This is one of my favorite outfits for Kaya! There are many separate pieces in this outfit, which makes it quite versatile. The skirt, blouse, vest, scarf, and shawl are all made of a nice quality satin. The woven yoke has rows of beads to keep it together in one piece that Kaya can slip over her head. The rosettes for her hair and the half-rosette for her neck scarf are really beaded in a beautiful design. The shawl is huge - the satin fabric is 24 inches across and is larger than a half-circle - with a thick, rich, 3-1/2 inch fringe around it, and small elastic loops that hook over Kaya's thumbs when she wears it. The moccasins are white with a woven ribbon across the toe that matches the design in the yoke. They also are thickly fringed with white satiny fringes. The outfit also comes with two long yellow satin ribbons to braid into Kaya's hair.
The only drawback I can think of to this gorgeous outfit is that it is so slippery, that it is a little difficult to get Kaya dressed in it properly - especially the moccasins.
I give this outfit an A - would be an A with many pluses if not for the difficulty in dressing.

I agree on the moccasins. I tend to hold Kaya upside down so the fringe is hanging down, and then wrap the ribbons around tightly. I'm assuming Jeanette did something similar. It's very pretty, but I wish the shawl was embroidered.
I finally got this for Kaya last week and love it! It's so detailed and I didn't have a problem with the outfit being slippery. I did have to hold her upside down in order to get her moccasins on properly, but I love this colorful outfit on her!
I love the bright colors of this outfit. I like the yoke, but I think it is little busy when paired with the scarf. The yoke slips over the head and the braids/hair has to be pulled through. The skirt, shirt and vest all have the no snag velcro which is nice. Great modern outfit that is pretty versaitle set.
Overall Grade: A
I was too lazy to add the yellow ribbons to her hair.
