Fitting Clothing~


#1

When Fitting a body ~Generally a Newborn~ Can one generally figure a 19inch to 22’ inch newborn can fit into a 0-3 month item of clothing or should one fit the baby to the clothing per item of clothing~ YES i’m not a Mommy. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: < I’m ordering a dress because I simply can’t wait…maybe…>

Go for “newborn” size.
“Newborn” is generally “19- 21 inches” and 0-3 is like 22-25 inches… (Baby clothes makers expect kids to.grow into them)

However if it is adorable and doesn’t come in newborn, real human babies are always wearing clothes slightly too big for.them as their moms buy a size too big knowing they will rapidly grow into them… So a little loose can look authentic

Thank you, Emmy, I do know that…I really like some different dresses…and I’m just like an anxious “Mom” at this point LOL! I’m looking kind of for a Chrismas dress…maybe, ya know, my first baby…near Christmas…what a deal. I’m way too hyped for my own good…:joy:

Mary Jane ,and anyone els>it’s Brittany :slight_smile:

She typically wears newborn unless it’s a brand that runs very small.In a dress I would say newborn size.Usually the ones that wear the 0-3 are about 22 inch babies.Brittany will come out around 20 inch long when reborn.

I use newborn for 19-20" babies and 0-3 mos for 21-22" babies.

Happy Birthday @GypsyRoss!! Kim you are going to have a blast when that baby finally arrives. If no one has mentioned to you yet, watch out for dark colors, they can “stain” the vinyl (I’m talking about your baby’s clothes), make sure to wash things first, specially the Dark colored clothes. So often people put dark socks on the little feet, oops, black colored toes!! I personally don’t use many “bright” colors so I’m not sure about the color transfer with those. I’m a pastel color freak! Let us know when you get that “Kid”!!

Thanks so much Lynn! :blush: So far, the clothes I’ve ordered are all i the range of baby pinks and ivory/whites. I’m also like that with the babies altho as an artist I just love bright color over all. Thank you for the advice, I welcome any and all everybody will offer, And thank so much on the birthday wishes, I wonder where the years go…I could easily be a greatgrandmother at my age, 53 today,WOW. Kinda goes over my head, but not really, especially when I remember how short m memory really is LOL! Oh, and I’ll be the first to shout it out when ma babe arrives ha! :smile:
