This is a Madame Alexander Cissy Doll in 1950s Vintage White Satin Wedding Gown Veil Stunning This 20 inch doll is a hard plastic and vinyl Cissy doll that has been redressed. Cissy has a clean hard plastic jointed body with jointed vinyl arms. Her side part blonde wig is dressed in an elaborate shoulder length curled hairstyle with a curl at her forehead. She has blue sleep eyes with full lashes, full eye paint, high color cheek blush (the infused kind I believe), and geranium pink lips. She is worthy of an elaborate costume and has been redressed as a bride. Madame Alexander loved Cissy dolls dressed as a bride. This gown was made in the 1950s perhaps using one of the many patterns that were produced for Cissy doll clothing. This is NOT a newly made gown using old fabrics and was specifically made for Cissy during the 1950s. I bought a huge lot of 1950s mother made Cissy clothing stitched by the same person. She was an exceptional seamstress with attention to detail, quality and finishing techniques. All of the clothing outfits were made of beautiful quality fabrics. She spent much time, money, skill and energy into the wardrobe outfits. This beautiful and clean gown is one of the designs she made for Cissy. The gown consists of cream white silk satin (original color not aged) over-dress that is ruched swag draped embellished with faux pearls and white satin ribbon bows over a matching cream white silk satin skirt that has a 7 inch white tulle attached ruffle. The tulle and satin show along the hem past the ruched swag draping. The back of the gown is plain with a longer hemline. I might add that all the white satin seams are bound so there are no raw edges. Unbelievable! The gown design is princess styling with bust darts, short cap sleeves and round neckline ending in a V in back. The neckline, sleeves and Juliet veil cap are trimmed in tatting type lace. Her stiff horsehair petticoat has a 4 inch hem ruffle and I may add that all the edges are bound here as well particularly the hem. Unbelievable! There is some exceptional hand hemming on the gown too with precision stitch placement. Underneath, she is wearing white taffeta panties, long seamed hose in excellent condition, and New Replacement cream elastic high heels. Her accessories include her original rhinestone earrings, faux pearl necklace, bridal bouquet consisting of white roses, tulle and long white satin ribbon streamers. The chapel length long cream tulle veil (no holes or damage to the tulle) has a Juliet cap embellished with aurora borealis sequins and lace rosettes at the front. One layer of the tulle can go over her face as well. Everything is in exceptional condition. This gown is a masterpiece as you can see. Cissy is stunning.
