The pleated skirt is flattering on all shapes, with a fitted bodice which creates a gorgeous silhouette. Our signature side pockets make this dress both practical and fun.

Two New Eva Tops have also just arrived instore and online!

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.

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!


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.


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.


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.


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!

New Stock has Hit the Racks!

We’ve been busy little bees here at Made590 over the last couple of weeks! We’ve been picking gorgeous fabrics, designing new clothes and choosing which things to make from what. Our minds are always ticking away thinking of what is coming next and when we get deliveries like this it all pays off!

Shop the new Trixie Dresses here.


The Rizzo Dress is a brand new shape to Made590 and is part of our everyday basics range, comfy and fun with a hint of 1950’s glamour. This is a fun but classic dress which will work perfectly for work or play due to it’s unusual cut and comfy material.

Rizzo features a slash neckline, with internal facing which creates a seamless neckline that can also be worn draped into a slight cowl if you bring the sleeve up onto your shoulders. It has a cute little cuff on the sleeve, added bust darts for a perfect fit and is made from lovely soft jersey which gives a great shape and is practical for easy washing and wearing. The skirt is cut semi circular, which gives a lovely drape and a bit of swish to wear, but it’s also very dressy and flat across the front, which makes it ideal for the office or work. We love the side pockets too, because can you ever have enough dresses with pockets?

The Rizzo dress is the perfect mix of comfy and cool for all year round, as it also works layered for winter. We’ll wear ours with a long sleeve top under it or merino cardigan over it, paired with stockings and boots. She will work well for work with a cropped jacket or cardigan, and grab a plain coloured Rizzo to wear with all your bright statement jewellery. Grab a coloured or metallic belt from our new range to accessorize, they really are the perfect pairing! Shop the Rizzo dresses (along with our great Every Day range) here.
MADE590-SARAH TOPSThe Sarah top is a new shape we have created as an ode to our favourite feminine sweetheart neckline. She is perfect in every way and an all year round piece and comes in a range of lovely colours.

This new style has a lovely double layer front across the bust which means she fits and flatters in all the right places. Small gathering in the middle of the bust means she has a lovely silhouette on all sizes, and she is a nice shape for work as she isn’t too low cut or clingy. The small doubled fabric cap sleeve is a soft finish on your arm, no restrictive binding or bands, and she is feminine as well as practical, and can be worn with just about anything due to her simplicity and easy style.

Wear your Sarah top with one of our cute printed skirts on the weekend, or for the weekly run around. She is fun and cute and one of our new favourite styles at made590. Due to the lovely details she can be worn at work with different pants or even under a blazer or suit. Sarah is simple but standout top we feel bridges the gap between day and night, and we’ve made her in a range of cute plain jerseys to coordinate with your favourite prints you already own.

NEW STOCK: Trixie Shirt, Penelope, Veronica & Saski Dress, Sasha, Drew Diamond & Flora top and Julia Skirt

We’ve been very busy little bees this Spring working away on lots of lovely styles, some old and some new so that you enter the new season with something special to wear for all occasions – whether it be work, play or everything in between!

With something to suit everyone we’ve got you covered with skirts, tops AND dresses!

Some of our newer styles, that we’ve only released for the first time, are the VERONICA Dress and the TRIXIE Shirt.

The Veronica is based off our very popular Penelope Dress which is the perfect A-line shift shape dress – we call her “the shift shape dress, that people who don’t wear shifts can actually wear!”. We’ve made Veronica with a ‘v’ neckline so that she isn’t as high and can be worn by many people, especially flattering for those with a bigger bust.

The Trixie shirt which we have debuted in some gorgeous Liberty of London fabrics, is all about the detail – but with a classic button down shirt style perfect for work, dressier occasions or even as part of your weekend wear ensemble.

And some of our classics like the Drew Diamond top which can worn with the round neckline to the front, or flip it around and wear it with the diamond at the front – a two in one top! How clever is that?!

Julia Skirt – One of our best selling skirts, and we’re not surprised, with an elasticised waist, you can’t really go wrong! Super comfortable to wear, yet lovely and structured to look at.

Flora Top – She’s a pretty, little top Flora – with a scalloped collar neckline resembling a flower. Flora is a great layering piece and can be worn dressy or casual.

Saski Dress – This one is a favorite of ours here at Made590 but we don’t do her often as she uses up alot of fabric, but it is so very worth it with her gorgeous full skirt. A perfect party dress and great special occasions. She’s also great for mums who are breastfeeding as she is a button down v-neck style. You have to get in fast with Saski though, as she comes and goes very quickly!
