oh, maybe I've found the resource I've been looking for!
I make dolls from my own pattern, a rather long doll with a dancer's shape. I have requests from people to buy these dolls but I just hate to make the clothes!
My doll is about 14 inches high, and has wide hips and shoulders and a narrow waist- dancer's legs. Her exaggerated shape makes things a little harder.. like fitting pants, for instance. She can wear a mean mermaid tail, however!
I'll post a picture of her soon.
