Today’s Friday Girl is my American Character Tressy. All our other Tressy dolls are the British made Palitoy ones but this one I bought from eBay in my early collecting days. She has the AC mark and the “V” legs which means she is the first edition Tressy from 1964. As you can see she is not in perfect condition. Her hair has been trimmed at the front so she is not as glamorous as her Palitoy sisters but I have done my best to make it look tidy.
Tressy is wearing a genuine Tressy outfit called “In The Office”. This is actually a Palitoy outfit not an American Character one but the other girls are OK with her wearing it.
The shopping bag is a vintage one that I had as a child. I am not quite sure where it came from. It may be from a generic outfit because we did not buy a lot of authentic Barbie or Sindy outfits and never even saw any in the shops for Tammy or Tressy.
