Betsey Johnson's Alley Cat paper dolls

For Fashion Week, a few Betsey Johnson paper dolls that ran in the early 1970s. This one: Aug. 22, 1971. I believe this was in the New York Times Sunday magazine. Love the way the style evokes and updates the 1930s look. Other nice touches: old broadcloth, plaid things and fake fur noted, and the cigarette smoke spelling out the designer's name.
