Making Avatar Clothing

Making Avatar Clothing

5 min

This article outlines how to make avatar pants and shirts, either for yourself or to sell in the catalog.

T-Shirt Decals

The easiest (but most limited) clothing design is a t-shirt which is basically an image that gets applied to the front of an avatar’s torso. To make a t-shirt, create an image (ideally 128×128 pixels) and then upload it to Roblox as outlined below.

Shirts and Pants

Unlike t-shirts, shirts and pants wrap all the way around an avatar’s body, giving you more design control. To get started, you can use our clothing templates and draw your own art on top.

  1. Right-click these images and select Save Image As… to save the templates to your computer.
Torso + Arms (Shirt)
Torso + Legs (Pants)
  1. Open the templates in the image editor of your choice; some free options include GIMP and Paint.NET.

For each template, notice that the parts are “folded up” and wrapped around a Roblox character’s body, arms, and legs. Here are the sizes for each template part:

Shape Size (width × height) Clothing Parts
Large square 128 × 128 pixels Front and back of torso
Tall rectangle 64 × 128 pixels Sides of torso (R, L)
Sides of arms/legs (L, B, R, F)
Wide rectangle 128 × 64 pixels Top and bottom of torso
Small square 64 × 64 pixels Top and bottom of arms/legs (U, D)
Design Considerations

When applying clothing to articles/roblox avatars|R15 avatars in Roblox, some limits exist with the templates. Here are a couple examples of how you should and should not design the shoes on a pants template.

In this example, the shoe designs are placed near the bottom of the leg regions (L, B, R, F) but don't extend too far up. This provides a nice separation between the shoes and the bottom of the jeans.
Here, the shoe designs extend too far up the leg regions (L, B, R, F) which make them appear as if they're part of the pants. The same issue may occur near other joints on the avatar's body.

Notes / Limitations
  • Some avatars like Circuit Breaker do not accommodate clothing, by design.
  • For shirts and pants, the uploaded image must be the exact dimensions of the template — 585 pixels wide and 559 pixels tall — or the upload will fail.

Uploading Clothing

Once you’re done with your design, you need to upload it to Roblox.

  1. Save your template file. Note that you can use 8-bit alpha channels for transparent regions.
  2. Go to the Create page.
  3. Click on either Shirts, Pants, or T-Shirts in the left column, depending on your design.
  4. In the main area of the window, click Choose File to select your template file.
  5. Type in a creative name for your item.
  6. Click the Upload button. Once approved by Roblox, the item will show up as one of your creations and can be applied to your avatar or offered for sale to other Roblox players.
