Terms and Conditions

When purchasing an item through the Historically Dressed web site, you agree that you have read and agree to all the terms and conditions as represented on this page. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.


The items sold on Historically Dressed may be for dolls, but they are for adult collectors only, and are not toys. They contain very small componants that could be a choking hazard, and so are not suitable for use by children.

Items offered by Historically Dressed are individually handmade. As a result, it is possible that there may be slight variations from the item photographed for the web site (such as a different placement of the design of the fabric, based on where the pattern pieces were laid out).

I do my best to capture accurate colors by checking on several different screens and comparing to the original, but all monitors can be a little different, and it is possible the color may be slightly different in real life than what you view on your particular monitor or screen.

Dark or very saturated color fabrics (such as black or red) have the potential to leave color on a doll's body, especially ball-jointed dolls, and especially if left on the body long-term. I always pre-wash and dry any dark or saturated fabrics I use to help minimize this, and where possible, use white or light-colored lining fabrics, but there is no guarantee, and it is wise not to leave dark fabrics directly against your doll's skin for long periods of time. Historically Dressed is not responsible for any color transfer from fabrics to your doll due to leaving the clothing or accessories on the doll over time.

Some accessories, such as necklaces, may have componants that could potentially leave a scratch on a resin or similar doll if mishandled. Please use caution when using such accessories. Historically Dressed is not responsible for any scratching or damage to the doll caused by accessories.

In order to place an order with Historically Dressed, you must register with Historically Dressed, and provide your address information. This information will be kept private and used only for shipping orders you may place. Historically Dressed will never share any of your information with third parties. If at any time you would like your information removed from Historically Dressed, please contact me and I will remove your information.


At present, the only payment form accepted is PayPal. Layaway is not available at the present time, but if is something enough people want, I would consider adding the option. Please send me a note if you'd like to see a layaway option added.
