So I decided to make my own jointed plushies
I'm just stuck on making them big enough to fit barbie and bratz clothes (I found so many bratz clothes that would look good on my character Jude)

any suggestions? PS. I'm making the pattern myself and don't have any barbie or bratz clothing items on me at the moment

It might help if you ask something more specific in order to get answers.

All I can offer is that if you want to make something to fit into those clothes, you'll need to work to the same dimensions as the dolls they were meant for. You can probably find that info by Googling, if you don't have a doll to measure.

See if you can borrow a Barbie and/or Bratz doll to measure it. Once you have all the measurements written down, you can draft your jointed plushies to similar dimensions. You may even find either doll type at a thrift store.

You best bet would be to go pick a barbie doll.  Thrift shops always seem to have them or look at yard sales.  If nothing else buy a new one.  You can get cheap knockoff versions really cheap in dollar stores.  That way you'll have the doll to compare too as you create your pattern.

If you really can't find a way to get a hold of an actual doll you can keep in mind that Barbies are molded on a 1/6th doll scale.  A standard Barbie doll is 11.5 inches tall, giving a height of 5 feet 9 inches at 1/6 scale. Barbie's vital statistics have been estimated at 36 inches (6" chest), 18 inches (3" waist) and 33 inches (5.5" hips).  There are lots of free doll patterns on the internet.  Search for one in a 1/6th scale and use those dimensions as your starting point.
