Recently, I acquired a Cissy trunk set that contained numerous Cissy outfits, including this hard to find 2pc outfit from 1957. The outfit was a boxed extra and includes a navy, polka dotted, pleated skirt made of polished cotton and accented with flowers at the waist and a sheer nylon blouse accented with lace. Both pieces are tagged. NOTE: I had a really hard time deciding whether or not to sell these 2 pieces together as the condition of each is different. I finally made the decision to sell them together but it’s very important that it be understood that the blouse is NOT in as nice of condition as the skirt. SKIRT CONDITION: the skirt looks wonderful, even after all these decades! Flowers at waist do have a bit of wear from storage. BLOUSE CONDITION: I consider the blouse to be TLC, at least to some degree. Both cuffs need to be mended where the lace meets the nylon material with the right cuff having more areas in need of mending than the left (an example of the issue can be seen in the last pic); there are a few dropped or loose stitches along one of the shoulder seams (see 8th pic); buttons have some wear to the finish; the blouse has just a bit of general soil and the edging that finishes the bottom of the blouse has unraveled a bit on the front edges. Doll and shoes were used for display purposes only and are not included. This listing is for the blouse and skirt only. The vintage toys/items/dolls/clothes that I sell are NOT for children. They are for adult collectors only. Please remember that the majority of items that I sell are OLD… Some are VERY old. Unless “perfect” or “mint” is stated in the description, neither is implied and should not be expected. Unless otherwise noted in the description, all items are USED. Descriptions are based on my observations. What is important to you may be something that I do not have the knowledge to look for let alone see, so please feel free to ask questions before purchasing an item. We are a smoke-free building. We are NOT pet free. A dog and cats share our space. ODORS: Although we are smoke-free, the majority of the items that I sell were bought at estate sales or places other than a retail store and may have odors associated with those places. I try very hard to air out all items before listing them. If I detect an odor, I will state that in the listing, but my nose will not always be able to detect all odors. I must receive each item back in the same condition it was in when I sent it. Therefore all return packages must also originate from WITHIN the Unites States.
