Customer Question

The markings are really muted. I can't seem to get a very good pic especially of the numbers. I have a hard time reading them on the doll. The first number is ***** 6 or 8 followed by a space then either 30,35 or 36.

I'm trying to figure out how to work my camera so I can load the pics on line. Not sure I can with this computer but I'm working on it. May have to use someone else's puter and email myself the pics LOL

OK, I am fine to wait as long as you need.
