#512 – Ruffled Windbreaker Outfit

Ruffled and frilly, this outfit allows for an outdoor adventure while feeling all dressed up.

Summary of 500s Series outfits and a list of the outfits: The 500s Series


This outfit consists of a shirt, a jacket and pants. The shirt’s solid-coloured cotton with an arched Cabbage Patch Kids patch front middle. The pants are a solid colour or slightly striped cotton. The jackets are made of windbreaker material with a zipper at the front. There are coloured/patterned ruffles that run around from the front and over the shoulders. A matching ruffle is at the armholes.
This outfit was sold on dolls identified as girls.
This outfit came with striped sneakers.

It is believed that the outfit did not start being manufactured until 1986, instead of 1985 like most of the others in this series. Consequently, it has a shorter manufacturing time and is harder to find. There’s no known explanation for this. For details, refer back to the summary post. This outfit only came out on kids. If it’s found packaged, it was done during the ‘inventory clean out’ that happened later.

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.

Spread sheet showing all the outfits I have recorded, and their information.


This outfit was made by the KT and OK factories. I have not recorded one instance where an outfit was made by both factories. I can not see any difference between the outfits made at the KT factory and those made at the OK factory.

Other Information

> Fun fact: A prototype version of this outfit can be seen in the 1985 Coleco Catalogue (p. 5). The most interesting difference is that, in the final design, the logo is no longer on the jacket, it’s on the shirt
