New Stock: Fee tops have arrived Instore and Online!

The change of season is always an exciting time around these parts, as it means we get lots of things in the shop and Online! Tran-seasonal fashion is some of the best kind of dressing in my book, as it means you get to wear all your favourite shapes with layers galore!

This lovely, little top ‘Fee’ has hit the racks In-store and our Online store today – and she comes in three perfect fabric variations to suit all your needs. She’s a great one to wear to work with your favourite Made590 denim or plain skirt as the ‘Fee’ top features a modest capped sleeve and square neckline; perfect for those more formal or conservative occasions, yet still lots of fun in our fabric selection.

The ‘Fee’ top is also a great one to wear with a long sleeve basic underneath for those cooler days, and great with a cardi thrown over the top. She also has you covered for your weekend wardrobe, as she looks great with your best denim jeans;  ‘Fee’ is a generous length and also has great movement throughout, but still yet enough structure through bust and waist with the flattering pin tuck details.

Available in sizes: XS-XL

Gertrude Made Dresses Have Arrived!

Three new beautiful dresses have arrived instore and online, made from the gorgeous Outback Wife series of fabric from Gertrude Made. This range of fabric has a really lovely back story and has been named after women who live in the Outback and their stories. Here is a little bit of the back story behind the range from Cathi, the lady behind Gertrude Made.

blog-OUTBACK-WIFE-MADE590

“Many of the old barkcloths I’ve sewn with over the years have had women’s names on the selvedge. I always wondered if they were the names of real women and if so, who were they?

So that, combined with my belief that the more good fortune one has, the more obligation one has to give back. I decided with this opportunity I would like to give back to my fellow rural women, here, and elsewhere, by raising awareness of the reality of living life on the land.

While social media has in some ways worked towards closing the gap between city and country, I feel in another it has widened it. Oftentimes I feel that social media depicts rural life in an overly ‘styled’ way, and leaves many city folk believing it’s a leisurely ‘lifestyle’. True, it’s a life filled with joyful moments and great beauty, but it’s also a life that requires courage, resilience and strength to face the countless challenges of environment and isolation.

I hope by bringing you these women’s stories, I can play a small part in providing some balance to that ‘styled’ country life perspective, because behind the food you eat and the fibre you wear, there are real people and these people have stories and lives that don’t need editing or styling to be inspirational.

They’re my reasons behind the naming.

To finally share this collection which has taken more than 18 months to create feels much like I imagine undressing in front of a room full of strangers would. I’m laying my heart out for everyone to see and being a private person, I feel quite emotional for it all. This collection says very much who I am.

I’m truly thankful to my rural ladies for sharing their stories with me and for allowing me to share them with you.”

IMG_3310Aggie Dress – Outback Wife Elaine GreenIMG_3270Aggie Dress – Outback Wife Kirstine Blue

Get ready to meet your new favourite dress! Aggie is the big sister to Agatha, which had the same cut-out keyhole back and shaped, fitted bodice, but was a sleeveless shape with lots of party potential. We wanted Aggie to be the grown up version of our favourite party dress, with a cute capped sleeve to give just that little bit more coverage and the same perfectly gathered knee length skirt which means she will lend herself to events as well as work and weekend fun! and of course, she has pockets!IMG_2956Penelope Dress – Outback Wife Kirstine Green

Penelope features two pockets at the front of the dress and and flattering cap sleeves. This style sits just above the knee, and is an Aline skirt shape. It always features a rounded boat neckline. This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of sandals or clogs or perhaps stockings and boots for the colder days. Because of its fun and classic shape you can wear her on the weekend or even dress it up to wear to work! You are bound to stand out in the crowd in this dress – and you know we love that at Made590!

We are completely in love with this new range of fabric from Gertrude Made and think you’ll love it as much as we do!

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!

All of our new arrivals have made their way on to our racks and our online store so everyone gets a chance to see what is new. From basics ready to pair back with all of your favourite skirts and pants to some gorgeous dresses and skirts, we have you covered with pretty new things!

MADE590-trixie

Three new Trixie Dresses have arrived and in three different fabrics it is hard to choose a favourite! For a great splash of colour we have the Trixie in Dots and Boxes, The Trixie Dress in Paper Spots reminds us of Confetti thrown in the air in celebration and a rich Navy base featuring a starry night sky rounds out this cute set of Triplets! Shop the new Trixie Dresses here.

