If you want to build the cloth using curves you have to do a lot of little curves using EP CURVE tool to make the circle and make sure all the edges line up perfect. If you just use a nurbs circle its not going to be coplanar which is why you get the error.

The easiest way is to make the circle in polygons then covert into a cloth object.

All I want to know is how do I create a panel in cloth.
