The Rambling Rose

Shelley in an ad for Columbia Minerva, 1967

Shelley appeared in an ad for Columbia Minerva in 1967 called The Rambling Rose. It featured "lovely embroidered sweaters" that had a rose design on the sleeves. They were perfect for cool spring nights and could be made by anyone, because it was available in a knit kit (no. 4112) sold by, who else, Columbia Minerva. Nothing was "nicer for spring"; and Shelley sure looked nice in that sweater.
