In brief: Unlikely, ...

Semen contains & protect sperms so cloth would not separate both.
Considering the high fastidious requirements for sperms to survive, the described scenario should give a zero odd to conceive. Nonetheless, always do HPT one week after missing period and repeat it in another week if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt, since no known contraceptive bears 100% success but absolute abstinence.
