In the Cissy files book, it states that this outfit is a very sought after dress in a modified shirtwaist design with tiny pintucks on the front bodice. The dress features vertical Val lace and an attached velvet ribbon. Rhinestones accent the notched sleeves and are placed in a vertical pattern down the center of the bodice. The Cissy files state this dress is hard to find and the hat is rare.
Her dress has three-quarter length sleeves. She has her flocked and tulle slip.Cissy has green eyes and red hair. Her eyes stick a little, they open fine but need to shake her a little/gently to get them to pop open. The shoes have the elastic straps, no stretch in the elastic to the shoes or around the tops of her stockings but the stockings stay up just fine. Please look at the picture of the shoes. The heels and soles are scratched up some. The elastic around the top of the slip has no stretch and her panties no stretch around the top. Both the slip and panties stay up the fine. The top of the hat looks faded. Her dress is a pale purple. However I looked it over and the color is the same light purple all over.
I showed it to my sister in law and she said if it was faded the fabric in the hem would be brighter. The hem has the same light color as the rest of the dress. Please look at photos for full description. This doll is from an estate of a large doll collector. She kept her dolls behind glass in a room with blinds drawn.Again, if you have any questions please ask.
