This is a C1956 Madame Alexander 20 Inch Cissy Doll in her Pink Stripe Shirtwaist Dress. Cissy is a very clean 20 inch jointed hard plastic doll with jointed knees, and vinyl arms jointed at the elbow. She is lovely with a clean body, tight joints, arms hold a pose, pretty face with some blush to her cheeks, blonde wig close to the original set, and bright red lips. Her blue sleep eyes do not close quite all the way (about half way) and her left eyelash is missing some lashes in the middle (about 1/4 of the eyelash). Her pink and white striped tagged shirtwaist dress is in beautiful clean condition, but has a rust spot to the front left bodice, back of the left sleeve, and to the back of the bodice. The two rust spots at the back of the bodice also have a hole to the center of each. I would assume the spots were obtained from a metal doll stand. The rest of the dress is beautifully clean and bright. Cissy is also wearing a pink nylon and tulle petticoat (the waist elastic has stretched and is now pinned in the back), white lace trimmed taffeta panties with somewhat stretched waist elastic, perfect seamed hose and Cissy black elastic heels (probably not her original but they are for Cissy). The black elastic is nice and tight. The black contour waist belt has some missing flock which is common. I am including a pair of never-used vintage cotton white gloves that do not exactly fit her but look great held in her hand in vignette fashion. She does not have a hat or box. She is really lovely.
