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", where it is indicated that shorts are worn under the dirndl skirt shown here. The ensemble is paired with hoop earrings, thong sandals, and a brimmed sunhat that ties underneath the chin. In the editorial, both pieces feature a light brown leopard print.
