Fall Fashions 3

Shelley appeared in the September 1975 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. In a spread called "The Best of Fall Fashions," she modeled fashions to sew, crochet and knit by Simplicity Patterns. The pictures were taken in The Old Village at the Historic Towne of Smithville in New Jersey, a restoration town "where life is lived as it was circa 1800." And Shelley looked positively lovely in the latest fall fashions for 1975.
Shelley modeled Simplicity pattern 7053 - a "peasant patterned long dirndl and quilted vest, in wool challis by Liberty of London" and pattern 6625 - "a puffed sleeve blouse, sewn in Landau's wool jersey."
Shelley modeled a crocheted, ruffled, triangular shawl
made with Columbia Minerva's Nantuk Bulky acrylic yarn.
