Country-Girl Looks

Shelley with Shelley Smith in a spread for McCall's NeedleWork & Crafts, 1975

Shelley appeared on the cover as well as the pages of McCall's NeedleWork & Crafts, spring-summer 1975 issue. In the spread called "Country-Girl Looks to Wear Everywhere", she modeled a poncho and a cape that were perfect for those cooler days in spring and summer.

Shelley in the Long, Long Fringe and Checkerboard Pattern designs

She modeled the Long, Long Fringe - a poncho with large knit and crochet squares on the sides and cable and popcorn panels on the front, back and hem which ended in long fringes. She wore it over a shirt by Lady Manhattan and pants by Time And Place. She also modeled the Checkerboard Pattern, a snug knit cape with checkerboard sides and Mandarin collar and edgings. It featured crocheted frog closures. She wore this one over McCalls shirt pattern 3550 and Time And Place pants, as well as a scarf by Vera and earrings by Kenneth Lane. In both pieces, Shelley looked sensational.
