Description

Presumably a preliminary sketch for a similar illustration that was featured in the July 1960 issue of Mademoiselle magazine in a summer fashion editorial titled "Scoops: Playable Now", where it is indicated that the ensemble shown consists of a "midriff top separated by a sunny stretch of almost bikini-brief shorts." In the editorial, both pieces appear to have a light brown leopard print.
