Find a satin material image on the net, then use the "Texturize" function.

I'm not a Photoshop user, so I can't help you with any special tricks. But I would recommend to simply start with drawing clothes from real life. Take a shirt, a towel, anything, and put it in front of you on a table (with some nice folds and creases). Draw it in Photoshop, or with pencil and paper, and pay special attention to the light and the dark areas.

Another part of it is knowing how clothing hangs from a body, how it creases under tension, and how it folds up if an arm or a leg is bent. Again, drawing from real life or from photos is a good way to learn this.

If you post your pictures here, people can see what exactly looks so bad about it, and maybe give more specific advice.

Pretty much ditto what Nocte said. The more farmiliar I get with ps and drawing in general, the more I realize that problems I though were caused by lack of ps knowledge were really just because I needed to get better at drawing '<img'>. I'd say the vast majority of any work should be possible with the brush, a few colors, and an occasional dodge and burn.
