Roblox is an online gaming platform where all the games and content are made by the players. Players in the game are represented by customizable characters called Avatars. Players can customize their avatars with clothing and accessories purchased from the Avatar Shop, or they can make their own. In Roblox, you can design a T-shirt or a shirt. A T-shirt is nothing more than an image decal that is applied to the front of an avatar's torso. A shirt is more complex and consists of a design for the front, back, sides, top and bottom of the torso. Shirts are designed using a template and require a Roblox subscription to upload. This wikiHow teaches you how to create a T-shirt decal and a shirt.

    If you've just uploaded it, Roblox is just checking the design to make sure it's appropriate. It could also have been a limited time item.

    If you have just uploaded a shirt, you'll have to wait for Roblox to approve it before you can see the design. The approval process can take anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of days. If you've had it for a while and suddenly the design can't be seen, it's possible the shirt was removed. You may have violated the guidelines. If you're certain you didn't, then contact Roblox.
