Jiffy Fashions

Shelley in the Jiffy Dress
Simplicity Fashion News, November 1975

Shelley appeared on the pages of Simplicity Fashion News in November of 1975. The issue featured Jiffy time saver Fashions for the fall of 1975. The patterns shown were new, easy to make and definitely must-haves for that fashion season. Aside from the spread "Jiffy... The Fashion Extender", she appeared in the "A Wrap, A Zip, A Tie - For Jiffy Dresses" spread, as well as the "Two For One" spread.

In the former spread, Shelley modeled the Jiffy tucked-bodice dress with obi tie, pattern number 7617. The bright Scarlet Red dress was a standout and could be worn from day to night. A fabulous scarf, an envelope clutch and a pair of ankle strap pumps - all in varying shades of tan - finished her outfit. In the latter spread, she modeled the Jiffy reversible skirt, pattern number 7699.  It had no zippers and was simply wrapped and tied around the waist - perfect for women on the go. With it she wore a stretch knit sweater, pattern number 6624. A pair of matching boots and a pair of matching opera-length necklaces finished her outfit. And in both outfits, Shelley looked absolutely sensational.
