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 this is a "patio dress in red-red cotton broadcloth" with a giant ruffle in red and white gingham at the bottom of its voluminous skirt. The dress is shown here with hoop earrings, a large cuff bracelet, heeled sandals, and a multi-layer beaded necklace.
