The Suits of '73

Shelley in a spread for Seventeen magazine, 1973

Shelley appeared on the pages of Seventeen magazine's February 1973 issue. In the spread called "The Suits of '73", she modeled exactly that, suits - "really tailored, really together" that anybody could make. She modeled a kimono-style wrap jacket that had patch pockets and a self belt over a pair of classic straight-legged pants - both were Butterick pattern 6769. With the suit, she wore a Gordon Peters man-style print shirt and a cloche hat with a brooch. And Shelley looked absolutely chic in her suit.
