Dovima Style

Today’s outfit is my new favourite ensemble for the upcoming spring season: A classic 1950s outfit inspired by timeless stars like Dovima using a midi length pencilskirt and buttoned hip jacket.  In a strict #liliann style this is a made to measure skirtsuit with jacket, bowblouse and skirt. I combine it with my ted&muffy classic black ‚Tango‘ pumps, a vintage inspired turban and @whatkatiediduk seamed stockings. It was tailored to my corsetted figure – puhhh it’s tight in the waist but nonetheless comfortable with full stretch lining material. Needless to say I wore matching undergarment for the total vintage completion.

This skirtsuit was completely made by honourable tailor Ibolya Steinhauser using Burda sewing patterns no. 6840 and 7248. Thank you very much for this outfit, we will come back to you with more craftsmanship soon…
Dovima and all the other starlets from the Fifties are kept as a heritage on the vintage vogue website – there you can find adorable outfits – So make sure you check out for the original ads with Dovima and see the fascinating styling of the fifties.
Unfortunately is was storming outside so our photoshoot ended well before it started…


Here’s another view from the back on my new outfit:


And here you have some details of the outfit!
