For us a joy to make and give; for our American Girl friends, a joy to wear and share. You are buying the pattern only, not the finished items.
Educational: One of my fondest memories is of putting together new outfits from separates (ie skirts, tops, jackets, jeans, etc.) for my dolls. It was a great way to learn how to do this for myself. I am now doing this with my daughter with her clothes. We are having so much fun. Now she is getting better at it than I am. Recently we had an outfit of two solid colors. We wanted something to tie it all together. She thought and then said, "I know" and ran out of the room. She came back with a necklace with those two colors. This is a fantastic pattern to teach how to do this by making one of each piece out of coordinating fabrics and then mixing and matching. Think garananamils but with way more cool!
SHIPPING and HANDLING 10/22 through 9 / 2023 price is $7.00 for the lower 48 states. Alaska and Hawaii shipping and handling price is $8.00. I have nothing against your state but it costs a little more to ship to you! Thanks for understanding. Contact me for the possibility of international shipping. Shipping prices have been increasing so rapidly and changing shipping policies have made it unsustainable for me to continue adjusting the price in the listing description. The time period is when the shipping description was last updated. If it is currently later than the time period, shipping may be higher than stated in the description. If you would like to know the exact shipping before purchase, please contact me. I will usually ship within two business days of receiving payment. I package very carefully, usually in a plastic bag to keep it dry, should the package get wet. Then in a box or bubble envelope. I include a packing slip in case the package ends up in the dead letter file. I use USPS tracking labels. I have not had a package that was not delivered. I will use recycled packaging when available. The handling is to cover my shipping costs such as gas, printer paper and ink, packing materials, bubble mailing envelopes, etc. Please email me if you have any questions. Please take a look at my other listings. Thank you for your interest. I ship to the address provided. I do my best to verify an address is deliverable before shipping. It is your responsibility to provide the address you want your item shipped to.
NO SHIPPING if picked up locally in Cedar Rapids or CRandIC corridor.
