Back in early 2007, Damien Kellis wrote:

Here, also, there’s a rather glaring plot hole that will become clear in episode 4: Kero-chan tells Sakura to try using the new Fly card, before Sakura writes her name on it. But I suppose there’s some No-Prize answer out there; after all, it’s MAGIC.

Sakura’s Pajama Collection

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

My original post on Sakura’s cardcaptor apparel involved the pink pajamas she wore when capturing her second Clow Card, before Tomoyo stepped in to provide costumes. Throughout the series and movies, Sakura is shown in 13 different pajama outfits, made up of 10 different styles.

Cardcaptor Apparel: Pink with a Hoop Skirt

This outfit was originally designed by Tomoyo with the Fly card in mind, as that’s the card Sakura was up against when she wore it in the manga. In the anime, Tomoyo plans to have Sakura wear it for a “forest dance” in the park to film. Instead, Sakura wears it while going after Woody and Rain. This outfit appears in the chapter “A Cardcaptor is Born Part 2″, and in episode four, “Sakura’s Tiring Day”. It also appears in Tomoyo’s daydream in episode 40.
