If you are comfortable working with muslin, that would be the best choice for the body. It is sold at lost cost and is usually 24 inches wide.

Draw a pattern that looks good to you on newsprint opened to its fullest size and make a mock up with the muslin. If you try to aim it toward a specific size, it will be easier later to get/make clothes. So... look at patterns to see information on chest measurement etc, then you'll know the proportion your mock up should have.

Otherwise, if you make her an irregular size, you'll have to make the clothes accordingly.

The head and hands may be hot glued into the neckline of the body and the arm holes.

barb, before you glue, or when the glue is still soft, tie it in the groove of the neck & wrists with stout twine. tie it tight.

and stuff it with washable fiberfill (like for pillows) that way, it can be washed inside a pillow case if haley decided to teeth on it, or any of those other things babies do to their "loveys"

also, the standard doll lengths are 15 and 18 inches. from foot to head. i LOVE home made babies.

Thanks again for the wonderful swap.. If you arent satisfied with mine, Let me know.
