Description

Women's ensemble featured in a Mademoiselle magazine editorial on summer clothes titled "Scoops: The Ready Mixers". The editorial's text indicates that this illustration depicts a sleeveless tunic with a rose print and oversized buttoned patch pockets. The top is paired with vertically striped pants and a tall peach basket hat, which is not shown here. This illustration was probably an alternate to the version that was used for publication.
