The downside for me is that the beautiful turquoise slip-ons just don't fit my Josefina doll (circa 1998). So for these photos, Josefina is shoeless. The slip-ons fit my more recently purchased dolls though, but I might be a little worried that the saturated color may stain vinyl (so be careful of that possibility).
The outfit itself is easy to put on and take off, and so a breeze to play with. The ruffled shirt is definitely my favorite part- as others have said- it is fancier and different than her other shirts. The belt and skirt are very well made as well.
For $22, the quality of the outfit and the inclusion of shoes and ribbons really makes this a good choice for Josefina's wardrobe. And I think it will mix and match with other items from her collection nicely.
