Is there a product available that would enable me to shorten the length of a shirt or a dress please?

    Not directly.

    There is mesh grabber which can move mesh.

    Or dFormer, whivh might be better for shortening something.

    But a better way to do it, in my view, is to take it into a modeller and make a morph.

    I know there is a tutorial by Sickleyeild, but I couldn't find it.

    If you search, then there are a number of tutials, that should give the feel for it, but I didn't see any I knew and would recommned. But I suggest you look at some to get a feel for it.

    Steps to create a morph

    1) Export the clothing out of Daz Studio in default shape and base resolution as an Obj

    2) Import you clothing into a modeller and do the change

    3) Export the clothing back as an Obj

    4) In Daz Studio select your clothing in the scene tab and enable morph loader pro

    5) In morph loader pro select the modified Obj file and create morph

    With some luck it should then create your morph

     

    For the actual change of making something shorter in the modeller, I would select the lower row of faces and enable proportional editing (that is a blender term, but the only modeller I know), adjust size of effected area and move upwards.

     

    A potentially easier method, as creating a morph might be overwelming, is to make the lower area of the clothing invisible using a mask in cut-out oppacite. A black mask will make it invisible.

    Do you have a link to the items you want to modify?

    Here Jay is using Hexagon to do exactly that...shorten a dress length and sleeve length.

    There is a way. Use surface selection. Make a new surface for the clothes that you want to hide, create a new surface with it, and in the surfaces tab, set the opacity of the surface to zero.
