I love the design, especially the Troll doll. It arrived earlier then expected. Only problem is maybe it was a bit too rushed in sending as some of the glued items didn't hold. I had to re-glue battery pocket and some of the garland. It was also much larger in size then I was expecting. I ordered a medium, but it fits more like a large. I wished I ordered a small instead.

I apologize for the glue letting go. I can assure you when I sent it, it was stuck well. I let all sweaters sit overnight before shipping and check them over just for this reason. Unfortunately, sometimes the glue comes loose. As far as the size I err on the side of caution. These are recycled sweaters and as you know sweaters come in all shapes and sizes. In the future it might help to know if a customer wants it form fitting or loose. If you shop with me again, I will give you a $10 credit towards your next purchase. Thank you for your honest review

About

Upcycled and Recycled super comfy clothes! Sweater Coat, Tunics, Formal Clothing. Everything is one of a kind. Fantastic Ugly Christmas Sweaters

One wonderful day I stumbled across Etsy and saw a coat designed by Enlightened Platypus. It was amazing! I purchased a serger and taught myself how to make these wonderful creations. I am constantly looking for new creative items to add to my shop.

I have now developed a passion for Ugly Christmas Sweaters. I spend many hours from idea conception, to pattern making and finally making the sweater. My designs are usually quite intricate and involved. I don't just throw a bunch of "stuff" on and call it good. To me, each sweater is a masterpiece that I enjoy creating.

When I am not sewing I spend my time gardening and helping take care of my adorable granddaughter and my elderly parents.

Refunds and Exchanges
Before I will exchange ANYTHING, you and I must touch base! I will only take back something that has never been worn or washed. I will not take back any item that has been on reserve or custom ordered. No exceptions...sorry. This has to happen within 3 days of receiving it. If I have taken up the sleeves, made them longer or altered it in any way for you, It is not returnable. If I have created a custom order for you it is also not returnable. Sometimes custom pieces can be completed quickly and sometimes they take a bit longer. Please be patient :) Shipping costs are not refundable. I want you to love your new piece of wearable art. I want you to feel like you have stepped into one of the magical stories that inspired their creation. I understand also that sometimes the fit is not quite right. If so I will be happy to take back something for exchange. If you need to have a credit with my shop I will gladly keep track of it for you. Also, If you want to keep it looking great you need to hand wash in cold water and a little bit of mild soap and lay flat to dry. If you put it into a washer and dryer you do so at your own risk. If there is no wool in it you might be able to on a gentle cycle and an air dry but like I said before you do so at your own risk
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the nature of handmade products all measurements are approximate. This is a handmade made product it is not manufactured. I take the utmost care to provide a quality product. I strive for perfection but we do live in an imperfect world. I try to provide you with enough measurements and photos to make an informed decision. If you need more information please convo me.

All of my items are made from 99% recycled fabrics. This means occasionally there will be small imperfections. That is the nature of working with recycled fabrics. If you get a snag in your sweater pull the thread through. If you get a hole, darn it as you would a pair of socks..

***Regarding Color***

I take several pictures of each product so the you can see what each items looks like. Please be aware that each computer monitor can show colors differently. If you are looking to match a color exactly, please contact me and I will work with you to assure your complete satisfaction.

Care of your new Sweater Coat

These sweater coats are made up of many different types of knit. I recommend handwash in cold water and lay flat to dry or dry clean only. IF YOU PUT YOUR COAT IN THE WASHER OR DRYER YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will not accept returns on washed or worn merchandise. I am very careful when constructing your new coat however things happen. If you notice a loose thread please don't pull and yank. Tie it off and snip the end off. Remember even the finest garments in the world can have imperfections that need to be repaired from time to time. Take good care of your coat and it will reward you by being your friend for many years to come!
