School Fashion News

Shelley on the cover of Simplicity School Fashion News, 1971

Shelley appeared on the cover of Simplicity School Fashion News for Spring/Summer 1971. It was a special portion of the Simplicity Fashion News booklet for March of 1971 and it featured fashions for the busy school girl. On it, she wore pattern number 9277, a fun tank top and skirt ensemble. A pair of slingback sandals, a fun belt and a bandana - all in red - finished her look. A fun bracelet adorned her wrist as well. And Shelley looked so adorable and ready to go off to school.

Shelley appeared in various parts of the booklet, modeling fun and up-to-the-minute fashions for the young miss. Various skirts, pants, dresses and blouses were featured. "Practically anything goes" so readers were free to pick and choose the look they wanted. As was also said in the booklet, "The scene is alive with checks, dots and stripes so sew now!"

In the spread called "The Way is Young & Zippy", Shelley modeled pattern number 9284 - a blouse and pants ensemble. The top was a red and white polka dot blouse that tied at the midriff and had bishop sleeves. The pants were slightly flared denims with white vertical stripes. A pair of two-toned lace up pumps and a tassel belt finished her look. With her hair in double side ponytails, Shelley looked absolutely young and zippy.
