Dare To Be You... A Free Spirit B

a closeup of Shelley from a Simpicity Fashion News spread, Dec 1971

Shelley appeared on the pages of the December 1971 issue of Simplicity Fashion News. The "Dare To Be You... A Free Spirit!" spread dared readers to be creative in putting together their own fashion statements via the use of put-ons or prints, trims and braids, as well as fun fabrics. For the spread, she modeled several looks. In the portion of the spread called "Dare To Sew With Fun Fabrics", she modeled a fun skirt. Simplicity pattern 9628 was "a front-zipped skirt loaded with fabulous peasant trim". It was perfect for a variety of fabrics because the pattern had no waistband. A matching turtleneck top, hose, ribboned footwear and a fancy necklace finished her look. Shelley looked like a young free spirited 190s teen.
