Original Name: On Holiday, Apple Blossom
Alternate Name: Lacy Yoke Dress (Ref#4, Vol. 3 Iss. 8, p.4)
Cotton dress with rows of frilly lace and a small rose patch at the yoke, in one of two patterns. (see below) The lace used at the yoke is also used at the sleeve, leg and dress hems. The dress came with matching bloomers, Mary Jane shoes, and socks. Very occasionally, it came with lace-up shoes.
This outfit was sold from 1983 until 1986, maybe longer. It was sold both on kids and packaged, starting in 1984.
My goal is to find every version of every outfit that was produced. Below is a record of each version of this outfit that I have, up to the date indicated. To understand clothing codes, factories and variations, please refer to the suggested readings below.

> The OK and KT outfits for letters A to D have a patterned yoke with only two rows of lace and a small rose patch. The P versions of A to D are white, with four rows of lace. The remaining letters are the same as the P factory outfits.
> There is a USA version with a slightly different neck area and different lace.
> There were many variations made by foreign factories.
