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

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
