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