It is a four part set and we're going to start at the top with Josefina's mantilla
The mantilla is the lacy bit and is attached to a "tortoise" shell hair comb. Weird fact about my life: I actually know how to make very good fake tortoise shell and this isn't it but it's still very pretty!
The mantilla drapes beautifully over her head.
It falls at her shoulders or a little past depending on where you place the comb.
And it's covered in pretty little lace roses all around the edges and scattered throughout the rest.
Did I mention how pretty it drapes, especially around her face? I love it so much!
The dress itself is made of a yellow and black stripped material with a pattern of yellow swirls and red dots. They kind of look like berries on a vine to me!
The collar is ruffled.
And a black ribbon accentuates the empire waist.
I'm not sure what these kind of sleeves are called but they are very pretty! The AG wiki calls them Regency-style so I'm going with that since they are usually correct.
The back is closed with velcro. No surprise there but I love that the ribbon around the waist continues all the way around.
Under her dress Josefina wears a one piece undergarment.
It's made of a thin white fabric and is held up with two thin straps.
It's decorated with two little white bows and three tiny buttons.
It also velcros down the back.
And it has the prettiest ruffled cuffs at the bottom.
This set also comes with a pair of plain white, knee(ish) high socks.
And a pair of black, slip-on, fake leather flats.
I think this is probably my favorite of Josefina's outfits. That mantilla is just too gorgeous and the colors look so nice on her!