MADE590-RIZZO DRESS

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. Shop the Sarah Tops here.MADE590-SKIRTS

And last, but certainly not least are our new Bonnie and Sunset Skirts! From Coyotes and Quails to Camping – and everything in between! The Sunset Skirt is pretty much the perfect combination of two of our favourite skirts – the Side Pocket Skirt and the Kelly Skirt, with a fabulous scalloped finish. The Sunset Skirt is part of our Golden Apple range, where we reserve our most prized fabrics.

The Bonnie Skirt is one of our go to favourites at Made590! We couldn’t be happier frolicking around in this cute skirt! The Bonnie Skirt is also featured in our Golden Apple range and brings together our most special and favourite fabrics. Bonnie features side pockets with pleats to the front and back. Back zipper, belt loops on the waistband and panel to the bottom hem.

The Key to Basics!

Our new Keyhole Tee is a classic tee shape we love as an everyday basic. She is super soft, comes in a great range of colours and we’re sure you’ll love her as much as we do.

This new style is a perfect shape to wear with all your favourite made590 skirts. She has a lovely shape that is just the right amount of fit around your waist, a lovely binding at the neck which leads into the tie at the back of the neck. Below the tie is a little keyhole cut out, a perfect detail that is both fun and modest. The scoop neckline is our normal basic scoop which isn’t too low for work, and the top sits beautiful in our soft, draped bamboo. One of our softest tees to wear, she is a nice piece you can buy as a colour injection for your wardrobe.

Wear your Keyhole Tee with just about anything. We think she looks great for casual weekends with jeans, but her shape will also lend herself to a skirt well (think Kelly, Kenzi or Katie) and looks great paired with one of our printed especially. The keyhole top has a lovely little capped sleeve which will work with most styles of skirt, long or short. She will work untucked with a Kelly skirt, or even with your favourite pair of work trousers. We love her with shorts in summer, but will likely wear her tucked into all our sunset skirts and baby bonnies too.

Drew Diamond Tops Are Here!

The Drew Diamond Top is a tried and true favourite for us here at made590, we’ve run this style for the past few seasons and it’s a front-runner for the most versatile top you will ever own! Available in a range of prints and fabrics, choose the one that works for you and have fun playing with all its different looks, all year round. A brand new batch has arrived and we think you’ll love these ones as much as we do!

IMG_0719

The Drew Top features a very clever design which you can wear up to four different ways (yes, really!). One way features a lovely scoop neck front, and diamond keyhole back with a button fastening, which is simple and stylish, and works perfectly for work or a more casual look too. If you reverse the top you can wear the keyhole diamond at the front, which creates a lovely softly scooped back. The diamond at the front makes for an interesting neckline which is comfy and needs no accessories! Also looks wonderful for work as it is dressy but fun and can be worn with a blazer or cardigan over It. When wearing this way round, you can also unbutton the diamond to create little collar pieces (these can be pressed flat if you wish them to have a distinctive line all day) or you can tuck the two sides of the diamond into the neckline and create a very simple V-neck! It really is the most versatile top you will ever own and it will feel comfy to wear all these ways, as the top has been shaped to sit well and fit your bust both ways.

The Drew Top is a great piece to layer over our longer sleeved basic in cooler weather or worn as is, loosely over one of our made590 skirts! It lends itself to pants, jeans and structured skirts for work. It also works well under a cardigan in winter, we love this little top for its endless possibilities and functionality it will add to any outfit! The body of the top is loose fit, with a more fitted bust which makes it perfect for tucking in and dressing it up!

NEW STOCK: LazyBones – Ava Cardigan

The beginning of the year always means exciting things when it comes to stock!

We’ve just had a delivery (we are reporting this in real time!) from our friends at Lazybones, in Northern NSW.

The ‘Ava’ is a lovely cropped cardigan made from 100% cotton which makes the feel of this extra soft and comfortable. She comes in two striking colours; Midnight Blue and Fern green.

Ava has a pointelle knit on the front bodice of the body, making her a lovely delicate knit to look at and with enough detail to add her to your favourites in the cardigan collection.

She has a 3/4 sleeve making her the perfect companion for the inbetween, seasons – great for throwing in your bag and light weight enough to travel with. In two neutral colours, she’ll be able to be matched back with many other colours and clothing companions. Perfect to wear with your favourite dress as she sits a little past your waist, finishing at the top of your hip creating a flattering line as she is a nice and streamlined cut. Great with tops and skirts, and blouses and pants. ‘Ava’ also has a crew neck line which makes it easier for layering underneath creating a ‘no fuss’ finish.

With lovely details to finish her off like wooden buttons, she is perfect for casual and dressier occasions.

Please note that she is a shorter length cardi, if you would like to wear her oversized, please consider going up the size as she is more a of fitted structure.

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!
