Underwear on Basic Dolls

Cissy was sold as a basic doll in chemise, other styles of underwear were sold separately as boxed fashions.

Vintage Cissy doll by Madame Alexander #2100 – 1955-57 – The earliest chemises for the basic Cissy doll were black or white lace with satin ribbon straps and ribbon rosettes. She also wore nylon stockings and elastic-strap mules accented with a rose surrounded by the ruffle of lace. (Note that this stock number was used earlier for a doll dressed in evening gown.) There were variations of the lace used. In 1957, the chemises had longer legs created by additional lace trim.

In 1958, the chemise for the basic Cissy was changed to a pink satin fabric with a lace panel or lace trim down the front. There were several variations of this style, some with white lace and some with black.
In 1959, the chemises were once again made of lace, but instead of the ribbon rosettes of the early years, they were decorated with hot pink rosettes made of felt.

A wonderful article by Sidney Bennett and Debbie Foster shows photos of all these styles and more. You can view it here.

Sleepwear

These were all boxed fashions.

The first nightgowns for Cissy, for 1955 and into 1956, had a very low v-neck (almost to her waist) in both front and back, trimmed in lace with ribbon inserted through the lace, with matching negligees that had short puffed sleeves. Most were solid pale pink nylon, but there was some variation of fabrics and some were prints.

In 1956 and ’57, a cotton batiste nightgown with a square neckline trimmed in lace and ribbon was introduced. It came in white or various colors and prints. The matching cotton negligee was still the earlier v-neck style.

For 1957, Cissy had a pink nightie with a more modest v-neck in the front. The floral print robe had a deeper v in front, like the earlier style, but was up to her neck in the back. There was also a cotton polka dot long-sleeved robe this year that did not have a matching nightgown.
In 1958, the nightgown was nylon tricot with three rows of lace trimming a scoop neck. The matching negligee had a high neck with only two rows of lace. It was available in pink or blue, or floral print on a white background.

Cissy’s 1959 sleepwear was very different from previous years. The nightie had a white lace bodice with a solid pink skirt. The matching lace robe had elbow-length sleeves.
