I thought I would share the measurements of my 11 inch fashion doll because I have a few other projects in the works for her. She is similar in size to Barbie type dolls, but, very likely, not exactly the same. I bought my doll at a big box craft store and according to her packaging she was intended as a doll to have clothes crocheted for her. Since I didn't already have an actual, official Barbie, I thought I would try using her for sewing clothes for. If you use my patterns it might be a good idea to print out the measurements I list below and then take the same measurements on your doll or dolls so that you can compare and adjust as needed.
