Pants Perfection

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 "Object... Pants Perfection, 6 Ways Great", she modeled a pair of printed straight-legged pants with a button fly - Butterick pattern number 6254 - in denim. A sweater top and a pair of boots finished her look. She also modeled a Mary Quant designed Butterick pattern. It was pattern number 6243 and it had a pair of suspenders incorporated into the design. It could be made in various pants lengths, but Shelley modeled the hot pants version. A puff-sleeved blouse, a matching pair of shoes and tight finished her look. And Shelley looked perfect in both pairs.
