I'm not familiar with Baby Alive. For my dds baby doll I let her use some of my newborn size real baby clothing. They fit good enough, but don't have the velcro closures that make dressing easy. Their baby dolls are close to newborn size.

Is this the same Baby Alive from my depraved childhood, ie the one that eats and (eek) poops?

shriekin' at the thought,

I had no idea what Baby Alive is so I checked, and yes, Nancy, it is that one! I was lucky enough not to be given one of those.

It's not the same size as the other popular dolls out there.

Check e-bay; someone is selling copies of a Baby Alive clothing pattern.

Ugg. No, we also refused to get that one (oldest DD wanted her after seeing all the commercials, but did agree when seeing it in person that it was kinda ugly, LOL! Anyways, we got them Baby Born and baby ChouChou instead and I have made several outfits for those. All babydolls are slightly different, but you can use the commercially available (cheap big4) patterns as a starting point. Make tracings in a supple medium (soil separator, STP etc) and the tissue fit the doll, pinching out, cutting away and seeing if you need to add where needed. For the Baby Born doll for instance, the rise is way lower than the baby doll clothes patterns I had, so I adjusted that, and it has short arms.
FYI, if anyone else is making clothes for baby Born... the 18" doll patterns (think American Girl) fit her reasonably well, better than the baby doll patterns. The pants don't fit at all, but the shirts fit great (shorten the sleeves about 1 1/2") and the skirts and dresses fit perfectly. HTH someone!

Check out http://www.morrisseydolls.com/ for doll clothes patterns. My SIL bought some of these from eBay for my niece's My Size Barbie (which is rather creepy).

I was given a Baby Alive when I was a kid (I forget what the occasion was). When my parents realized what it actually was, it went right back to the store!

I had Baby Alive, ugh. I think the favorite baby doll I had was rather large, plastic head, feet and hands with stuffed body. I called it Cindy (don't know if that was the name on othe package or not). Anyway, it fit in baby clothes (probably 6 month sized). I wonder if they still make those kind of dolls. I don't have a girl so I never tour through the pink aisles and now that my son is 14, I never enter Toys R Us anymore.
