Donny and Marie Osmond Doll Clothes Patterns #RetroSewing #DollClothesPatterns

Here we see the Chelly Wood doll (really a Spin Master Liv doll that has been repainted and had its wig dyed to look like the doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood) holding up the vintage doll clothes pattern, Simplicity 7737. On the cover art for this pattern, we see dolls wearing sporty shorts outfits, full-body coveralls, evening attire, and traditional Kenyan clothing.

Last Monday I wrote a blog post about the Dusty and Skye dolls from the 1970’s. Today I’m taking another look at Simplicity doll clothes pattern 7737, but let’s have a closer look at the Donny and Marie Osmond dolls that are displayed on the cover of this vintage pattern.

Yep, I had the Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond dolls, back in the 1970’s, and I enjoyed sewing for them as well.

But did you know that Marie Osmond is a seamstress herself? She even wrote a book called, Marie Osmond’s Heartfelt Giving: Sew and Quilt for Family and Friends.

For those of you who are a bit younger than me, you may only know Marie Osmond from daytime talk shows, but when I was a kid, she was a teenage variety show hostess. The Donny and Marie show gave us kids insight into fashion trends, popular music, and how to be cool without being obnoxious. LOL! 😀

Both Donny Osmond and Marie Osmond had this nice-kid-next-door persona, that appealed to kids and their parents (and their grandparents). So of course I had both the Donny Osmond doll and the Marie Osmond doll.

And the Simplicity doll clothes pattern 7737 was irresistible to me because it featured the drawings of dolls that looked an awful lot like Donny and Marie. So of course I had to have that pattern!

The photo shows a drawing from the cover of Simplicity doll clothes sewing pattern 7737. There's a doll that looks like a Marie Osmond doll wearing a pink evening gown with a halter bodice and a shawl. Both the shawl and the dress's skirt have a matching pink ruffle. The doll standing beside her looks like Donny Osmond, and he wears a black tuxedo with ribbon trims. These patterns are copyrighted 1976 by Simplicity.

When I was a kid, it was hard to find Barbie dolls with brown hair. Malibu Barbie was the hot item in stores, and although she had a lovely tan, her hair was platinum blond. That’s how all my Barbies looked–blond, blond, and more blond–because that was all that was available in stores out west.

But my Marie Osmond Barbie doll had beautiful brown hair, and because she was so unique, she was my favorite for quite a long stretch of time.

Now here’s another interesting tidbit of fact… If you look up “Marie Osmond doll” on eBay, you’ll discover that this lovely and talented celebrity has actually designed her own line of adorable little dolls too.

So yeah, she sings, she dances, she sews, she quilts, she writes books, and she owns a whole line of dolls that she designed herself. What an amazing lady!

  1. Chelly, very strange that you mentioned Donnie and Marie dolls, I just received
    both of them, nude, I want to make clothes for them. I have 3 of Marie’s little dolls.
    I bought them when she first started selling them. Thank you for sharing, GOD BLESS you.

    1. Watch your email, Jeretta. Remember that tiny baby doll you sent me in the mail? I’ve discovered that she can wear some of the doll clothes I’ve been making for the Elsa 6 inch doll. I’ll send a photo via email some time in the coming week.

      Cool coincidence about the Donny and Marie dolls, right? Wow!
