Welcome to ehealthforum.
There are no studies to prove that sperms can pass through clothes and lead to pregnancy. However passage through thin fabrics or fabrics that have more spaces between the woven threads, cannot be ruled out. If there was direct contact of semen or pre-cum with vagina during your fertile days, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out.
Take care.
