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.

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!

New Stock: Pippa Dress

When it comes to versatility we’ve got your back. We’re not about one wear items when it comes to our Made590 designs so we always try to pack in as much detail that balances between fun and practical, and we’ve designed a goodie just in time for the change of season.

With the cooler days slowly leaving us, but the radiant heat of Summer not quite here, we wanted to create that perfect tran-seasonal piece to get you through that in between season; and what better way to do this than with a pinafore!

The new Pippa Dress is a take on our very popular Penelope who is a shift shape by nature. We’ve added in a cut off sleeve so you can wear in the Summer or layer with one of our Every Day Basics underneath. And we’ve gone that one step further and made this reversible just to make it that even more versatile. Team it back with your favourite belt, a cardigan or even a flutter sleeve underneath for that sweet, ladylike pinafore feel.

Dress up with your favorite pair of wedges, a pair of clogs, sandals, boots or your favourite runners.

With her button down detail and v-neck shape on one side she’s got you all sorted for casual Summer days, the flip side has a square neckline perfect for more conservative occasions and perfect to wear to work.

Let’s hear it for ‘Immy’! Our new Dress shape Instore and Online now!

ImmyHave you seen what we’ve been up to lately? If not, here’s a recap! We’ve been busy working away on a lovely new style called the ‘Immy’ Dress.

She’s such a great shape as you can wear her all year round’ from Summer right through to Winter. The higher bateau neckline means the extra fabric keeps you warmer in the colder weather, but also lends itself to being able to wear to dressier or more formal occasions.

Her cinched in waist detail, gathered and full skirt and knee length is reminiscent of a classic 50’s shape dress. If you love the Imogen, you’ll this dress shape!

Not too full to create excess fabric around your hips, but full enough to add that fun and flirty factor! She shows off lovely, lady curves perfectly, yet in a comfortable non-restrictive way with her detailed shape and cut.

Easy to wear in many different ways. Team back with a long sleeve layer underneath, like our Every Day Keyhole Tops, your favourite Made590 cardigan and a pair of stockings or leggings. Or wear as is, and let the detail show itself off. She also has the perfect amount of arm coverage with her unique sleeve length and shape to wear as is without needing anything else underneath.

In an array of different patterns and colours, there’s something for everyone!

NEW: ‘Every Day’ Katie Skirt

KATIEA ‘tried and tested’ shape which we’ve had for many years, is now part of our Every day range because, well, it’s one of those staples that you can quite literally wear everyday; Monday through to Sunday – for work wear and for weekend wear!

We call Katie – “the skirt for people who love to wear jeans, but want to transition to skirts’! The Katie is one of the most versatile skirt shapes in our range with customers buying both our denim and black stretch denim drills to alternate through the week; they love them THAT much!

She is a lovely tapered shape, not quite pencil, not quite A-line. She’s somewhere in between and works perfectly for work or dressy events. She has a flattering wide waistband, tapered silhouette, front side pockets with cute placket detail, a doubled panel hem line that sits just past the knee and a zip at the back. Quite possibly the most flattering skirt for those who like the idea of a pencil skirt, but have never been able to find one that works. This skirt has a similar feel, but is an easy fit as it’s made from wonderful stretch cotton drill with two small tucks to allow for movement on your hips. The pockets are placed on the hips to give wiggle room and comfort where other skirts can pull and hug too tightly.

You can wear this skirt two different ways;  1) either on the hips or 2) may be worn more mid-waisted, depending on the size you buy. It is suggested you go down a size if you would like a higher waist fit. Wear Katie with your favourite work blouse or button down shirt, we love her with our Shirley shirts, Trixie shirts and even our Indigo, Ginny blouses. Team back with a Felicity or Every Day Phoebe Top as  your go-to work attire for the Winter weather or layer an Every Day Keyhole Top and match with a caridgan and coat.   Tuck your tops into the flattering wide waistband and create a seamless contemporary look which will flatter in all the right places. Wear Katie to a special event and feel comfy and cool, she loves to be out and about, and is comfy enough to throw on for weekend fun too.

SIZING: Available in sizes XS – XL. The XS is new to the Katie skirt range!

FABRIC: 100% stretch drill

Aggie Dress makes a return in Gertrude Made Fabric!

I think it’s safe to say we’ve had a pretty breathtaking Winter here in Sydney. Wouldn’t you agree? With the sun blaring and a slight, winter breeze it’s kind of been the perfect weather to wear all of your favourite outfits for weekend frolicking in the park and evening dates!

Who ever said you can’t dress how you want in the Winter?! Frocks and skirts and all the colour galore, we say! And to celebrate we’ve released a second lot of our very popular Gertrude Made fabric in the Aggie Dress. She flew in and out when she was first released, so we worked hard on getting a second lot for all those people who missed out.

This is her in both colours; the Kirstine Blue on the left and Elaine Green on the right.

If you haven’t already got the Aggie dress, she’s the perfect tran-seasonal piece as you can wear her in the warmer weather, but can also layer in the cooler weather as well. She has a modest neckline – not too high, not too low – and a cinched in gathered waist making her the perfect feminine silhouette. This style makes it easy to wear a basic underneath without it appearing too bulky, perfect teamed back with a cardigan or coat. You can easily transform this into a special occasion dress with a metallic or neutral belt available online or instore.

Get in quick if you don’t want to miss out! She’s a special one this, Aggie in the most beautiful barkcloth fabric!

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.

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.
