Do you see that blue price tag of 50 cents on my Simplicity 5731 Tressy doll clothes pattern? That’s literally how much I paid for these patterns, and this pattern set was cut, but only missing one piece; it was in a nearly-perfect envelope; and the directions were all there, in tact, and in perfect condition. Oooh! What a find!
I must have had a little “sewing angel” over my shoulder the day I drove to the second hand store and bought this Simplicity 5731 doll clothes pattern set for Tressy.
If you don’t know who Tressy is and you’d like to learn more about this doll, or if you’re a Tressy collector and you’d like to read about the projects I’ve made with this pattern — or maybe you sew for Barbie and you’d like to know if the Tressy patterns will fit her, I’ve got a bunch of articles I’ve written and published about this classy pattern!

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.
