Madame Alexander got to pull out all the stops once or twice in a doll season. Usually, each year there is at least one show stopper that encapsulates all that we love about the magic of Alexander. Cissy in this No. 2282 certainly has that WOW factor in spades. Painted tulle was a fashion trend of mid-century fashion - and very popular for prom dresses, weddings and evening gowns. Not particularly practical, these would be the type of events that you would want something very special that most likely may never be worn again. Cissy, the 21" fashion doll that was always on-trend, came out in 1958 with this fantasy gown of amazing beauty.
