Welcome to H♥R! Here you'll find lots of cute dolly dresses made of imported Japanese Kawaii fabric (with vintage and other cute fabrics too!) I love to make sweet and affordable dresses for Blythe. H♥R is just me and a pile of fabrics and trims. Sometimes I let my husband turn bodices inside out ;) I hope you like what you find here! If you need any help, let me know!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
My items are all handmade by me. I make dresses because I love to. I do my very best, but I DO make mistakes on occasion.

I'm always improving my sewing. I am in no way a professional dolly seamstress. My mom taught me to sew when I was younger and I do my best to create wonderful dresses that your girls will enjoy! : )

If you have a problem with an item you bought from me, please contact me within 14 days of receiving your item(s) so I can make it right. I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY. I put a lot of thought and love into these items. I don't generally run into any problems, so buy with confidence!

I try all the dresses on my Blythes before I send them out. So I know they will fit.

*Poofing* and/or *steaming* up your dress a little when you get it on your girl makes sure it'll be picture perfect! ; )
At this time I only accept Paypal. Etsy's shopping cart will direct you to the correct Paypal address.

Please pay for your item(s) within 3 days. Thank you so much!

If payment is not made after 5 days, the sale will be canceled and items will be re-listed.

Of course I don't mind waiting a bit longer for payment as long as the buyer contacts me first to arrange it. ♥


(I USUALLY ship within 6 days, but I reserve the right to wait as many as 10 days. I have a full time teaching job, so this cuts down on my sewing and post office time. Thanks for understanding!)

I ship domestically using First Class with Delivery Confirmation.

I ship International First Class with customs for international orders.

If you would like insurance and/or track-ability, please convo me prior to ordering, and I’ll specify the extra cost.

!!!!!! PLEASE NOTE: Shipping to France, Singapore, and Brazil has been slooooow lately. Please note that it may take up to 3-4 weeks IN TRANSIT to these countries. !!!!!!!

Our shipping prices include shipping and handling (packaging materials, etc.)

Free gift costs are NOT included in the shipping charges. I pay for those on my own of course! :D

*If your Etsy and PayPal address differ, please let me know which one to use in ‘message to seller’ during checkout. If you do not notify me the item will be shipped to your Etsy address.

***Once item is shipped and I am given a receipt for mailing it is up to the post office to deliver the package. I am not responsible for items lost/damaged during shipping. I package my items with care. If you would like insurance and/or track-ability, please convo me prior to ordering, and I’ll specify the extra cost.

And please keep in mind that shipping outside of the U.S. usually takes about 7-14 days, but sometimes longer due to customs checks. If your item has not reached you after 20 days, feel free to contact me. I keep postage receipts of EVERY order and I'm always willing to help as much as I possibly can! ♥
Additional policies and FAQs
~*~My dresses are made to order. I start work on your order as soon as I receive cleared Paypal payment. ~*~

I sew my dresses on a new Singer sewing machine. I do some detailing by hand.

Etsy is a wonderful handmade site, each item has a personality all its own! : )

All fabric is pre-washed prior to sewing.

I only sew in white thread unless otherwise noted.

The dress(es) you receive may not be the exact dress you see in the picture. Placement of designs on the fabric may shift. I do limited runs on a lot of the dresses. I take one round of pictures for each dress and then remake the dress until I run out of the fabric.

I ALWAYS do my best to make the dresses as cute and similar as possible. I have included pictures of swatches of many of my fabrics in the listings for my dresses. That way you can see a bigger picture of the print.

If you want a specific part of the print on the front of your dress, please convo me BEFORE you purchase to make sure I have it available.

--> ***There are no need for snaps, velcro, or buttons on the backs of my dresses. My patterns keep the dresses on your girls without them. This helps me keep the cost down for you guys! : )

I re-list fabric grab bags. The pictures of the fabric grab bags are not the exact fabric grab bags you will receive. I use the original pictures when I re-list items. You WILL receive a strawberry bag filled with cute Japanese fabric scraps. The scraps always change. Don't worry! All the fabric is cute


My shop banners have been made by: - Cloud banner - apples, flowers, mushroom banner


The photos you see are of Blythe dolls from my personal collection. None of my dolls are for sale.

Be sure to check out the "This is Blythe" forum. It has a wealth of information about these little darlings!



*** 100% of the profit from fabric scrap grab bags goes to the American Diabetes Association ( and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation ( I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 16 years and it's about time I started donating funds to organizations that have helped me so immensely over the years.***

If you purchased one of these items, thank YOU for helping me support such a wonderful cause!

Have a nice day and thanks for supporting indie-craft!
