We’re Back!

After a short break we are back and ready to roll into the new year! We actually mean roll because we may have over-indulged at Christmas! But that is what the silly season is for though, right?

We are kicking off 2017 with some pretty new arrivals and have lots of things in production that we can’t wait to show you! This week we are excited to welcome new Julia Skirts and Teardrop tops into the shop.

BLOG-JULIA-MADE590

The Julia skirt features an easy-fit elasticated panel at the back which means it will fit a broad range of sizes, and it also means it will be an easy fit to your high, mid or low waist, with a band that will give with you when it’s needed (hello big lunch!). Also a good piece for expecting mums, as it will grow with you for longer than a normal waistband. The band has a lovely little peaked front, adding a nice detail when worn tucked in. The elastic panel is a fun feature which also makes the band sit lovely and flat at the front and sides, hugging your waist and sitting pretty all day. The bottom of the skirt has a lovely generous hem to weigh down the skirt and give the hem structure. Perfect for summer and winter, it is a nice above the knee length and of course, it has generous POCKETS with pleat details. Perfect for stashing your phone, keys and cash for a quick trip to the shops. These four fabrics are some of our favourites so far!

BLOG-TEARDROP-MADE590

The Teardrop Top is a favourite of ours here too! This style has all the things we love about a great top. It is short sleeved, has 3 gorgeous teardrop cutouts at the front and one large teardrop at the back neckline and looks great with your Made590 skirts or your favourite pair of jeans!

Make sure you pop by our shop or website to take a peek at all the new arrivals, we will be adding all of our new things as quick as we can!

Our New Puzzle Animal Print!

Our brand new Puzzle Animal Print has just arrived! This print is based on a gorgeous vintage puzzle that Christina used to play with when she was younger. We decided to take this puzzle and turn it into a bright and fun fabric, we even added in some more of our favourite animals that we felt needed to take part in the party!

We couldn’t settle on just one colour way so decided to do it in two! The brights features the animals in primary hues with a dash of pink and grey, the Jewel tone colourway features teals, dark magenta, chartreuse and peachy oranges.

BLOG-PUZZLE-MADE590

IMG_4356Doris Dress in Brights Puzzle Animals

This dress is a beautiful fitted bodice with flattering, full gathered skirt. The overall look of the dress is quite vintage with lovely scalloped neckline, hidden petals either side of the neck to hide your bra straps and a lovely stretch to the fabric for that perfect fit! Our signature side pockets also make this dress both practical and fun. We love the dress because it is fun and stand out, as well as being comfortable and cool. We hope you will love Doris as much as we do!

We love that Doris is a dressy neckline (wide boatneck shape) with small petals which can be tucked under for a wider boat neck look, or unfolded into the neckline to hide your straps and bring the neckline in. She has the most perfect bodice because she is slightly longer in the torso (perfect for tall ladies!) and gives a lovely shape though the middle, perfect for accessorising with a wide belt. The fabric we have used is a slight stretch cotton, with a lovely little polished cotton sheen. Perfect for all occasions, but especially something that needs to be a little more fancy.

The Eva top is a lovely little top with a hint of sophisticated feminine style. The perfect top for work or play, with just the right amount of detailing. Eva is part of our Golden Apple range where we use our most special fabrics.

IMG_4314Eva Top in Vines

FEATURES: Eva is a lovely shape to wear all year round. She has a soft sleeve with lightly gathered shoulder, and a loose body which drapes beautifully. Eva looks fabulous on all shapes and sizes as she flatters curves and the gathering at the bust gives extra room to not feel restricted. The soft rayon fabrics used in this style give such a wonderful feel as they are soft and luxurious and look dressy for all occasions. The neckline is a lovely scooped boatneck, with a fine finished edge. Eva is definitely one of our truly versatile and effortlessly cool shapes, loved by all.

IMG_4318Eva Top in Speckle

Eva is great teamed with your favourite pair of jeans or work pants, but looks wonderful paired with one of our flattering basic skirts such as the Kelly or Katie which have a flat front band and work well with an untucked loose top. We love Eva worn tucked in for a more formal look with either a Kenzie or try one of our more fun styles like a Patsy or Sunset skirt. You can even layer Eva with an Autumn basic long sleeve top. To complete your look, pair Eva with one of our Clementine wool cardigans, and a pair of cute coloured tights and boots.

