Scrub the garment with turpentine. This will get rid of any oil paint. Of course the clothing will need a thorough wash afterwards to get rid of the turpentine smell. There is also this awesome product called kiss off!! When I paint with oils I tend to get it everywhere and it always gets rid of the stains!
