Take the baby doll you are going to purchase doll clothes for and see which of the four categories closest fits your dolls measurements.

If your baby doll is border line on a size it is best to purchase the bigger size doll clothes, rather than the smaller. This will help insure the doll clothes will go on easily and without frustration.
