Roblox Shirt Template

Ever wondered how awesome your avatar would look with the outfit you designed? Creating an outfit for your avatar on Roblox is not really that hard. Use this guide to create your own outfits from the Roblox shirt template in minutes!

Before we get into a step-by-step guide to create your own avatar clothing, a brief introduction to the Roblox Templates is in order. But feel free to skip to the next section for the step-by-step guide.

Roblox Shirt Template: Transparent, Pants, Shaded Shirt

There are three types of outfits you can create on Roblox. The simplest and the fastest to create is the T-Shirt Decal. And then the more advanced and customizable ones are the Shirt and the Pants.

Roblox T Shirt

The T-Shirt Decal is like the other Decals on Roblox. Wearing a T-Shirt is essentially putting the T-Shirt decal on the torso of the avatar. This is the reason it is very limited. In Roblox Studio, T-Shirts are called Shirt Graphics. You can apply a T-Shirt on an avatar by pressing the “+” button next to your avatar and selecting Shirt Graphic under Avatar sub-list. The recommended size of a T-Shirt is 512×512 pixels. For more advanced customization, Roblox offers Shirts and Pants.

Roblox Shirt is an advanced customization option for giving your avatar a near real look. To create shirts on Roblox, you have to use the template they provided to design different areas of the shirt and upload it to apply it on your avatars.

The following image is the Roblox Shirt Template that you will have to download to start designing a shirt. Right click and click on “Save Image as…” to download the template onto your computer.

To make sense of the above template, we need to visualize the shapes getting wrapped around the avatar by folding them at different boundaries. For example, the red portion in the TORSO section with the text FRONT will appear on the avatar’s front side of the torso and the green R block is folded back to become the right side of the avatar’s torso. Same is the case with the yellow L block and the blue BACK square which covers the back side of the torso.

Similarly, the Right Arm and Left Arm blocks on the bottom cover the arms of the avatar. L stands for Left, B stands for Back, R for Right and F for Front. So, the yellow L is applied to the left side of the arms, blue B on the back of the arm, green R on the right side and red F on the front side.

Sizes of various parts of the shirt

  • The front and back of the torso are both 128×128 pixels.
  • The sides of the torso and the four sides of the arms are all 64×128 pixels.
  • The top and bottom of the torso are both 128×64 pixels.
  • The top and bottom of the arms are both 64×64 pixels.

The table below helps you understand the sizes of various parts of the shirt better.

Things to keep in mind – Shirt Size

  • Roblox Team put a disclaimer on their website about the limits the templates have when it comes to applying clothing to your R15 avatars. Those limits are regarding shoe design on pants. If you are not designing shoes for your avatar, you can ignore this.
  • Also note that the outfits you design must strictly adhere to the size guidelines set by Roblox. The images you upload should match the 585×559 pixels requirement for the upload process to succeed.
  • Know that a few avatars do not accommodate clothing by design. Please look at the avatar bundle description to know if clothing can be customized for the avatar.
