Few clothing items are as versatile, affordable, reliable, and essential as a basic tee. Tees never go out of style, and you can make them your own with your favorite color combinations.
Below are a few ideas for inspiration.
They look cool, don’t they?
Let’s start! Follow the instructions below and you will see how easy it is to make a T-shirt with colors you’ll love.
○ Pick your design tool
As in the previous tutorials, either Photoshop or Gimp will be used. Both let you customize the color of your tee.

○ Get your shirt
Let’s see how your avatar looks with the colored tee. To do so, you need to open the project where you saved your tee (the one you made following the steps of the tutorial Making a Shirt).
When you click on the Open a Local Project button, your “IMVU Projects” folder will open.
The Editor will open.
○ Shirt creation
Let’s apply changes on your T-shirt.
A default avatar is displayed on your screen.
The one on the screen will be substituted with the one you have chosen.
In the Materials Column you find the three textures previously created (front (the one with an image), back, and sleeves textures).
Let’s load all new textures.
Now, the front texture is the one you created.
Now, that all textures are loaded, let’s see how your avatar looks.
The T-shirt can be combined with many garments!
CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve made a beautiful T-shirt!
