Roblox defines itself as a global platform where millions of users worldwide can gather to “imagine, create, and share experiences with each other in immersive, user-generated 3D worlds.” Kids probably know Roblox best because of popular games like Theme Park Tycoon 2, Jailbreak, and MeepCity. But what many of them might not realize is that those games were conceptualized, coded, and created by their fellow Roblox users.

This has established Roblox as a community of gamers and coders focused on spreading creativity. It helps that the Roblox platform encourages this by providing different tools and programs for users to use.

 

One of our favorite tools is the Roblox shirt template.

Creating Roblox Clothing

 

When you join Roblox, you are asked to create your own 3D avatar. The game already offers plenty of customization options and items for you to make your character unique. But for those who want to really stand out, you can design and create one-of-a-kind clothes for your avatar to wear. All you need is a template, some form of image editing software (there are plenty of free ones that are really intuitive!), and a bit of practice.

 

Some Roblox players enjoy the artistic freedom they find in being able to design their own in-game clothes. Others love how it further encourages creativity.

 

And, bonus; you get to play around with making 3D graphics!

 

Shirt vs. T-Shirt vs. Pants

 

roblox t shirt wiki

 

Now, before you choose a design, it’s important to note that Roblox shirts are different from Roblox t-shirts. Roblox t-shirts are more of decals that are applied to the front of your avatar’s torso. Think like a logo or design on the front of a graphic tee. A custom Roblox t-shirt doesn’t wrap around the avatar’s body.

 

Check out these examples from the Roblox Wiki:

 

Roblox shirts, on the other hand, do wrap all the way around the avatar’s body. They include the back, front, collar, and sleeves of the clothing item. They’re completely 3D in nature, giving you more control over the design. 

So you could, in theory, create a Roblox shirt with different-colored sleeves and two completely different designs for the back and front. When you create a Roblox t-shirt, you can only change the front.

 

Here’s an example of a Roblox shirt. Notice how the sleeves have a different design:

That was made using this Roblox shirt template (which we’ll give a detailed step-by-step guide to later on):

Any Roblox user can make a Roblox t-shirt. However, if you want to make a Roblox shirt or pants, you’ll need a Roblox Builder’s Club membership.

 

Knowing the difference between the two items helps you make a more informed decision when choosing which one to make. Once you know what you want, scroll down to find our detailed step-by-step guide (plus templates!) on how to make them.

 

Roblox T-Shirt Template

 

If you want to know how to make a Roblox t-shirt, keep reading! It’s the easiest to make out of the three, so we highly recommend this option for beginners.

 

  1.   Decide what design you’d like. Remember, this will only be seen on your avatar’s front. Simpler designs will work best for a first try.
  2.   Once you know what you want, create the image and resize it to 128×128 pixels and save it as a .PNG file.
  3.   If you don’t want to create it from scratch or don’t know how, you can always download some online (with permission, of course!). There are plenty of websites that offer free PNG files for personal use. Try TopPNG or Pinterest for some great graphics.
  4.   Once you’ve got your design sized to 128×128 pixels and saved as a .PNG file, upload it to Roblox or test it out.

How to Upload T-Shirts to Roblox:

 

  1.   Go to the Roblox “Create” page.
  2.   In the left-hand column, you’ll see options to upload designs for either Shirts, Pants, or T-Shirts. Select T-Shirts.
  3.   Click on Choose File and select your design.
  4.   Name your design. Make it as fun or as creative as you’d like!
  5.   Hit the Upload button. Congratulations – you’ve uploaded your custom Roblox t-shirt!

 

How to Test Roblox T-Shirts:

 

If you want to make sure your t-shirt looks exactly like you’ve envisioned it before uploading it to Roblox, you can test it out using the Roblox Studio. Here’s how:

 

  1.   Go to “Roblox Studio” and open the Plugins tab. Select Build Rig (Rig Builder).
  2.   A pop-up menu will display the type of rigs you can build. Select whichever one you want. This should bring up a basic avatar – standard frame, no cosmetics whatsoever – for you to test on.
  3.   Go to the “Explorer” window. Under Workspace, you should see a Dummy option with a + button next to it. Click on the + button.
  4.   You’ll see options to insert either a Shirt Graphic (Roblox t-shirt) or Clothing (Roblox shirt or pants) object. Select Shirt Graphic.
  5.   Look under the Appearance tab in the “Properties” window. You’ll find three options: Graphic, ShirtTemplate, and PantsTemplate. Select the row next to the Graphic option and choose the .PNG image you uploaded to Roblox.
  6.   The Dummy in your workspace should now be wearing your custom t-shirt!

Roblox Shirt Template

 

The Roblox shirt, as we mentioned, wraps around your avatar. So there are more pieces to be aware of. It’s definitely not as easy as making a Roblox t-shirt, but having the Roblox shirt template keeps it fairly within the beginner-friendly category for 3D graphics!

 

If you want to know how to make a Roblox shirt, keep reading:

 

  1.   Depending on what you’re planning to make, you’ll need to save either of these templates (Right-click on the template and choose Save image as…):

 

roblox shirt template

 

roblox pants template

 

You can, of course, save both if you’re going to make both a shirt and some pants.

 

  1.   The idea is for your design to follow the outlines, boxes, and restraints set by the templates. This way, once the image is “folded” along the lines set by the template, you’ll have a fully three-dimensional piece of clothing in-game.
  2.   Open the template in your chosen image editing software. The most popular one is Photoshop, but we understand that not everyone has it. Don’t worry; there are plenty of free-to-use programs out there that’ll do just as well! Try GIMP or Paint.NET for starters.
  3.   Each section of the template represents a specific part of the shirt and indicates where they’ll go on your avatar’s body. Each section also has a specific size.
  4.   If you’re having trouble deciphering the Roblox shirt template, refer to our table below:

 

SectionSizeArea
Large Square128 x 128 pixelsFront and back of avatar’s torso
Small Square64 x 64 pixelsTop and bottom of avatar’s arms and legs
Wide Rectangle128 x 64 pixelsTop and bottom of avatar’s torso
Tall Rectangle64 x 128 pixelsR & L: sides of the avatar’s torso

L, B, R & F: sides of the avatar’s arms and legs

 

  1.   Apply your design to each part. Use the sizes to help you trim and resize your design as needed.

  1.   Remember: this is a 3D graphic. Rather than apply a different design to each section, try to treat it as one cohesive clothing item. Think of how the sleeves will attach to the front and back or how the shoes will attach to the pants, etc.
  2.   Save your design as a .PNG file and upload it to Roblox or test it out.
