*This outfit was worn by Josefina in the short story "Thanks to Josefina"*
This outfit is a must have for Josefina fans. The mulberry color compliments Josefina's skin tone nicely. The camisa is made from lightweight cotton and simply embroidered on top. The skirt is heavy, textured material on the bottom and matches the camisa on top. The sash is woven and fits skinnier Josefinas. The rebozo is plain, printed cotton and could be a little more detailed but is still very pretty. Grade:

This is my favorite outfit out of every outfit AG makes It is so pretty. Josefina really looks like a princess in it. The embrodery on the camisa is just so elegant, and the dark rasberry color is so lovely on her. I give it 110/10

The camisa from this outfit is one of the prettiest things Josefina owns. I love the neckline and the embroidery! The skirt is nice, but it seems really long. Like the Feast Day Outfit, I wish that the skirt were print all over, with the camisa over the top. It seems from her illustrations that Josefina wears her camisas over those particular skirts, rather than having a white section at the top of the skirt.
I really don't like the rebozo for this outfit. It has a fake "wovenesque" look that I find kind of tacky. I really prefer the real woven rebozo she gets with her Herb Gathering set.
I bought this outfit on ebay and it came sans sash. As noted above, the Harvest outfit sash works well with it. The rebozo puzzles me a bit. This is a weaving outfit and it's the one rebozo that is, in fact, not woven but rather printed cotton.
Unlike skukla, I got my outfit with the sash but without the rebozo. I love the camisa, it is so pretty with the embroidery on the yoke and the red overcast stitch on the edge of the sleeve. It makes a nice change from all her plain white camisas. The colors are very pretty on Josefina.
On the negative side, I find the pattern on the skirt a little large in scale, but it does work visually. As others have said, the skirt seems a bit long. Lastly, the flowers on the skirt are sort of a purple red, a plum while the ribbon between the patterned part and the cream part is a burgundy. The red embroidery is another shade of red entirely. Not a big deal, but why didn't they try to match the overall red colors, go either plum, burgundy or red. None of these things really impacts my overall love of the outfit.
I bought this sans sash and rebozo on eBay. Given it's one of Josefina's harder-to-find outfits, I was happy to get any of it. (I'm using the sash from her Indigo Skirt set and her meet accessories rebozo.) It's really lovely. I especially like the detailed embroidery on the camisa. The colors are beautiful on her, too. The skirt has a nice, delicate lace edging that makes the skirt look quite dainty. Not a bad find if you can dig it up for a decent price on the secondary market.
I was able to get a complete set of this outfit and I adore it. The camisa opens up fully which makes it easier for me to put on. It looks a little more grown up and mature, like something Ana or Francesca would wear. It makes sense Josefina would get their hand-me-downs. This is my favorite sash of any of her outfits. The shawl is the only disappointing part of the ensemble. Looks great just over her arms, but makes a dismal head-covering. A.
