Every time I look at the pictures on the cover of my Simplicity 7737 doll clothes pattern envelope, I remember the little sewing room my mother and I shared, when I was in junior high and high school. I made every single outfit offered on this pattern by the time I was 16, and those pants suits — the ones that are designed like a pair of mechanic’s overalls — holy smokes those things were hard to make!
But it’s those tricky patterns that really take your sewing game to the next level. Keep that in mind, if you’re working with a pattern that seems to be giving you trouble!
If you’d like to learn a few new lessons that I’ve passed along over the years, try clicking on one of the article titles in the bulleted list below. Each of these articles talks about the Simplicity 7737 doll clothes pattern, which was designed to fit not just Barbie and Ken, but also Skye and Dusty, as well as Donny and Marie Osmond dolls!

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.
