Illustration featured in the July 1960 issue of Mademoiselle magazine in a summer fashion editorial titled "Scoops: Playable Now", where it is indicated that shorts are worn under the dirndl skirt. In the editorial, both the top and skirt appear to have a light brown leopard print, showing that the red hues presented here were changed in production. The ensemble is paired with hoop earrings, black thong sandals, and a black brimmed sunhat that ties underneath the chin.
