It’s Throw-Back Thursday! Time to share a retired outfit that doesn’t see the light of day nearly enough. All are welcome to participate.
Today I am featuring Addy’s birthday pinafore. It was introduced in 1994 and retired in 2013. I purchased mine that the Oshkosh Outlet Store (no longer in existence). The outfit appears on the cover of Addy’s 4th book, “Happy Birthday Addy!”
The blouse and pinafore are separate garments. The puffy sleeves, while not becoming on Jerry Seinfeld, are to die for on Addy.
The pinafore has tiny pockets with rick-rack trim.
It comes with a brown snood decorated with two yellow bird feathers, to remind Addy “to always let her spirit sing out.” I have never had luck getting the snood on Addy’s head!
Addy is enjoying a rest in the summer shade, allowing you to see the lovely stockings that come with the outfit. No shoes are included; she would wear her “meet” boots.
Looking good Addy!
P.S. Addy is my first AG (pre-BeForever). I got her for my 40-something birthday from my mom. Best gift ever! Brianna and I read most of the AG books together when she was in 1st-2nd grade. I thought Addy’s story could be a little disturbing for a 1st grader, but Brianna was Ok with historical drama.
