Sales Policy For Hobbie's House of Wizard Wear

A Sales Policy is normally replete with legalese so we thought it best to write this one out in plain English.

Until 2005, we did not find it necessary to bring such a policy to the attentions of our visitors.  Unfortunately, over the years and as recently as 2015, certain events and situations made it necessary for Hobbie's House to post the following Sales Policy details on our site.

  • We reserve the right to cancel and refund any order at any time.  This includes but is not limited to cancellations and refunds on the grounds of poor communications, unverifiable information, and reasons deemed relevant to the situation which prompted the refund.
  • We do not sell to "competitors" or costume designers. Our products are not intended for re-sale.
  • There are no refunds on custom sized knitwear
  • There are no refunds on standard sizes when no attempt has been made prior to ordering to verify sizing and fit.  Our knitwear is designed to have a specific fit and design ease.  It may not be to the customer's expectations.  We make it easy for the customer to contact us and verify OUR measurements against theirs.
  • There are no refunds on knitwear which has been worn and/or damaged while worn.  We photograph each item of knitwear in detail prior to shipping for documented verification that the sweater, scarf, cardigan or vest was shipped in excellent condition.
  • PayPal payments receive PayPal refunds.  For unverified accounts, PayPal does require registration to receive said refund.  This is their rule - not ours.  Once we apply the refund option in PayPal, the funds are automatically transferred our of our account.  It is up to the customer to proceed with any actions required to claim the refund.
  • Fully refunded orders are automatically cancelled and removed from our production schedule.
  • We reserve the right to update our product prices and shipping costs at any time.  However, we will not change the price or shipping fees of outstanding orders already in the production queue.

At Hobbie's House and Custom Costume Knits, we attempt to be as accurate as possible in our content and pricing. However, we cannot guarantee that the product descriptions and specifications, pricing or any other content on the site is 100% accurante, complete or current 100% of the time.

We are only human and there are times when a product edit flies under the radar and is not updated along with the rest of the product inventory.  Brought to our attention, these errors are immediately rectified.

Product reviews and links to theme related resources are intended to provide visitors with additional information.

These reviews can become outdated and resources may no longer be available. Unless otherwise specified, these reviews and resource links do not constitute an express recommendation of said products and resources.

We are in no way accountable for the quality of their goods or services.

Thank you. Hobbie's House of Wizard Wear and Custom Costume Knits

"How do I compare misses sizes to a junior sizes? I really don't know which I should order or which size would be a better fit."

Get out your measuring tape because there is a difference between each size range. The questions here is how does a Misses size compare to a Junior size.

In an earlier post, we covered the differences between the two size ranges but here are the measurements to determine specifically which Junior size comes closest to an "8" in the Misses size range.

There is one other factor which can throw off all "sizing" and measurements - how generous the manufacturer is in their idea of sizing. The easiest way to put it is this...when it comes to comparing sizes, the more expensive the brand, the more true to size and the more generous the wearing ease.

Have you ever had the opportunity to try on various sweaters of the same size but from different labels and manufacturers? Try it sometimes - you will be amazed.

Let's start by comparing Misses sizes to Junior sizes.

The difference is not just in the finished measurements. You can also tell the difference in the construction and finishing method. The high end garments will be full fashioned (individual garment pieces are made separately then assembled) rather than completed using the cut and sew method.

The big ticket items also provide you with more wearing ease above and beyond the design ease.

Please note that the measurements given below are your actual measurements not the finished measurements of the garment itself.

Also, the style of a garment will affect how it fits - outerwear [jackets, vests, coats and cardigans] has varying amounts of added wearing ease - they are designed to be layered over other garments.

Certain sweater styles have "negative" wearing ease...in other words they are literally smaller than your actual body measurements.
