Ginny arrived filthy but otherwise in good shape, except for her wig. "Wig" is really an overstatement; it was more like a few strands of hair clinging to her head! I made her a new wig from strawberry blond mohair. The original wig looked like it was lemony-blond, but the color I chose matches her eyebrows almost perfectly. After cleaning and re-wigging Ginny looks close to mint. Her sapphire blue eyes stick open but they are easily opened and closed manually. Her head-turning walker mechanism works perfectly.

Ginny gets ready for the day in her handmade seersucker pajamas and flannel robe. These are actually sewn by hand, not machine-sewn, and the technique is exquisite. I got these in a big lot of beautifully handmade Ginny clothes. The pajamas' elastic has age spots I couldn't remove.

|Dress #64 of 1955|
Ginny is all ready for her big day in her gorgeous bridal gown, #64, of 1955. This is satin with lace overlay. I made her a lace and tulle veil and bouquet from vintage velvet flowers and gave her new gold satin ballet flats to complete the ensemble. The dress is just pristine and it is tagged with crisp tag. It does not look as if it were ever used. I added a pink modern plastic wedding cake to her wedding set.
