Description

Red color separation for an illustration featured in a Mademoiselle magazine editorial on summer clothes titled "Scoops: The Ready Mixers". The editorial's text indicates that this illustration depicts a short-sleeved, "eyelashed" blouse and matching knee-length skirt that buttons down the center front. Although the ensemble is shown here in red, the editorial shows the ensemble in green. Two small green fabric swatches are attached to the illustration, presumably for color reference.
