B Series Preemie Outfits Summary
Bunting bag with attached hood. The hood is one colour/pattern, and the remainder of the outfit is another. There is lace around the armholes, the hood, and the edges of the yoke. There are also three large rows of lace around the bottom of the bag. The hood opens at the back to allow it to be put on the doll. It ties closed with a white ribbon.
Almost all of them have a curved ‘Cabbage Patch Kids’ patch on the breast. Right now my THEORY is that only the OK factory didn’t use the patch.
Footwear: Knit booties
This outfit was sold only on dolls manufactured in 1985. Preemies were not made in 1986.

> 1984 Preemie Series outfit #2: Hooded Gown
The obvious differences between the two outfits are the rows of lace on the bottom and the CPK patch.
