Original Name: Snuggle Suit
Alternate Name: Sweater and Romper Set (Ref#4, Vol. 3 Iss. 8, p.4)
Sleeveless cotton romper. It came in a variety of patterns and colours. It has a double line of lace that runs vertically down the middle of the front and around the leg holes. It came with a knitted white sweater and matching knit booties. Knit accessories came in either white or yellow.
This outfit was sold from 1983 until 1985, most likely 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.

> Some kids came wearing regular shoes and socks, not booties. This may have been due to them running out of booties at some point, a ‘store switch’, or some other reason. At least one kid has been noted MIB with this combination.
> This outfit only came on girls; however, it has been found on both foreign boys and girls. (Ref #3, p. 419)