Molly Dresses have Arrived!

The Molly is a lovely new shift dress we’ve designed for winter. She’s a little 60’s inspired with little front patch pockets and if you like our Penelope shape you will love her cute younger sister Molly. She is part of our golden apple range and made with a range of fabrics perfect for work and play.

IMG_4213Molly Dress in Party Lights

FEATURES: Molly is the perfect dress to throw on in winter, she has a loose sleeve perfect to put layers under or over, and she looks perfect with boots and stockings. She is a great shape for wearing with our leather belts, but she doesn’t need any accessories either! Her neckline is low enough that she will work on all shapes and sizes, and features a cute fold down which can be worn up for a funnel-neck look, or folded down to create a nice little collar-like edge. She is our classic shift shape, with a loose body, shaped to fit across the back and create a great waistline, even in the loose cut. We love the length which sit just at the knee on most, the same as our Penelope dresses. We also of course love the patch pockets on the front, practical and fun!

 

IMG_4201Molly Dress in Black

HOW TO WEAR: Wear Molly all year round, she has a versatile sleeve length just past the elbow and a lovely soft loose shape. Our cotton versions are breezy and cool, and just the right weight for all year round. Our suiting versions are so lovely for work and look great layered in winter. Wear Molly in winter with a Clementine cardy, stockings and boots, or even layer with a basic autumn long sleeve underneath and coat over the top. We love Molly worn with the collar turned down and turtleneck or skivvy underneath for a really mod look. Molly is going to be your new favourite dress for her versatility and relaxed fit. On a day where you want to look effortlessly cool, Molly is the perfect little dress to throw on in the morning and go! She is the perfect shape to accessorise with your favourite brooch or necklace too. Add some sparkle and a metallic belt for a night out and you’re good to go for just about any occasion.

Baby Bonnies are Back!

You know when we really love a style around these parts when we run it in two lengths! The Baby Bonnie skirt is the little sister of Bonnie, the exact same perfect cut, but around 5cm shorter (plus it sounds a whole lot cuter, right?). Part of our Golden Apple range, she is launching in a range of amazing fabrics, including metallic linens, canvas, liberty lawn and fun kitschy cotton prints. We’ve saved the best bits for Baby Bonnie!

IMG_3679

Baby Bonnie in Autumn Picnic

Baby Bonnie is the same flattering cut as the Bonnie but with less length going into winter so you can wear her with tights and boots and have just the right amount of leg showing! It’s also an ideal length for the shorter gals of the world (like a few of the made590 ladies!). We love the way the hemline kicks out slightly where the lovely reinforced band sits around the bottom, creating a structured but fun cut which will be versatile with a lot of our tops and basics.

IMG_3685

Baby Bonnie in Winter Floral Linen

The length (similar to a Kelly or Kylie skirt) will be long enough for summer, but perfect in winter if you want to wear knee high boots. The same cute pocket placket detail will break up busy patterns, and the flattering pleats will give you an ideal a-line silhouette back and front. Belt loops complete this skirt giving you the option of tucking in your favourite top and belting to dress it up if you wish.

IMG_3697

Baby Bonnie in Citrus Jacquard

Wear this little lady with fitted tops (such as our flutter tee, autumn long sleeves and Rizzo tee) tucked into the waistband and your favourite belt to finish, or with a blousy top such as the Ginny, Felicity or three leaf for a more relaxed look.

IMG_3702

Baby Bonnie Skirt in Luxe

You could wear bare legs and mid calf boots, our metallic sneakers with patterned socks or throw on some sandals while summer sticks around. Remember the Baby Bonnie is a slightly shorter length, so will be really versatile with many shoe combos and layers too. We are looking forward to wearing ours under warm coats, with chunky scarves and simple tops this winter.

Our Baby Bonnie Skirts (plus much, much more) are available instore and online now!

Introducing Ray’s Galaxy!

