First, let’s take a look at my 6″ American Girl doll‘s official measurements for sewing purposes:
- Neck circumference… 5.3 cm
- Neck to shoulder seam… 1.9 cm
- Bust 9.6 cm
- Collar to true waist… 3.5 cm
- Underarm to true waist… 1.6 cm
- Sleeve inseam (underarm to cuff)… 4.4 cm
- Sleeve from shoulder seam to cuff… 4.5 cm
- Sleeve circumference (upper arm bicep)… 3.7 cm
- Waist … 9 cm
- Hip circumference… 9.8 cm
- Pants inseam (crotch to just below the ankle bone)… 6 cm
- Pants outseam (waist to just below the ankle bone)… 9 cm
- Pants leg circumference (upper thigh)… 5.6 cm
- Height not including hair… 6.5 inches or 16.5 cm
I think she looks pretty believable in comparison to both Barbie and my Liv doll. However, I think my AG mini‘s feet don’t compare well when you look at them next to Barbie‘s. They do look okay next to the Chelly Wood doll (the Liv doll) though.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic. What do you think, blog followers? Could the 6″ American Girl doll pass as Barbie‘s six-year-old daughter? Would she be more believable as a Liv doll‘s daughter?
And what age do you think the 6-inch American Girl doll would represent in story-style dioramas?
