Measuring Dolls for Wollyonline Doll Patterns

You will need to take all measurements shown in the picture above, or the list below. Once you have those, you can look at which patterns are suitable for your doll.

1) Total Height: head to toe in cm
2) Chest: under the armpits over the shoulder blades and across the chest in cm
3) Waist: around the waist in cm
4) Hip: around the fullest part of the hips in cm
5) Neck to Waist: from the cervical to the waistline in cm
6) Inside Leg: from the crotch to the soles in cm
7) Arm & Shoulder Length: from the side of the neck to the wrist bone in cm
8) Head Circumference: around the head right above the ears in cm


Which Patterns are suitable for my doll?

All Wollyonline patterns are created to fit a certain 'height' doll. This doll height is the total height: top of the head to soles of the feet. Patterns suitable for 43cm dolls are created to fit dolls of 43cm total height.


The correct size isn't there?

Choose a larger/smaller pattern when: the chest/waist/hip of your doll is larger or smaller. These differences will immediately result in doll clothes that are either too small or too large and are very hard to change.

Choose the pattern anyway when: all sizes are correct BUT the inside leg or arm & shoulder are shorter/longer. This is the sleeve and pants length and this is easy to change by adding or taking away seam allowance.
