need to make it low poly,so a lot of plugins that help to make clothing on max, cant be use for imv or have to learn to use them and till make a low poly mesh.
making clothing I one of the hardest thing, you need to learn meshing ( can be the easy part) rigging / physique , skin, unwrapping , and apply textures the imvu way to the mesh to make it work here,, sound easy but these can take several months to learn.
you`ll have a hard time finding tutorials special made for making cloths , special for imvu but few are out there , few masher have pay to learn or went to an art school.
a lot of us ( I don't make clothing cos I hate physique) we learn on our own and me after 5 years using max I still learn new things.
If I was you I would start from the beginning, baby steps learn max first , cos if you jump to try to make clothing and don't know max very very good, it will give you lots of headaches and it will be harder to follow tutorials..

Well I know how to work 3d max because I am a graduate art student so texturing, opacity and 3d max are no problem but I don't know exactly how to do it for imvu. If that makes sense. Like I would know how to make it if I knew what to do to make it an imvu product.

Not sure which ones that Introversive found, but here's a thread that lists all/most of the full bodysuit/dress style tutorials that I know of:
http://nb.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=529805

Most have videos and at least a couple are quite long, going through the hardest part - the weighting of the full sized dress or bodysuit.
