All dolled up!
In lovely condition, this Vogue Jill is a bent knee walker who still has very movable legs. Her head still turns when her legs move in a walking pose. She has gorgeous blue eyes that open and close on their own and her arms move up and down and hold their position well. Both "pearl" earrings remain intact.
Jill's tagged Vogue Yellow Taffeta Party Dress (#7416) has a yellow floral lined skirt and a taffeta bodice with little round pearlized buttons that coordinate with her earrings. She still has what is either a matching hankie (or perhaps a purse) that can tie to her wrist (rarely found with the dress anymore). Her dress is in Excellent Condition, no problems found. The dress is lined but still looks best with one of her fairly stiff slips underneath. (Not available in this listing.) Her auburn hair has held its style well and her yellow straw hat still has the original sprig of green leaves. A newer ribbon tie has been added to the hat (can be easily removed if desired) and a hatpin helps hold the hat in place.
Jill is pictured in this lovely spring /summer dress and hat on page 213 of the Vogue Dolls Identification Encyclopedia by Izen & Stover.
Jill comes with her pair of panties that are most likely original to her and included are a pair of white slip on shoes. The pretty Blue Gown and Robe with a flocked floral print and pink ribbon ties are as pretty as new but do have areas where the lace is separating from the fabric. This gown and robe are no longer tagged and it appears that Jill may have borrowed this from her little sister Ginny's Trousseau but it surely fits her nicely and is lovely on her. A like gown and robe (or Peignoir Set) are shown in Ginny's 1957 Trousseau Chest on page 143 of the Vogue Doll's Identification Encyclopedia by Izen & Stover.
Jill by Vogue is Ginny and Ginnette's older sister . She is 10 1/2" tall and is marked: Jill, Vogue Dolls Inc., Made in U.S.A., © 1957 She is living in a non-smoking home.