RAYS GALAXY TOPS SKIRTS

A brand new print to made590, Ray’s Galaxy pays homage to Ray Eames and our love for mid century design. This limited edition screen print is designed in Sydney by Kirbee Lawler exclusively for made590. We worked with the best local screen printers; Publisher Textiles, choosing four unique seasonal colour ways to create Ray’s Galaxy, a textured starburst design which comes as a large all-over print with mid century boxes behind, and as the original galaxy print itself, a small scale busy pattern which can be worn with other prints. We chose metallics like copper and rose gold to highlight the beautiful colour ways and reflect the mid century feel. We hope you love this new print of ours as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!

BREEZy-Rays-Galaxy-patsy

Christina is wearing a Sarah Top in Navy and a Patsy Skirt Longer Length in Breezy Ray’s Galaxy

Our new Longer Patsy Skirt is a gorgeous addition to the made590 family! If you love the Bonnie Skirt then this will be right up for alley, especially if you like a mid length skirt with some movement! This skirt is part of our very special Golden Apple range which range brings together our most special and favourite fabrics with gorgeous new styles.

The Patsy Skirt is one of our fullest shapes which sits below the knee in this longer length. Our long Patsy is 10cm longer than our usual Patsy shape. Perfect for people who don’t like showing their knees. With a fitted waistband and similar sizing to the Bonnie Skirt, the Pasty also has practical side hidden pockets! We love patsy because of her 1950s style, her practical and versatile length and her gorgeous flowy lyocell & cupro base fabric. This skirt is a lovely swishy shape with lots of movement, but not too much fullness due to the flat pleating at the front. Works best sitting high or mid waist. As with all our gathered and pleated skirts, the fullness and detailing is at the front and back but not the sides, which means you won’t feel wider or have an unflattering silhouette on your hips no matter the fabric weight.

The Patsy Skirt is a great every day skirt to wear out to dinner or even to the office. This fabric has a lovely matte finish and feel similar to rayon. Due to the wonderful screen printing, this print will last in the wash and keep it’s vibrancy. The lyocell & cupro blend is a fabric with similar qualities to rayon. Cool and breezy in summer and easy to layer in winter. This patsy has a lovely drape but a nice amount of structure in the cut. Wear her with your favourite ankle boots and tights, layered in winter or with a pair of leather sandals in summer. We love Patsy with any of our cute cotton basics like the Sarah, Keyhole or our flutter tees. Or you can try mixing it up and pattern clashing with a print in a different scale or a nice texture. Longer length of the patsy will be great with our winter cardigans or tucked in tees, let the print speak for itself and team it with simple shapes and one of our amazing leather belts. Blush-Rays-Galaxy-patsy

Kelly wears Shelly Top in Ray’s Galaxy and Patsy Skirt Longer Length in Blush Ray’s Galaxy

The Shelley Top is a lovely style we created as an easy basic which can be a versatile staple for work or weekends. We love good shapes in great prints here at made590 and this Shelley top is part of our Golden Apple range which combines both in limited edition runs.

Featuring a higher scooped neck with centre back seam, the Shelley top is a simple shape that oozes personality. The clean lines on this top are thanks to the facings around the neckline and sleeves which sit seamlessly and flat against your body. This gives Shelley a clean look and makes her the perfect canvas for our wonderful prints! She also works so well in the Lyocell and Cupro base we have chosen to make her in due to its drape and softness. Bust darts make for a perfect fit and a back seam allows us to add shaping without taking away from the room needed in the hips and tummy area. Side splits at the hem mean the top can be worn loosely and layered too. We have adjusted the hemline to be straight and the same length for versatility (Shelley used to feature a curved uneven hem back and front). We have all made sure she has enough length for the taller ladies who love this style!

Rays Galaxy Shelly Top-made590

Liza is wearing the Ray’s Galaxy Shelly Top in Blush and the Patsy Skirt in Native Bouquets

This top is a great shape for work as it is semi-fitted at the bust, loose through the body and hugs you in all the right places. Looks wonderful teamed with one of our long sleeve basics under or wool cardigans over the top. Due to the loose fit Shelley works really well tucked into pants or high waisted skirts, but the drape of the Lyocell and Cupro works well worn untucked over a flat front skirt such as Kelly, Kenzie or Kylie. We love this shape for a dressy occasion where the prints can shine and be the focal point of the outfit. The length of shelley will work well on taller ladies, but not be too long on you if you’re smaller. You can even wear Shelley out with jeans and belt over the top of your layers with one of our excellent leather belts to create a high waist look!
