Cut-Up Quilts 2

Shelley in a fashion spread for Seventeen Says Make It, 1971

Shelley appeared on the pages of Seventeen Says Make It in 1971. The mag featured fashions anyone could make for themselves. In the spread called "Cut-Up Quilts", she modeled outfits made from quilted fabrics which were the hottest trend in fashion at that moment. She modeled what the mag called "The Big Scoop", an attention-grabbing look that combined Butterick pattern 5921 - a dress in lush, quilted no-rib cotton corduroy - and Butterick pattern 6074 - a poet-and-peasant blouse in printed broadcloth. A pair of matching hose, a pair of lace-up pumps and some coordinating bracelets finished her look. Shelley looked hot and trendy.
