First, let’s look at the changes: Same picture as the previous one, but with reference lines added to help you see where the differences are. Curvy Barbie is about the same height, just flat feet so she looks a little shorter.
She has the same length torso, but is more pear shaped with a not much larger upper body but a bigger lower body.
Theoretically this type of dress should fit all of them, and it does!
Here are all the numbers broken down: You may be surprised by how many measurements are shared between regular Barbie and the new body shapes, and how close the ones that aren’t shared are!I’ve mentioned before that variation of 1cm or less at this size can usually be taken care of by adjusting the back closure. Petite Barbie, whose measurements are all 1 cm or less different, you should be able to use the same clothes and patterns but overlap/take in the back closure slightly.Some stretchy dresses may fit, but most will be a bit shorter.Curvy Barbie has the measurements most different to Regular Barbie and will be able to share the fewest clothes. She will have the easiest time borrowing shirts, provided they have at least a little bit of stretch.
By this logic, all Barbies should be able to share the same stretchy sheath dresses.Let’s try that out: These are not factory made clothes, these are all the same dress made from my Cocktail Dress Pattern put on the different dolls (and the only pattern I’ve released so far that will dress all of them).
