Cissy Doll Shoe Makeover
I have these 2 pair of shoes to fit my Cissy doll.
Compared to Cissy's beautiful clothes, they're kind of blah.
On eBay I saw these made by:
They have all different colors and styles.
SO, I decided to try to make some myself.
I cut off the straps on my shoes.
I laid the shoe on some paper to
make a pattern.
Checking the fit.
I cut out some felt with my pattern.
The felt protects Cissy's stockings from snags.
I added a decorative strap and hot-glued it underneath.
Oh, and I also made a couple handbags.
This black envelope bag.
And this pink clutch.

Dressing up Cissy
I was looking through my doll clothes for
things that might work for Cissy.
This dress looks AMAZING on Cissy.
It is actually an American Girl Doll-size Dress
Here it is on my Molly, sweet, but...
I think it looks perfect on Cissy.
I just tightened the sash and VOILA!
I am considering actually fitting it to Cissy.
Next I pulled out this leopard print coat.
When I first got this coat in a lot of misc. doll clothes
I thought it was an AG size coat, but
I think it was meant for a fashion doll like Cissy.
I decided Cissy needed a hat for this coat, so I whipped this up.
In that same lot of doll clothes was this knit sweater.
I think it looks great on Cissy.
I found this partially finished hat from a long ago project
and decided to finish it for Cissy.
The necklace is rhinestones and belonged to my grandmother.
This pink prom dress I had ordered for another doll.
