Susan and Patty Kiger photographed by Tom Staebler
This month's cover features one to the delicious sets of siblings awaiting you in our Sisters pictorial. The blonde is January 1977 Playmate Susan Kiger and the brunette is her sister, Patty. Executive Art Director Tom Staebler, who designed and photographed the cover, also designed the Kigers' dresses. "They're just two pieces of satin sewn together and pinned by a Rabbit clasp," say Tom. He should know.
