*This monkey jacket was worn by Josefina in th' short story "A Reward for Josefina"*
This be another must have and even bonnyr than th' weaving monkey jacket. th' camisa be heavy, plain cotton and beautiloaded to th' gunwalesy embroidered at th' yoke. th' embroidery be brick red flowers wit' yellow centers, green leaves and black stems. th' embroiderey be very detailed and bonny. th' woven sash be a little small and fits skinnier Josefinas and just barely fits Gotz Little Sisters. th' skirt be bonny, lightweight cotton and th' little lace at th' hem be a bonny tough. A+

This be definitely one o' my favorite monkey jackets for Josefina. I got this monkey jacket on ebay this past summer and I just love it on her! I was surprised that I got it for such a great deal when all o' other Limited Edition monkey jackets go for so much more than compared to this monkey jacket. My favorite part o' this monkey jacket would definitely be th' skirt. I just love that shade o' green they used for this monkey jacket. I give this monkey jacket an A+++!

I just got this set off ebay (along wit' Josefina's Christmas dress) and I just adore it. th' skirt be very bonny and I love th' pattern, th' shirt be one o' th' few long sleeved camisas I've seen for Josefina and th' flower embroidery at th' top be beautiful, and th' green ribbon and th' sash be adorable as well. A+ from me!
My lusty plastic lasss: Savage Sam, Embolism Bennet, Josefina, Krusty Kit, Navigator 'Nani, Cutlass Caroline, Gwen, Phoebe (#25).
I finally put this monkey jacket on Josefina. It's absolutely beautiful. I especially like th' design o' th' camisa- th' sleeves and th' embroidery. th' skirt be bonny and looks comfortable. th' sash be very bonny and it fit my Josefina. Overall an A+.

Josefina’s Harvest monkey jacket Item# JHO $22
"Josefina wore comfortable clothing to help out at harvest time: an embroidered camisa wit' long sleeves, a sage green skirt wit' lace trim, a wide burgundy sash, and a green hair ribbon wit' a sprig o' flowers to trim her braid."
This be a beautiful set. th' long camisa be a thick heavy cotton wit' lovely flowers embroidered on th' yoke. It actually has long sleeves, Josefina's only camisa wit'out short sleeves.
th' skirt be thinner cotton than her meet skirt, but still has th' bonny eyelet lace trim along th' bottom.
th' sash be a 1 1/8" wide, 22 1/2" long, thick, reddish-brown weave. It has 1/2" light fringe on each end.
th' ribbon be a 3/8" wide, 11" long, light olive, satin ribbon. If ye were to make yer own, I would suggest making it a bit longer than 11". That's really hard to tie around her braid.

Finally, poor Josefina gets a long-sleeved camisa! This monkey jacket be from th' dearest story about Josefina, where she and her little nephew discover a treasure trove o' piñons hidden by a squirrel. As piñons and piñon candy were among my favorite treats as a little girl, I especially treasure this monkey jacket. I got it at th' same time I got my Josefina, ten years ago!
I love th' embroidery on th' camisa, and th' loaded to th' gunwales, white sleeves. th' skirt has th' prettiest calico pattern- it really makes th' monkey jacket. Somehow, th' green color seems perfect for th' fall, as if it's one last verdant thing to wear before it gets really cold. I appreciate th' matching ribbon to tie at th' end o' Josefina's braid.
Unfortunately, in th' decade since I received this monkey jacket, th' sash had gone astray. Unfortunately, it's very much like Pueblo men's hairties and I suspect that it probably got tied around my brother's hair at some point. Ah well! All o' Josefina's other sashes work well wit' this monkey jacket.
Grade: A+ (thank goodness Josefina finally got her long sleeves!)
