Have you checked out The Texturing tutorials Directory ? It ius full of great tutorials on all kinds of stuff. The more specific you are in the forums the better answers you will get. Make sure you include what program you use to draw (photoshop, Gimp, something else?) and what mesh you are working with (product ID) as well as specific questions like "How do I make a vinyl clothing texture" or "How can I make this scarf soft and fuzzy looking?" Specific questions will get better answers than vague ones. Tips on making things look real will depend on what it is you are making.

Good luck and most of all have fun!

I'm going to assume that you already know how to make basic clothing textures and now are simply looking on advice how to make them more realistic.

I would say that there are big important factors when it comes to creating a realistic clothing texture: the correctness of colors and the sharpness and realism of the texture itself.

Making your products colored correctly is probably the more simple part. Think about what the clothing you see in real life look like. It is never really highly saturated, is it? Similarly, the shadows and the highlights cast on clothing in real life don't look like black and white smudges. The tones need to match. This is a mistake I've seen starting developer do often, the shines or shadows become a different tone from the original texture, usually more saturated and brighter. To prevent this, I personally like using color layers to make sure that the colors stay correct.

Now, making the texture itself look sharp and flow realistically is the harder part. This is where you really need to look at how real clothes flow on the body. Many people even use real pictures of clothing as their guide. Real clothing doesn't ever look blurry and smudged. It has lots of sharp details in the right places. Whenever I do not know where I should add wrinkles or shadows or anything like that or do not know how to make it look right, again, I turn to examples of real clothing. There really isn't much advice that can be given about this, you just have to practice and gain experience to know how things are supposed to look like and how to balance sharpness and smoothness. Too sharp will look weird and pixelated while too blurry will just look, well, blurry.
