Madame Alexander Cissette in a pretty floral outfit

Let's take a break from the "for sale" listings and look at a pretty piece of eye candy that I have no intention of selling: a beautiful 1957 or 1958 Madame Alexander Cissette, one of my "project dolls" whose outfit I put together piece by piece.

This ensemble started with shoes. I bought a Cissette doll on eBay from a local doll store, and they lost one of her shoes, so they gave me a pair that didn't match her dress: cream shoes with green felt lining.

The next piece I acquired was a green felt jacket tagged "Cissette," but I no longer consider that part of the outfit because the dress is far cuter without it.

The dress features a beautiful drop waist, puff sleeves, square neckline, and a pretty white cotton print with green and blue floral wreathes. The correct 1950s vintage Cissette undies, half slip, and stockings complete the outfit.

The doll who wears it is lovely — a pretty blonde with perfect ruby lips, perfect hair, and original rhinestone drop earrings.

There's been a few times I've considered selling her, but as soon as I take her out and look her over I change my mind.

Isn't she lovely?
