Patterns From The Past: Simplicity 9580 - Knit Separates

Today, we have the beautiful actress and model Susie Blakely on the cover of Simplicity Fashion News from September 1971, wearing pattern number 9580 sewn up in a  solid pink knit paired with a patterned skirt :
And on the cover of the actual pattern shown below, we have Shelley Hack, also an actress and model, who's modeling the zippered top in stripes instead, but with pants, this time - and suspenders:
Thank you ladies, you both look fabulous!

Cute. I never got into sewing knits much, always preferred cotton. But these look pretty easy. Love T said...

Well, you certainly don't see super models on sewing pattern envelopes any more do you? Can you picture Kate Moss modelling for Butterick? Funny.

An online friend does portraits for new sewing patterns,
they are quite beautiful.
