Presumably a preliminary sketch for an illustration that was featured in the July 1960 issue of Mademoiselle magazine in a summer fashion editorial titled "Scoops: Playable Now". Although the similar illustration depicts a leopard print midriff top and dirndl skirt combination, the woman's pose and accessories shown here are almost identical to the editorial.
