Question
Hi,
I have some very nice Santa heads and I would like to make the correct proportional bodies for them. I've spent a lot of time looking on the Internet and can't seem to find any information on how to measure my Santa heads or what size body to make for them.  I'm very handy so making the bodies won't be any trouble.  It's just getting the right information that's the problem. Any or all information would be a greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much
Tami

Answer
Hi
  most doll makers use 7-1 or 8- 1  

here are some links to help  remember for a Santa face and body would both be plumper
