BSeries Preemie Outfit #B504 – Bubble romper and blouse

This outfit is one of the finest among this series but it can be confusing to match the pieces.

B Series Preemie Outfits Summary

Description

This outfit consists of three pieces. The first is the cotton bubble romper with overall type top half. The overall bib has three horizontal ribbons running across the bottom and a bow on the right side. An arched Cabbage Patch Kid patch is on the right side of the bib as well. The second is a blouse with a single large ruffle at the shoulder. Finally, the bonnet matches the pattern/colour of the bottom of the bubble romper and is edged with lace.

Many of them are patterned and coloured in various shades of purple, making it difficult to make sure they actually go together.

Footwear: Regular white shoes and socks

This outfit was sold only on dolls manufactured in 1985 and later.

Note: I do not have the code for this outfit verified. If you have it, I would very interested in pictures!

> Outfit 135: This is a one-piece outfit that LOOKS like it is two pieces. There are no ribbon accents and no arched patch, only a small square CPK patch indicative of the later outfits. It comes in many different patterns and colours.

This outfit looks to be two pieces but is one piece. The bottom, shoulder ruffles, straps and neck are dark red, the bib is a vibrant blue and the 'blouse' sleeves and chest area are white with a pattern fo red, blue and green objects.
