Would anyone know of any extant examples of this type of combination? I’ve found combinations but nothing with the little button between the legs. Thank you!

KTA: A rare Rudi Gernreich `Japanese Schoolboy’ ensemble, American, Autumn-Winter, 1967, labelled Rudi Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear, comprising belted black wool Eton-style tunic with scarlet bow to neck and cream collar, matching shorts, knee-socks and a hat with large turned-up brim labelled `Layne Nielson for Rudi Gernreich’, chest 97cm, 38in, waist 53cm, 21in; and a picture of Peggy Moffitt wearing a similar ensemble, (6) The sixties obsession with youth is reflected in Gernreichs nostaligic take on children’s clothing for this cute, gamine ensemble. cf `The Rudi Gernreich Book’, p.131 for a picture of Peggy Moffitt wearing an identical ensemble.
I am so TICKLED over finding this! I was going through fashion plates trying to find inspiration for a new ball gown for an upcoming Victorian Ball when I came across this fashion plate and realized I have seen the exact gown in red!
