A fun feature of the romance books that DC put out were these extra editorial pages encouraging the readership to take up an almost wartime spirit of “make do and mend”. Why buy expensive new clothes when you and your gal pals can chop up that old par of jeans to make a fashionable bikini? Or perhaps you might want to turn that funky scarf into a jail-baiting halter top. The choice is yours!

Why those girls are apparently worshiping a giant pumpkin, I don’t know. Perhaps they’re big Charlie Brown fans.
