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 jacket (sans shirt) and neatly creased long shorts, both in matching putty tan and white plaid (although it appears to be closer to light olive green). The ensemble is completed with a tall hat.
