For Knits Only

Shelley in a spread for Simplicity Fashion News, Feb 1970

Shelley appeared on the pages of Simplicity Fashion News for February of 1970. The booklet featured the latest patterns for readers to make. In a spread called "Fashioned for Knits Only", she modeled Simplicity's latest design for knitted fabric. She modeled pattern number 9227, a midi-dress with buttons all the way to the neckline. It could be worn closed or with some leg showing (the pattern included a mini-dress and pants). A fancy bonnet, a statement belt and a pair of matching Mary Janes finished her look. Shelley was just absolutely lovely.
