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....
We ship to the US and Internationally through USPS from Champlain, New York and to Canadians from Montreal, Quebec
