This outfit is worn by Josefina in the Beforever books Sunlight and Shadows, Song of the Mockingbird, and Secrets in the Hills.
Josefina greets each beautiful morning and dresses for a day of baking, gardening, and learning to make medicines. This authentic 1824 New Mexican outfit features:
A white camisa edged in lace
A bright-red skirt printed with a sprinkling of tiny blue wildflowers
A beautiful blue woven sash
Soft white drawers
Faux-leather moccasins with laces
My Josefina needed more clothes, so I was happy to pick up her only major release in BeForever's Phase I. This is more-or-less the same thing as her original meet outfit, except with a different, brighter skirt and sash. The camisa, moccasins, and plain white boxers are unchanged. The new skirt is really pretty though, a bright red with brilliant blue flowers (not polka-dots, as was originally believed) and two orange-y stripes trimmed with more flowers along the bottom. The sash is bright blue and has a woven look to it. The skirt and camisa seem to fit her pretty well.
Part of the reason I bought this was for the moccasins. The PM meet outfit I bought Josefina on eBay came with real leather moccasins that were falling apart. These are a soft suede-esque material, very fake, but probably longer-lasting. However, I had a really hard time getting it on Josefina's feet over the socks from her Shoes and Socks set, and my Josefina is a Mattel doll with small feet. I'll have to try her sans socks as in the picture online next time.
If you have a Josefina who didn't come with a meet outfit, I think the skirt on this one is really pretty - the colors are gorgeous - and it comes with quite a bit for your buck. However, if you already have Josefina's original meet outfit, you might want to see if the skirt comes as a replacement part or hope it'll show up alone on the secondary market or eBay.
