Hey Everybuddy! I just made my first Ribbon Shirt in Second Life.  Now, please remember, it’s just a first try, but it’s not too shabby, and was soooo easy to do!  I swiped a picture from the InterWebs, pasted it into the Photoshop template, and did pretty much what they tell you to do in the tutorials, and voila!


In my next attempt, I want to try making the ribbons “flexi” so they look like they are hanging from the shirt.
