This wonderful Cissy has been cleaned, restrung, a bit of blush added, hip repair done to top of right leg, and her wig cleaned and styled into original style. She has lovely blue eyes and original full lashes. She has no odors and a very nice body.
She is the painted plastic type doll, not the infused Cissy. She has a few defects in her original paint on her right bottom.I have shown a picture of it. Her hips are tight as are her knees. She has no earring holes. This Cissy is wearing a tagged Cissy skirt that has the wrong label on it.
It is marked Elise, but as you can see, it is a Cissy sized skirt. I guess someone was sleeping at the assembly line one day? She is also wearing a new organdy sleeveless blouse made by me. The blouse snaps up the back with 4 square snaps. It has prong set Swarovski crystals in the front and is lined with a nylon built in camisole.
She has a new nylon cancan style slip, vintage Cissy panties with some repairs, a pair of vintage Cissy nylons with a few small holes in the toes (not seen when shoes are on), and a pair of pink vintage shoes that I added a white flower and some diamonds to. She also is wearing a darling horsehair type hat with original velvet flowers and bows. It is not a Cissy original hat, but it is a very nice hat and I do believe it may have come with another Madame Alexander doll. I added a vintage hat pin for it. Oops, forgot she also has a new pearl bracelet.Note: Because there are so many people doing repairs on these lovely dolls and I have been asked many questions, I would like to clarify a bit of the work I do. I have had training in plastic and composition repairs and have been doing them for many years. My spa treatments are done with solvent based paints that are air brushed on, the same that are used on plastic bumpers on cars. The paint is UV protected and is permanent and will not rub off. The paint is also sealed with a UV protectant sealer. It also is permanent and will not yellow or wash off. I remove the eyes through the neck opening and replace them back the same way if eyelash and eye repair is done. I do NOT split the head open, nor would I recommend it.
I try to always think of the long term effects of my repairs and fixes. As for the clothing I make, I try to make them as close to an original design as possible.
I also try to use vintage 50's fabrics as often as I can. If I do not, I will always state so.I do not photoshop or alter my pictures in any way. No smoke and mirrors, what you see is exactly what she is.
