Magic Stay-On Dresses Suzie

Here is a very cute doll named Suzie from the Magic Stay-On Dresses line.  This doll would have come in a box with crayons.  It is not complete and is missing some of the dresses that would be colored.  The clothing is slick and is supposed to magically 'stick' to the doll.  I can't really get them to stay at all. :p  I have 18 full color outfits, 4 hats, one lonely shoe and 2 colored outfits.  This set was produced by Whitman, I can't find an exact date but 1950s era.

Lyne Roberti

This poor Movie Dressograph had some tape fix that has not aged well, causing an unsightly mark in the middle of the page.  The page features Lyne Roberti in a very stylish pose along with three outfits, a pair of shoes, two hats, and a pair of gloves.

Pink Wedding

Here's a vintage partial set from Pink Wedding.  This was part of a lot I purchased and it is in played with condition.  The dolls have some bends and the set is incomplete.  The bride has three outfits and each bridesmaid has only one dress.  This set was published by  Merrill in 1952.  The artist I believe is John Northcross.
