Many times the velvet is shredded. Stocking and bloomers are fine. As for this doll no problems, no cracks or splits and wonderful hair. Looking above her left eyebrow there is some black lines, don't know what they are, but they are there. Netting kind of hides them though.
I know I just tore this doll apart but she really is a fantastic looking doll. Her stringing is good and tight. The item "MADAME ALEXANDER vtg Cissy Walking the Dog no dog/perfect velvet skirt/ great" is in sale since Friday, March 1, 2019.
