New In: Winnie Reversible Dress Confetti Animals!

Can you tell we’ve been a little busy around these parts lately, what with the market stores we’ve been juggling, the new shapes we’ve released and to top it off this amazing Confetti Animals print that is a Made590 exclusive fabric, designed by our in-house graphic designer, Kirbee Lawler, published by our good friends over at Publisher Textiles.

We’ve been working hard this year to develop our own prints by working with local artists and our in-house illustrator, as we’re all about supporting locally made talent and locally made product.

This is a print that Kirbee created from inception to end product, and this is what she had to say about it.

“It isn’t a party until the confetti comes out, and these Australian party animals are ready! Featuring some of our favourite furry friends, our Confetti Animals print is bound to put a smile on your face. There’s Wombats, Bilbies, Koalas, Platypus, Possums and Cockatoos galore in this print with sweet little Wattle Blooms and gumnuts” – Kirbee Lawler.

 

This Winnie Dress is made in a very comfortable, stretch fabric. It’s perfect for those mothers who are still breastfeeding, especially as this dress features a v-shape neckline on one side making it easy and practical. It also features a higher, scoop neck-line as well, for those that prefer more coverage.

The viscose fabric drapes beautifully which means the skirt falls really well. And we’ve taken on your requests and have even extended the length of the dress. The Midi Confetti Animals to the right is longer in length compared to the Confetti Animals print on the left. With a mid sleeve length, we also tick the ‘arm coverage’ box. Dress up the black base Winnie to highlight the gold confetti animals, and team back with a metallic belt and glitzy earrings and wear the neutral, brown base Winnie for everyday wear with sandals, boots and/or a small wedge.

A great Australiana print which is a testament to all the things we love – Australian flora and fauna, locally made goods and locally made artists and businesses.

 

 

 

 

New Stock: Penelope Dress

Where do we begin with Penelope?! We introduced this shape to the Made590 family this time two years ago and she’s been such a popular one  – a Made590 customer favourite. Instead of us telling you why we think she ticks the boxes for versatility; we’ll tell you what we often hear as feedback from our customers.

Our customers love her because of her A-line shape; it’s the dress to wear if you don’t wear a-line dresses. She does the aline shape justice because she’s not too ‘tent like’, she comes in at the waist and provides you with shape, and finishes off with a slight, a-line skirt shape. She is knee length, which is perfect for those who find length important. She provides sleeve coverage as well and a modest neckline making her the perfect dress to wear to work, with enough detail to wear on the weekend as a fun, and easy-to-wear shift shape! We often feature Penelope in a variation of fun fabrics and more work appropriate prints in neutral base colours and smaller prints.

The confett print, hills and valleys, foliage and Bluebell woods are great options to wear to work; team back with a belt and you’re all ready to go! The Penelope can be worn back with trainers for an easy, weekend throw on like we have done here. The Elk sneakers featured are available instore only.

Or team back with a wedge for work or dressier occasions, these Elk wedges are also available instore only.  Wear with stockings or footless leggings for winter and the tran-seasonal weather; you an even wear a layer underneath or pop over our popular ballet wraps for an added accessory!

Available in XS(8/10)-XL(17/18)

Dresses available instore and online now!

New In: Every day Ballet Wrap

Our ‘Every Day’ range was created so that you had your pick at pieces that we thought were, well, every day basics, necessities, staples – you get the idea!

This is our second time releasing our Every Day Ballet wraps and after much demand, they are now available online and instore! They sold out very quickly the first time around, so get in quick!

They’re the perfect piece to take you from Winter to Summer and for those who love their winter cardigans but need something light for the warmer weather.

They’re great if you’re after arm coverage as they are a mid sleeve length. With its wrap around cross over tie you can style it as fitted or as loose as you like. You can finish the tie off to the side like we have on the left picture, to the front or to the back like the middle and right photos. It’s the perfect added accessory to finish off a dress outfit, and great teamed back with both pants and skirts also! As it’s cropped in length, it’s the perfect, piece to highlight your waist!

We’ve released three neutral and staple colour ways that will literally match back with all colours in an outfit. Because it’s so light weight, you can literally fit them in the smallest of bags ready to use when the night air approaches.

