RagingMoon1987 here, and this one's for D7ana! After I reviewed the Vi and Va dress (link here) D7ana wanted to know if any of Barbie's siblings could wear the dress. I thought this was a fantastic question, but I didn't have any modern Barbie siblings at the time. Two weeks and three new dollies later, I now have the materials required to answer D7ana's question. I ruled out Barbie in all her body sizes, early 90's Skipper, and Teen Skipper because they're too big, and Kelly and Chelsea because they're too small. However, present-day Skipper, present-day Stacie, and 90's Stacie looked promising. So here's the results that I got.
Skipper looks super cute in the dress from the front...
Stacie, present day
The results of this test shocked me.
Stacie, early nineties
Here's what this Stacie looks like.
As a little bonus, here's Princess Malucia in New Stacie's original outfit.
So there you have it! Vi and Va dresses will work on either size Stacie doll, but are not recommended for Skipper of any size. This is still good news, because clothes that will fit either Stacie are hard to come by. 90's Stacie has been discontinued for quite some time, and I don't think Mattel even makes extra outfits for the current Stacie. Mattel, if you read this, PLEASE do that! Barbie's sisters deserve some name-brand garb too.
And now, I have a question for myself. Since Vi and Va are MGA dolls, I wonder how well their clothes would fit other MGA dolls like Bratz and Moxie Girlz? Since I've got both in a couple of body sizes, that will have to be looked into. Y'all likely haven't seen the last of this dress.
