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. The spread called "Super-Simple Patterns" featured patterns that were easy to sew (perfect for readers who wanted to learn how to sew) and were the latest in fashion. With a minimum number of pattern pieces, construction kept simple and instructions clear and brief, readers could easily sew the clothes themselves. Shelley modeled pattern number 9231, a peasant blouse with two sleeves to chose from, and pattern number 9232, an elastic-waist skirt. A head scarf, a chain belt and necklace, a golden bangle and a pair of matching flats finished her look. Shelley looked adorable.
