VINTAGE MATTEL BLACK AFRICAN AMERICAN CHATTY CATHY IN PEPPERMINT STICK OUTFIT. She has her Third Place win ribbon with her. She was on display for quite sometime. I think, though, that it may clean up if run through the washer. I can't guarantee it though.
There are some other flaws with the outfit as well. The hem fringe is sticking out on the one sleeve, the lace has a tear on one of the pinafore straps, the socks have some damage and the back of one shoe is split. The doll itself looks very nice to me. She has all of her lashes and her hair is thick.She has her string and it pulls out and retracts. It is a shame - she actually starts to talk, but then makes this horrible rattling/vibrating sound. If you have any questions, please ask.

Some may require additional clean up upon arrival, although, I do try to clean items up when I feel that it won't risk harming the item.
Sometimes I do miss spots though. I do strive to note any and all flaws, but I don't always catch everything.
Sometimes if my children interrupt during listing, I may even miss something major, it does not happen often, but has on the rare occasion.