All Made590 staff have one (or more) here and they’re great to just throw in your bag and go!

New Online and Instore: Immy Dress

The Immy dress has become quite the customer favourite here at Made590, and we’re super excited for this release of fabrics!

For those of you who have been eyeing off the Cotton + Steel x Rifle Paper Co. collaboration, you will notice the Rifle paper Co. Menagerie fabric to the right!

The Immy is the perfect dress to have in your wardrobe coming into the December month, at it is a great smart, casual dress but also special occasion piece ideal for weddings, engagements, Christmas parties etc.

She can easily been worn back with sandals for BBQ’S, birthdays and lazy Summer days, but as she’s reminiscent of a 50’s vintage dress shape, she’s also got finer details for more formal occasions; with clever features like the cinched in waist, rounded bateau neckline and tiny pin tucks at the shoulder.

You can team her with one of our belts for that polished/finished look for more formal events, add a wedge – like we have here (available instore only) – and you’re ready to go!

Get in quick as we have limited numbers in these fabrics!

As always, our product is not only designed in house by our team, but all Made590 product is made locally by our small group of makers we’ve been working with for over 10yrs! Locally made product is important to us, as it means skilled workers don’t go unemployed and we invest our money in Australian manufacturing. We produce in small runs, which means our product is exclusive, unique and one of a kind. Producing small also means we can liase with our makers face-to-face, and make sure the product is made exactly how we like, avoiding mistakes in runs and fabric wastage!

Shop small and shop local this weekend, and support our Inner West boutique community!

In the Jungle…the mighty Jungle!!!

We’ve been working on this fabric magic for a little while now and it’s finally here and even better than we could have imagined!

With so much detail throughout, you’ll find something new to fixate on and daydream about every time you put this very special piece on.

We’ve collaborated with Andrea Smith who is the talented illustrator behind this print!

Take a look below at some of her progress shots; Andrea hand paints paper & then cuts all the elements for the artwork out of the paper, to create a collage. It gives the print a 3 dimensional quality.

FullSizeRender-29

FullSizeRender-28

This print is a fun and playful take of a wild jungle featuring lions and tigers and everything in between!

It features on a navy base and the dress version, known as the new popular Jessie Dress, is a cotton sateen stretch fabric, meaning it’s super comfortable to wear and versatile with its navy primary base colour.

We’ve also included this print on our newest skirt, Jeanie. The Jeanie – In the Jungle print features on a stretch drill fabric. This skirt  replicates a denim skirt with features like a front zip with two button closure on the waist band, as well as two back pockets. She’s so comfortable to wear and allows movement unlike traditional stiff denim skirts. Again on a navy base, with lots of colours throughout, she’s a super versatile one to match back with cardigans, basics, tshirts as well as accessories.

Now available Instore and Online!

Get in quick, we’ve had lots of ladies waiting for this print!

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!

NEW STYLE: Molly Merino Dress!

The cold snap is here, and we’ve got your back! Our newest 100% Merino Wool dresses have hit the store and are online too! Molly is a great winter staple that you can throw on and don’t have to think about – made from 100% Mercerised Merino Wool; with a very similar weight and feel to our other winter friend – our Clementine Cardigan. With special features like the wide rib funnel neck, that you can also turn down into a cowl neck style, she’ll be sure to keep you warm and snuggly through the Winter days. She also features practical and working patchwork pockets, a lovely long sleeve with a ribbed cuff finishing to keep the warmth in! Molly sits perfectly at knee length (maybe a little shorter, depending on your height), the overall knit is a lovely textured finish featuring a patchwork style basket knit which is both interesting and practical, as it draws the eye to the pattern when worn, not the bits you’d otherwise like to camouflage.

This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of stockings and boots, dressed up with a skinny belt to go out to dinner, or for a more casual look it’s great with flats and thick winter leggings underneath. It is a sturdy enough knit to wear layered, and is perfect for work. Treat it like a fun staple and layer with coloured long sleeve tops and stockings underneath, interesting necklaces and a wool coat over the top on a really chilly day.

Now available Instore and Online in three great colours; navy, grey and black

SIZING: Available in sizes XS-XL (8-16)
