Clothing Templates For Second Life
So you want to be a clothing designer in Second Life? Well to get started you'll need Clothing Templates for Second Life. What are Clothing Templates? Well in Second Life they are premade items that you can put together on your avatar and be the creator. It's actually quite simple to do and I learned how to use them in 5 minutes without any help at all. I will however steer you in the right direction. I've had so much fun making clothes and I am going to use them as a guide to learn more about making my own Clothes for Second Life.
The Two Types of Clothing Templates for Second Life
TGA's and PSD files
When you buy clothing templates you need to know which ones you want. If you know anything about using Photoshop then you might want a template that includes PSD files. If you want basic ready to put together templates then use regular TGA files. When you upload images to Second Life it's in TGA format and PSD format includes all the layers that are a part of the clothing template. Not all designers sell the PSD file so be sure to read the listing or item in game carefully to choose the right one for you/
Creating Your World: The Official Guide to Advanced Content Creation for Second Life
Freebies and up to 10 Lindens Templates for Second Life Clothing - You can earn money from your creations.
There are some very affordable templates to learn Second Life Clothing. Some are TGA and others are PSD. Try them out to learn the basics before going for more expensive templates.
Once you make clothing you are the creator. You can sell your creations to other residents. Be sure to set the right permissions on your items. Copy/Mod or Mod/Transfer. You don't want it set to Copy/Mod/Transfer. That's full permissions and others can take your work and hand it to everyone. Also never hand out the templates to others. It's against ToS and could land you in trouble.

All you need to do is go into Edit Outfit then near the bottom is New Clothes. I picked new shirt for my top you can do either jacket, shirt or undershirt. Jacket is always the top layer. You'll have this ugly white covering on you and you can change it by clicking on the fabric box. You'll need to search for your Template TGA to use. Once you do that you'll have your outfit. There's some sliders you can use to make sure the fit is right, but most of the time you have to change nothing. You can then change the name and use save or save as and you'll have your clothes.

Mesh is the newest thing in Second Life for creators. It's more detailed than regular clothes and sculpted prims. You can Rig mesh when creating it and it will move with the avatar.

So if you don't know how to create mesh from scratch then why not try an affordable clothing template. I'll list some of the ones that aren't to much on your budget and you can try out for yourself and earn a little profit in your store.
