Vintage 1942 Peggy McCall Modern Fashion Doll Sewing Model Mannequin with 2 McCall dolls patterns , and a completed dress, instructions on "How to Remove Peggy's Arms", and original "McCall Tricks in Sewing For Peggy and Yourself" book. Also included is a "Susanne's Play Dress, Pattern No. 2006", with instruction sheet. This Peggy McCall Doll measures about 13 inches tall, and is made from a composition type material. The arms are made to be removed, and go back in with wooden pegs. They fit in, but may be a little loose. The doll is in very nice condition, with no breaks or repairs. However, there is some age crazing here and there, especially on the legs (photo) and on the back. There is some paint loss, paint flaking and paint cracking here and there, and the left arm has quite a bit of paint flaking (photo). The face of the doll is lovely. The fingernails are painted red, and I don't know if this nail polish was original or was added?
One McCall pattern included is the Nurses Uniform # 6600-1, "For Peggy the Modern Fashion Model". It has all 9 pieces, which have been cut apart and folded up. They are in nice condition, with a minor tear on one piece. This pattern also has the "Cut and Sew Guide" included. Another McCall pattern is the Princess Dress # 6600-2. It has all 6 pieces, which have been cut apart and folded up. I see some tears and some clear tape on some of the pieces. The "Cut and Sew Guide" is missing on this pattern. I believe that this pattern was used to make the dress that comes with this doll. Both McCall pattern envelopes are dated 1942, and both envelopes are in nice condition, with some age yellowing. The "McCall Tricks in Sewing for Peggy and Yourself" booklet is 12 pages, not including the front and back cover. It is in very nice condition, with a few minor wrinkles from being packed away, but no damage. The "How to remove Peggy's Arms" instruction sheet is marked "Dritz-Traum Company, Incorporated, New York City, N.Y.". The "Susanne's Play Dress" pattern no. 2006 is a printed on paper pattern that has been cut apart. The paper is heavier than normal dress maker's pattern paper. I got it with this Peggy McCall manikin from a local estate so I will include it. It is marked on the instruction sheet "Susanne's Fashion Show - Copyright by Latexture Products, Inc.". This Susanne's Play Dress" pattern does not come in a pattern envelope. I do Not have the stand for this unusual Peggy McCall composition sewing doll.
