html, css and js.  Probably a database to store info.  From the first link, you can see they just have a jigsaw puzzle and put the pieces together.

They look like images.  You can use any photo and slice it up or make yourself a drawing.

This is a one of the actual images
collarThis image I found from googeling collars.

To do this project, you need to be part front end developer, part graphic designer and part backend developer.

The site has plenty of examples.

Once a 3d scene and shape is drawn, you can apply texture map.
(see simple example of cube

http://threejs.org/examples/#webgl_geometry_cube

You can draw the shape (in your case shirt) with  API

Even you can find a tutorial on how to model shirt
