NEW: Every Day Singlets

When Chris  told me that Made590 once made a singlet with flat stitching, thicker straps and they came in a variety of colours – I was very intrigued to see these in the flesh and nab one, or five in every colour!

You can’t go past an Every Day basic in the wardrobe – they make getting dressed for work in the morning so much easier, they’re easy travelling pieces and they’re great for summer days to throw on with your favourite pair of denim jeans, shorts or denim skirt; Kenzi, Kelly, Katie and our new Jeanie skirt all spring to mind.

For those of you who don’t like to pattern clash, they are the easiest piece to wear back with printed skirts and they come in a variety of colours to suit your needs!

Available in sizes XS-XL.

New in: Agatha Dress

We’ve been busy around these parts lately juggling new styles, markets, getting ready for Christmas and working on our new fabric print for our very special milestone Birthday next month – we turn 13!

To celebrate we’ve released our Lucky 13 print in all of our favourite shapes – and of course we had to include a special pink number in one of Kell’s favourite shapes – the Agatha.

Agatha is the perfect Summer dress as she has a thick sleeveless detail with a ‘u’ cut out around the back –  the great thing about this cut is that you have the added benefit of being able to wear a a bra as the design ensure no bra staps show creating a perfect line from front to back whilst being supportive and holding you in. With it’s knee length skirt and fitted waist, she’s the perfect party dress for end of year Summer & Christmas gatherings!

And those with a keen eye will also notice a little bit of Rifle Paper x Cotton & Steel magic in the below picture too. The ‘Bon Voyage’ print is the epitome of Summer holidays with fun pineapples, beach bags, sunnies and hats all featured throughout the fabric.

Get in quick as we are limited in sizes with this cut!

Available Instore and Online now!

NEW IN: Sally Scallop Dress – the perfect summertime companion

Those who shop with us regularly know that the Sally Dress is a staff favorite of both Christina and Nat’s – quite possibly our all time favourite Made590 dress!

They both wait all year for this fun and flirty dress to be put into production and own a lot of different fabrics of this shape.

With it’s sweetheart neckline it has a feminine, vintage feel – and the scalloped sleeve is just too cute; adding that extra bit of detail!

The Sally is especially popular because of the shearing detail through the back – making it a versatile one to wear for all shapes and sizes, and for those with a bigger bust as  it allows it to stretch and give more through the waist and bust. If you love the dress and all of its fun details, but are after arm coverage – this shape looks super sweet teamed back with a flutter sleeve underneath or perfect with a ballet wrap over the top!

With it’s skirt just hitting the knee, it makes for the perfect party dress to wear for Christmas celebrations and end of year summer parties and festivities.

And those with a keen eye will also notice a very special Lucky 13 print, designed and illustrated by Kirbee Lawler for Made590’s 13th birthday celebrations coming up next month.

New Dress Style: Lacey Dress

We have a new dress that has joined the Made590 family – her name is Lacey and she’s the perfect addition to the summer wardrobe.

With a special lacing detailing at the back, it’s the perfect companion to wear in the Summer heat. With it’s thicker strap it’s a great one to wear if you are bustier because it really holds you – you also can still wear a bra with this dress without the straps being visible. We’ve also included a wrap around belt that you can wear either with it pulled to the back, which really cinches in your waist and flattens your tummy – or you can bring the belt to the front or side to create a cute bow or tie.

The Lacey dress also finishes with a structured, paneled skirt making it quite the statement dress and perfect for dressier occasions.

Perfect to wear as a casual dress with sandals or dressed up with your favourite pair of clogs or wedges.

Also a very versatile piece to wear in the cooler weather with a long sleeved basic underneath. If you don’t like showing your arms, team this dress back with an every day ballet wrap or  flutter sleeve top.

SIZING: XS-XL

New in: Ripley Reversible Tee

If you haven’t noticed we’re all about style, versatility and practicality here at Made590! We love the summer holidays as it gives us the much needed time off with family and friends which is why we design Summer favourites that don’t only look good, but are practical, too! Our Ripley Reversible Tops are a great piece to pack for the summer holidays in more than one colour as you can wear it throughout the day with the rounded, more casual neckline and then flip it around the other side for a deeper v neck line, perfect for those who are bustier and also after a dressier option. Wear the rounded neckline during the day when your lazing by the pool or at a BBQ with friends and switch it around to the V-neck with your favourite statement necklace; team back with one of our printed skirts, tailored shorts or 3/4 pants for dinner parties and even a work wear option.

You’ll find the Ripley’s also a very easy travel companion because of the lightweight fabric we produce her in, which also make them very cool to wear in the Summer heat.

The Ripley’s are part of our Every Day Range as they’re a great basic to have all year round.

Get in quick though, as these do get whipped up fairly quickly!

 

 

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)

NEW IN: Laura Dress

Can you believe this week we had a 33 degree day?! Although we’re still in Spring, Summer is coming! And to celebrate the warmer days we’ve released one of our staff and customer favourites; the Laura Dress. She’s a popular one across the board for so many reasons and really is one of the most versatile shapes we make. With the shearing detail at the back and side, it provides the dress with extra allowance and give, catering to a wider size range from XS (8)-XL (16/small18). It’ also ideal for breast feeding mums as it has a button on the strap that you undo for feeding convenience. The button detail isn’t too obvious, so you don’t need to compromise style for practicality. The button detail on the sleeveless strap also mean you can wear this dress like a pinafore or tunic and wear a long sleeve basic or t-shirt underneath for those days that are a little cooler, or if you’d like arm coverage. Perfect teamed back with one of our ballet wraps, too!

The skirt is beautifully structured with its box pleats making it the perfect dress to wear for special occasions as it has just the right amount of fullness for formal wear. With pockets, and a back sip detail she has all the right features, in a no-fuss easy and comfortable shape to wear.

She comes in five different fabrics and is available in store and online now! Get in quick, as these get snapped up real fast!
