The Sew-Easy by Advance doll clothes patterns in my collection are among some of my all-time favorites because they’re just… well… SO vintage!

The projects in this Advance 2895 envelope have inspired me to create new patterns, they have taught me techniques I’d never seen before, and I’ve written articles on this website, sharing the tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way.

If you’d like to learn along with me, click on the article title, from the bulleted list below, that appeals to you most. These articles all have something to do with the Sew-Easy by Advance “Trousseau Wardrobe” 2895:

Most of the commercial patterns I display and talk about here on ChellyWood.com are also available for sale on eBay. However, if you’ve never purchased a pattern on eBay before, it’s a good idea to read the article I wrote called, “Tips for Buying Used Doll Clothes Patterns on eBay.” It will save you time, money, and will likely prevent buyer’s remorse.

And by the way, if you use the links I’ve provided to make your eBay purchase, this website will receive a small commission, which helps fund the ChellyWood.com website, so I can continue to provide you with all the free patterns and tutorial videos offered here.

  1. I’m surprised I don’t have this one in my stash. Shirtwaist dresses were so popular at the time and view #3 is perfect! Also, does anyone think of Princes Diana’s wedding when they look at that bridal gown? We always say. Don’t throw it away, it will come back in style again. Maybe her designer saw this pattern as a child! Thanks for sharing this one, Chelly. I just might have to look for it.

  2. I have this pattern. Mine was also purchased cut and a few pieces missing. I got it with 3 others from same company. I have #9938, 9939 and 2899 (for Ken).

    1. Even if you get one that’s already cut, I just think it’s neat to see how vintage patterns were pieced together. I learn a lot from these old patterns.

  3. I have recently picked up a few patterns off the internet (and all seem to be vintage) because my oldest granddaughter is starting to get into Barbie and I thought I’d make her some clothes for them. In looking through your site ,I see that they “remodeled” the body, it’s now bigger than the dolls I played with as a girl in the 60’s.

    1. It’s not that modern Barbies’ bodies are “bigger,” per se, but they have different shapes than they used to. There’s “Petite Barbie,” “Tall Barbie,” and “Curvy Barbie,” but even the modern “standard Barbie” has different hip, waist, and bust measurements than the original Barbie did.
