The skin on the hand shows up as the wrong skin color in the tes edit and in game.

I wouldn't know, but some mod authors explicitly forbid their meshes being changed at all. Make sure in the readme that you are allowed to change the meshes before you go any further.

Of course, as long as it is for private use only, you have no issues. That said, most modders are reasonably liberal in their policies so long as you credit them for their work.

I've never seen a tutorial, probably because it's more of an art than a science. There are basically four steps required:
1. Concept. What are you going to change to make this 'female' (or 'male', as there are far more female only meshes).
2. Tweak vertices. You often have to move lots of these. I recently fitted a suspender belt (US: Garter belt) to a male mesh. Almost every vertex was repositioned.
3. Re-weight the vertices. Fortunately, Blender has a script to copy weights, so this is usually much easier than it sounds.
4. Export the Nif for the relevant game and adjust in Nifskope. Usually a matter of cut/pasting to the final mesh..

First, Import the female body mesh into whatever modeling program you use. Then import the clothing mesh and position it so that it will overlap the body mesh. You should probably make them separate objects. This way you can tweak the vertices to fit the female body. Hope that helps.

I was hoping for some beginner tutorials xD How to import, how to move verticies, Ect, any information about editing meshes in blender and or nifskope would be highly useful. Though I do have some ideas based on what you have all said thus far.

And no worries, the clothing I'm working on I've gotten permission to alter as long as it's for private use only.

Is this for Morrowind or Oblivion? Either way, there's a tutorial on Wikibooks that might help with Blender.

That tutorial should get you started. If you need other tutorials, we'll track 'em down. The UESP probably has a few as well.

Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages. It's a wiki for TES games. The Oblivion section should have links to tutorials like the ones you're looking for.
