The tulle layers have some holes stitched together but does not detract from the gown at all. The tulle hems are not totally even, as found.
Certain things have been replaced that the original gown would have had, her silk taffeta undies and slip, lavender "gloves". Her silver shoes and stockings are commercially made for Cissy dolls. Also replaced are her silver and rhinestone bracelets, one clear and one with purple rhinestones, her circlet rhinestone earrings, and her hair bow. Her hair seems to be in the original style, very gorgeous!Her sleep eyes are very pretty with full lashes and work well. Please see all of the photos and feel free to ask me any questions you may have. This doll is in very nice condition and very pretty, even with the flaws mentioned, the dress is very pretty and very rare if you are a collector.
