This is one pair of handmade doll boots in old French style. They are lovely
for an antique doll. They are not suitable as toys for children. They are only
made for display .
Sizes of the boot sole: 6,5 x 2,8 cm - 2 4\8 " x 1 1\8 "
Doll foot size advice: The doll feet must be smaller than the boots.
The boots are only suitable for doll feet that are flat at the bottom.
The boots are succesfully tested on doll feet with sizes 6,2 x 3 cm - 2 4\8 "
x 1 1\8 " , so the boots will fit doll feet that have these sizes or that have
slightly smaller sizes.
Place a foot from the big toe to the heel in a caliper to measure the length
of a doll foot.
Place the widest part of a foot in a caliper to measure the width of a doll
The doll foot size advice takes into account that the doll is wearing thin
Are the boots a little too spacious? Thicker socks will help !
Boot color: dark brown
We only use natural materials to make the boots:
Leather for the boots.
Cotton tread for the edge embroidery and the laces.
Silk fiber for the pom poms.
Leather for the soles ( inside and outside ).
Acid free cardboard for the inner strengthening of the soles.
Hide glue for the glued parts of the boots.
Doll boots are small and they have a very low weight, so you can ship many
pairs in one box for the same shipping cost to save money.
The boots will be shipped together with a nice handmade cardboard box with a
small magnetic closure. This box will be protected with a second cardboard
shipping box during the shipping process. The handmade box will be a nice
storage place for your boots when they are not in use, and it can also serve as
a gift box if you want to give the boots as a present to a doll lover !
Please note that we only ship your order to the adress that you have linked to
your Etsy account.
Do you need shoes in a different size or in a different color than how they
are depicted and described in this advertisement?
• Ask for a costum order instead of buying the shoes in this advertisement.
• Think carefully beforehand about what the shoes should look like and what
sizes they should have before you request a customized order. It is important
for us that you are clear and steadfast in your wishes in order to succesfully
make a beautiful good fitting pair of shoes for you.
•Give us the dimensions of the bare feet of your doll: the length, the width
and the ankle circumference. We only accept measurements made with a vernier
caliper as this is the most reliable way of measuring. We will send pictures to
you showing how to measure the doll's feet.
• Tell us whether the doll will wear socks in these shoes, and if so, whether
these are thin or thick socks.
• Give us a clear description about what the shoes should look like. Which
model, which color, which decorations? Do you want the shoes in a specific
color? We can dye leather in the right color. You will first need to send us
real sample material in the correct color by post. Unfortunately we are unable
to copy color from photos as colors often appear different on a photo or
monitor from the real thing, creating a risk of incorrect color being created
which should be avoided.
• If we can meet your request, we will send you an Etsy advertisement for the
desired pair of shoes. This is a private advertisement on the Etsy platform
that is only visible to you and us and it is a non-binding offer. If we do not
receive an order and payment for this private advertisement within 48 hours, we
will remove it, canceling the offer.
• If you order and pay for the offer within 48 hours, then we have an
agreement for a customized order. The shoes are then made for you within 3
working days and then they are sent to the address you linked to your Etsy
account. Please note: You cannot exchange or return these shoes that have been
specially made for you.
• Finally (we are very sorry to ask this!): Do not ask for a customized order
just for fun, nor when you are not sure that you want what you ask for. We take
our work seriously and we like to make doll shoes for people who think the same
about this. It is a waste of everyone`s time if communication stops as soon as
we have responded helpfully to a request for a customized order. The person who
made the request does not benefit from this and neither do we.
