Women's ensemble featured in a Mademoiselle magazine editorial on summer clothes titled "Scoops: The Ready Mixers". According to text in the article, this ensemble includes a red and white striped bare-midriff top and two skirts worn together, paired with a matching over-sized peach basket hat. This illustration was probably an alternate to the version that was used for publication.
