This is a beautiful 1960 Belle of the Ball Cissy doll by Madame Alexander. She needs the help of a good seamstress to restore the gown and the slip to its original glory. Once that is done she will make a stunning example of one of Madame Alexander’s most desirable Cissy dolls. The photos show the destroyed layers of tulle and netting on her skirt section as well as broken tulle on the sleeves and on the bodice. Cissy’s outfit will need a full restoration, but I know there are expert seamstresses out there who can and should tackle this project to bring her back to her full glory. The crinoline fabric on the slip is also fragile and is cracking in several places so replacing that will also be desirable. I also found the purple ribbon that will recreate her original hairbow which is included. Cissy has so much going for her. Her hair, although a bit mussed, is still in its original set. She wears her original earrings. She has no seam splits and is strung snugly. Her face coloring is nice and clear and her eyes are blue. She wears her original panties with only very slightly loose elastic at the waist, stockings that seem to have a yellowish tone to them so I don’t know if they are original but she came wearing them, and her original lilac strappy heels with elastic that is still pretty snug. The best part of this doll besides her beauty is the wonderful condition of the floral swag and shoulder bouquets of pink roses and white buttercups. The gown still has its original Cissy tag. She also wears her original lilac mitts/gauntlets. I seem to recall that she came to me wearing a clear rhinestone ring as there is a darkening on her ring finger but it is no longer there. There are more photos available if you need more detail photos of the gown. The free listing tool.
