Young Contemporary Suit

In 1972, Shelley modeled Simplicity Pattern 5869 -  a suit for young the contemporary woman. Any suiting material could be used, but Shelley's brown and white checked version (with matching brown suit collar) was deemed the latest look. Wearing it with a crisp, white turtleneck sweater and a matching '20s-style white cloche-style hat "fabulized" the suit even more. No wonder Shelley's all smiles.
