PART #3 Option D - PATTERNS for Dress, Purse, and Jacket for 18" CDH "Three Blind Mice..." Dolls
This item will be reposted immediately after an order is placed to enable additional orders for this clothing option.
The item for sale here is the PATTERN with instructions for sewing your own Dress, Purse, and Jacket for the CDH Mouse and Rat Dolls (18-21 inches tall) - the pictures above are only a representation of the finished product you will achieve by sewing these patterns (embellishment stickers are not included).
This dress fits a waistline of 8" and the length from the bottom of the waistband is 9-1/2" to 10". The dress is designed to avoid the shoulder area because the arms on the CDH Mouse and Rat Dolls pull tight to the body with virtually no available shoulder. The dress is a full-bodied dress that will form a full circle when the doll is sitting.

The warranty date will commence on the delivery date of your article, and I will consider extra time as valid if the article was stored for the purpose of becoming a "gift" and not opened or used until a later time [birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, (etc.) would qualify] (rather than depending on the purchase date).

After 3 months, with your return of a damaged doll or clothing, replacement cost for repairs to a doll or clothing will be handled on a reasonable basis.
The following are offered as examples of what you could expect to be charged to repair a damaged doll (specific damage may require adjustments to these general estimates):
- To replace the entire doll only will be $35 + $8.00 S&H
(damaged doll must be returned to substantiate the claim)
- To replace an entire dress will be charged at $2.00 less than a comparable
original dress curently listed on this web site plus the currently-listed shipping for
that item (damaged dress must be returned to substantiate the claim)
