This darling little socialite is a Vogue Ginny BKW (bent knee walker) wearing a tagged 1956 Formals #6062. The outfit is meant to be for a SLW (straight leg walker) doll, but we bought her from the original owner and she didn't know anything about the outfit being changed.
As you can see, Ginny's eyebrows have some rubs. She has a beautiful wavy blond wig that goes perfectly with her formal gown. Her hair may have been cut but if so it was done well, and the length suits her.
As far as I can tell, Ginny has all of her original outfit except for her pink tulle wrap and her black velvet hat. Her tagged dress is in perfect condition, and the taffeta on both the dress and the bloomers is crispy mint. The bloomers do have stretched elastic. Underneath the bloomers she wears what I believe must be the standard Ginny undies, so she may have been a nude doll that was bought and dressed (which would explain the different year on the outfit).
I believe Ginny's shoes are also original. They are black satin ballerina slippers with fuzzy bottoms. They are in great condition too, and the fuzzy bottoms are perfectly intact.
