In the 1930s the country was in the midst of the great depression and morale was low. In 1934 a young girl named Shirley Temple had her first movie role. Audiences loved her and she starred in movie after movie all with happy endings, a much needed diversion from the difficult economic times. In the 1930s, the Ideal Toy Company started making composition Shirley Temple dolls. Again in the late 1950s they made Shirley Temple dolls, this time made from vinyl. The vinyl dolls were made in sizes: 12", 15", 17" & 19". I have a large assortment of patterns available for all of these sized dolls.
This pattern was originally created in March 23, 1957. The copyright for this pattern has expired and it entered the public domain Jan 1, 1986.
Current Shipping Special: US SHIPPING is FREE!!! It helps me if you pay for all of your purchases at one time (Paypal charges a per transaction fee, so it saves me money if you can pay for them all at once.) Remember, you can purchase any number of patterns and US shipping is FREE regardless of my cost!!!
I SHIP WORLDWIDE!!!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (including Canada) is the actual cost. Shipping is calcuated by weight and each pattern weights something different. Most orders will fit into a Flat Rate envelope, so that is typically the maximum you will pay. As of January 2013 a Flat Rate envelope is $23.95 to most locations. In the case of very large orders or several doll clothing patterns, it could be more. If you are concerned about shipping and would like an exact quote for multiple items, then please email me a list of the patterns you are interested in purchasing.
I do combine International orders to save you on the shipping costs. In order to receive your shipping discount, you can send me a payment request through eBay when you are done shopping, or just wait. I send combined invoices through eBay on a daily basis with the discounted shipping.
All shipments are automatically insured!!! I guarantee your package will arrive or I will reship it at my cost. Remember international shipments (including Canada) take longer to arrive. Occasionally this can even be 6-8 weeks.
I always try to ship as soon as possible. My handling time is 1 business day (business days are Monday through Friday except for holidays when the post office is closed.) I live on the west coast and do my eBay work first thing in the morning - if your payment is in by 8am, then your order will ship that day.
I guarantee the quality of my copies for as long as I am selling on eBay - not just a few days or a week, but for as long as I am here!!! So, you can buy with confidence.
I absolutely guarantee that my copies are the BEST QUALITY you will find on eBay. My copies are clear and readable. If you ever find a piece of a pattern that isn't clear, I will remake it for you (at my expense, of course.)
