Dare To Be You... A Free Spirit C

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

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 Strike a Pose", she modeled a skirt and blouse ensemble. Simplicity pattern 9616 was a quilted border-print long skirt topped by a skinny lace-trimmed blouse. A matching belt, a pair of low-heeled sandals and a choker finished her look. And Shelley looked ready for a the December '71 festivities.
