*This outfit is not seen in any of Josefina's books*
Um, I may be crazy beause I was sure there was a thread for this already, but it's not there anymore....
So I'll review!
This outfit is LOVELY - so much better than I had anticipated. Yes, it's made all in one piece (with the camisa attached to the skirt and the sash sewn on top), but it's so aesthetically pleasing I really don't care. The skirt is a lovely cool red color with gold and purple flowers and a lot of gold trim - very detailed. The color suits Josefina so well! The vest is velveteen and lined in satin and while not all that impressive on it's own, it really compliments the outfit and gives it a formal vibe. The shoes ARE just another pair of black flats but techincally there's a difference between these and the two pairs of holiday shoes - these have a lower back and are actually dancing slippers. Surprisingly, they're a little large.
As far as mixing-and-matching goes, her heirloom choker looks perfect with this outfit, and I also tied her red school sash over the ribbon sash attached to this outfit. The color coordinates well and it makes the outfit look more substantial and period appropriate (plus it causes the top half of the dress to ruffle better and look more like a convincing camisa).
A, but only because of the inaccuracy of the outfit being one piece. It is actually my favorite of all Josefina's outfits!!
