Odd, weird, unique. These are all words used to describe things that happen outside the ‘normal’. Many such factory flukes can be found among Cabbage Patch Clothes. Here are some examples I have come across. Do you have any in your collection?
This Pinafore Dress has two silk labels! One on either shoulder. Oops.
This could be a bad ‘repair’ after the patch fell off, but the current owner feels it is in the original location. This is more typical of Jesmar jogging suits!
This Ducky Dress, owned by Jamie Osterbur, is missing the duck patch and has the silk label in an odd spot. This may be because it’s a Hong Kong version of the dress, but it’s still odd!
This Yoke Dress appears to be missing the bow and the ribbon that normally runs around the edge of the neck area.

The pocket on this Sailor Suit is on the wrong side!
The silk label on this CC Preemie Elephant Romper is in an odd location. Normally it is on the sleeve.
This one is a double whammy from Kathy Lucy Uher. The silk tag on the jogging suit is upside down, and the shirt from the windbreaker outfit has two tags instead of one!
Many CPK outfits have animal patches on them. A Bib Dress normally has a giraffe patch on the bib. This outfit has the wrong patch. Although this happens quite a bit, it is still a ‘mistake’ made at the factory. For more information on these patches, and where the outfits they can be found on, visit PTP: Plentiful Patches Pt. 1.
