I was able to buy this book from the autors Eveline Teyssier and Anne-Marie Porot and it is a great help to me to identify outfits, even though I only know a little french, but google translate is there
These are my Bella Tressy 1st version dolls, at least I believe they are all Bella dolls. I have however had my doubts about the doll to the left and thought she might be a 2nd version AC Tressy but then the make-up is very much like Bella Tressy's. I can't remember where I bought her. They were sold with the same dress and key as the first 4 AC Tressy dolls were.
Dette er første version Bella Tressy dukker, i det mindste tror jeg alle 3 er men jeg har haft mine tvivl mht dukken til venstre. Hun kan være en AC Tressy 2. version, men make-up'en ligner Bella Tressy dukkernes. Desværre kan jeg ikke huske, hvor jeg har hende fra. De blev solgt med samme kjole og nøgle som de første 4 versioner af AC Tressy.

1965 Bellita without growing hair and with 2 different hair length and colors
I have read somewhere on the internet something a French collector told about this dress, it might be the dress Bellita was wearing when she was sold as Ariane in Monoprix shops.
Ariane from 1966/67 with original outfit and stand
I got this with the blonde Ariane doll, the pattern is for Hilda, she is similar to Ariane and Bellita, she was offered by "Punch" I think the translation states it's prison work but the french collector may be able to explain this to me. I don't know if the
1967 3rd version Bella Tressy without grow hair function.
Versionen fra 1967 uden mekanismen, der kan få håret til at gro.
I got the doll to the left with the Stewardess outfit, I thought she was just like the other 3rd version Tressy dolls I have but it turns out she has no painted eyelashes. I found one more on ebay.fr so it's not a one of a kind but she was made this way. She is not the 1977 version, she has the same face as early Bella Tressy dolls.
This Stewardess outfit is from 1974, the shoes are newer, I believe they belong to Spice Girls
1967 1st version of Marilyn, the french Mary Make-up doll. Første udgave af Marily, den franske Mary Make-up
I got the grow hair version of Marilyn now too, it's the doll to the left.
This is Tressy Cils from 1968-69
Tressy Cils dolls in unknown outfits, the bue dress to the right is homemade I'm sure but very nice.
1967-1969 Snoukey by Bella. Finally I succeeded in buying not just one but two Snoukey dolls from France.
1967-1969 Snoukey. They are both 2nd version dolls with bendable legs.
1977 Tressy with grow hair function and original dress. The boots she has borrow from Barbie.
This is what this doll was sold with, I believe in 1978
1977 Tressy to the left it's the grow hair version and to the right it's the one without grow hair.
Another Bella Tressy dolll without grow hair function, this time a blonde. I just learned that they are from 1977-1978 and I believe I have seen the blonde on ebay with grow hair too. In my Tressy book I see that she is either called Sophie by Miss Helen, She is an cheaper doll.
I believe these could be Bella Tressy 2nd version original outfits.
Jeg tror dette kan være originale kjoler til Bella Tressy 2nd version.
1976 31-07 Bella Tressy
This version of Bella Tressy is called 31-14 and was made from 1979.
Denne version hedder 31-14 og blev lavet fra 1979.
2 Bouclette dolls from 1983
The Bouclette dolls are wearing original Bella outfits. I have learned that they have their own range of outfits and I don't know if these are some of them.
I'm told that this is a rare version of a Bella Tressy outfit called Nightclub, I believe it's the 1967 version. I got it in a Barbie lot from France.
Jeg har fået at vide at dette er en sjælden version af et Bella Tressy sæt som hedder Nightclub, jeg tror det er 1967 udgaven. Jeg har fået det i et Barbie lot fra Frankrig.
This is a Bella outfit from 1967 called Aurora and I got it with the Nightclub outfit.

This Bella outfit is called Wild Enchantment and I got it in a Barbie lot from France. The Palitoy version of this called the same but the AC version is called Serendipity.
Wild Enchantment er navnet på dette Bellasæt, som jeg har fået i et Barbie lot fra Frankrig. Palitoy udgaven hedder det samme mens AC udgaven hedder Serendipity.
From the same lot I got these pieces of a 1971 Bella outfit, missing are a pair of hotpants and a vest in the same fabric as the skirt, a white vinyl belt and short white boots.
Fra samme lot fik jeg disse dele af et Bella sæt fra 1971, der mangler hotpants og vest i samme stof som nederdelen, et hvidt vinylbælte og hvide, korte støvler.
I bought this outfit from the original owner. It's is from 1968 and is called Footing. The picture in the catalogue shows the coat without the fake fur on the sleeves but these are actually loose cuffs and the owner told me they were part of the outfit when she got it as a little girl.
Dette er et sæt fra 1968 som hedder Footing. Jeg har købt det af den oprindelige ejer. På billeder fra katalog vises frakken uden pels forneden på ærmerne. Det er faktisk løse dele, som kan fjernes og den oprindelige ejer siger, at det var med sættet da hun fik det som barn.
From the same owner I got this wonderful outfit called Premiere Bal from 1966.

This Bella wedding outfit is called Mariee and is from 1966. The veil is not correct.

This seems to be a variation of this dress from 1976, the ones in the book is in different fabric, this is indian cotton and has an attached cotton under skirt
This outfit is by Bella and is called Charlotte. The same outfit in a blue version is shown in the 1968 Schildkröt outfit for Gaby/Kessy called Hübsch ins Bett which means Beautiful in Bed. There should be some accessories here I believe.
I got this from France so it must be the Bella version of Boutique Shopping, on a homepage I found the outfit and the owner says that there should be stockings and sandals and some bags to this outfit but don't say what color or shape they should be.
Quartier Latin fra 1965
I was told this was Ostalgie for Steffi from DDR but now I see it all the time for sale for Belle Tressy so I believe it is from France.
