  • Unlike other Extra Story Outfits, Samantha's Tea Dress was not seen in Samantha's books. However, the tea dress is a version of the one she wears in her Classic and 1986 portraits (though the dress there does not have the pink accents) and a similar version is included in several versions of her Paper Dolls.
  • In older item coding that used easily decipherable codes, this outfit was coded as SPO, standing for "Samantha Play Outfit" (similar to MPO for Molly's After-School Outfit and KPO for Kirsten's Work Dress). Since Samantha's Play Dress and Pinafore had already been released with the code SXO (Samantha Extra Outfit), this one got the designation of "play" in its coding.
