Last week we took a look at how the 6-inch American Girl Mini dolls measured up to Barbie dolls. Assuming that Barbie‘s measurements were pretty universally known, I offered the measurements of just the 6-inch American Girl Mini dolls. However, one of my blog followers, Dodi, suggested that we also need to see the measurements for Barbie. So today’s #TapeMeasureTuesday offers both the measurements for … Continue reading #TapeMeasureTuesday: How does the 6″ Mini #AGdoll measure up against #Barbie (Part 2)?

After I bought my first one and learned how articulated … Continue reading #TapeMeasureTuesday: Measure Hearts for Hearts #dolls for #sewing projects
Every now and then, I get a request for doll clothes patterns to fit the Disney Princess line of dolls. Often these requests don’t specify which doll the sewist is creating clothes for. The problem is that Disney Princesses come in many shapes and sizes, as you can see in the image below. There’s even a number of Disney Princess dolls in larger “toddler” sizes, … Continue reading #TapeMeasureTuesday: Measure a Disney Princess Merida doll for sewing projects
Doesn’t my “28-inch Best Fashion Friend” Barbie look fabulous as a figure skater? Wait ’till you see the stop motion movie I made of her skating! It will appear in this week’s tutorial video.

Not only does the Barbie pajama pattern fit Skipper, but as you can see in the image above, the shorts I designed to fit Barbie will also fit Skipper. However if you want the waist to fit Skipper snugly, you should really measure Skipper’s waist for your elastic when you make the shorts, not Barbie’s.
