It is factory made, though, by some doll clothing company active during the Cissy era. Has a sweet little rosette at the bustline.
The blue ribbon straps show some wear and seem a little long, but that allows the teddy to not be too tight in the crotch. The rest of the teddy is excellent. Cissy is wearing a pair of Doll Secrets "Better than Vintage" seamed stockings and vintage blue Dolshoe high heels with rhinestone detail. These shoes are very hard to find in blue. She is also wearing pearl drop earrings and a pearl necklace with box clasp.
Cissy is 20 inches tall and is made of hard plastic with vinyl arms. She has joints at the head, shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. There are no splits or cracks in her hard plastic or any issues with her vinyl save a very small pin prick on her right forearm. I think this is visible in one of the pictures if you enlarge it. Cissy has some original blush remaining on her hands and knees and very little, if any, on her face.
However, the background color on her face is so nice I never wanted to have blushing added. Her eyes are predominantly blue with maybe a "tad" of green. Her brush eyelashes are the original ones.
Her eyes open and close well, but if she has been in a lying position for any length of time, she might require a little shake to open them. Her wig has had a professional styling in the past, and she has developed some fly-aways over time. If you removed the present tie that is in place and re-tied the curls, you could bring in some of the loose hairs.There is a little spot on the left side of her wig where just a little bit of the wig cap is showing. The auburn color is such a nice shade. Her stringing is good; joints work well; arms are tight. Cissy has some neck rubs that I would call "light" and have included a picture. They are pretty much all the way around, but have never been an issue with me. Just be aware that they are there and may be able to be removed.
There are also the typical light rubs at the inside of her legs at the top. Hardly any painted Cissy dolls escaped developing those. This Cissy is very easy on the eyes and would look great in any tagged outfit or otherwise. She even looks good on display as she is.I don't think I have missed anything in describing her, but if you have questions, please let me know. Additional pictures can be provided upon request.
