Vintage 70s Hyvilla Finnish Red Dress // 1970s Kirjokangas Helsinki Finland Sailor Style Ladies Size M

Age: 1970s

Makers Label: Kirjokangas Helsinki - Hyvilla Oy. Hyvilla Oy existed under that particular name only between 1970 and 1978

Description: This is a wonderful example of 70s era Finnish fashion made in a striking red and white "sailor" style. The dress has a sailor collar, cap sleeves and pleating at the bottom of the dress. The collar, sleeves and hemline are decorated with applied white stripes. The dress does up the front with a nylon zipper and cinches at the waist with a matching sash belt.

Color: Red and white

Fabric: Crepe in a wool or wool blend


Size 36 is indicated, which I believe is the Finnish equivalent to a US size 8 - although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style and cut of the garment in mind:

Shoulders: 15" across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Bust: 36" around

Waist: 33" around, but meant to be cinched with its belt

Hips: 38" around, but meant to hang somewhat loosely

Length: 38", measured flat


This dress is in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining or odors - it looks like it saw little, if any, use, and was well stored over the years

This is a very cute 70s period dress with striking color - based on a popular style in Finland during the 1920s....
