Barbie Doll Size Differences. There are two main types of Barbie dolls.
I'm not saying there aren't more types than that, even, but these are the kinds I am addressing. As you can see from the pictures there are some major differences in the shapes of the two types. The newer one has narrower shoulders, smaller chest/bust, larger waist, wider hips, and larger hands; the natural waist is also a bit higher. The newer style was made to be more like a real figure, but unfortunately all of the purchased patterns I have used are catered to the older doll figure.
This means it will be too loose in the shoulders and bust, and not big enough in the waist and hips, and the sleeves may be too narrow for her hand to pass through. Before you begin a project, you should make sure that the pattern you have works for the doll you have. Here are rough measurements comparing the differences between the two doll types.
