I think it might be more accurate- almost all the dresses I've seen in paintings are of girls in very pale dresses with different sashes. I'm guessing the accuracy comes from whether or not Felicity was wealthy enough to be wearing a white dress.
I love this dress- it's so lovely. I have to take the shift off the doll to get her to wear it- it shows through oddly at times. When I was little, I thought this was the most gorgeous dress ever.

I love this! I agree with shiniker in that the woven quality of the skirt is great. It looks just like she and her family might have woven it themselves. The belt sets off the outfit rather well.
The edging on the camisa is very pretty.
My only complaint, which doesn't have much to do with the outfit- why does Josefina have to wear short sleeves all the time? I'm a New Mexican and they are pulling your leg if they think a short sleeved camisa w/ a poncho will keep you warm. You need sleeves! Especially that close to Santa Fe.

This is a gorgeous set. The hat is lined and has two leather thongs with tiny feathers on it. The bracelet is mock bone (plastic). You need to untie the leather thong of the bracelet, put it on Kaya, and retie it. This might be difficult for a small child or someone with short fingernails.
The parfleche is very nice but looks kind of fake. It's unfortunate it's not larger, so you could store more of Kaya's things in it.

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.
