Our brand new piece for summer is our Ella skirt which will come with you to the beach but can be worn to Christmas parties and beyond. A simple elastic waist, side pockets and a “good to go” look which means this will look great even after chucking it into your beach bag. Ella is part of our Every Body range and is sure to work wonders on all sizes and shapes!
FEATURES: Ella's key features include a gathered elastic waist which is sewn into place to avoid any gathering issues, soft side pockets and a lovely mid length perfect for hot summer days. We love the simplicity of this design, which is good for a range of occasions, but we imagine her for the beach all summer long. Perfect to pull on over our cozzies for the long walk back to the car, but long enough to run around after the kids on the beach too. We love Ella because she can be dressed up with a pair of clogs, but also looks beautifully effortless with flat sandals. Ella comes in relaxed sizing, which means the stretchy elastic waistband with fit a range of sizes, similar to the fit of our Valentina skirts.
HOW TO WEAR: We picture Ella being rolled up into your beach bag and chucked on over your cozzies all summer long. She will also be the perfect accompaniment to some of our simple tees such as Rizzo, Easy and even Ripley Reversible will look amazing tucked into this great swishy skirt. Ella will be a well worn favourite as she is SO easy to wear and has just the right amount of swish due to the beautiful drapey fabrics we use. Because of this amazing fabric this skirt looks dressy without any effort, something we like to think we excel at designing here at made590. Ella is a simple but dressy shape which will take you from day to night with a change of accessories, but we did design her to be thrown on with our swimsuit for the beach. We also love the sewn in elastic band which won't pucker up and makes the gathers look flat and even. The length is very versatile sitting at the calf but covering knees, which means it can be worn for a number of occasions and with various shoe choices. We hope you love Ella as much as we do!
PRINT: Seagulls by Josephine Samperi.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Josephine Samperi is a Sydney based artist who works mostly in pastels, watercolour or gouache and is inspired by the world around her. Jo feels particularly inspired when she’s on secluded beaches, surrounded by nature, or in stark contrast when exploring her favourite busy Sydney spots, being able to while away her time with her sketch book capturing just about anything that catches her eye. Her great love is painting Plein Air (or outdoor) in a quiet spot while feeling unselfconsciously invisible from the world around her. Jo drew these beautiful seagulls while house (and Schnauzer) sitting for a family at Maroubra beach and we truly feel she has captured their personality in these deceptively simple but expressive lines of colour. We knew immediately these cheeky iconic birds would make the most perfect fabric for our Artist Series range and we are so excited to launch the range with Jo's Seagulls.
FABRIC: 100% bamboo. Lightweight and cool in the heat. Same fabric base as the Evelyn tops and Edie Skirts. This fabric has a tendency to tighten in the wash and may need to be steamed or ironed on a low to medium steam setting to relax the fibres again after washing. Please do not panic as it will come back to its original size and shape. Also if you stretch and flatten your garment while wet after a delicates wash and hang it on a hanger to dry this will also mean it should keep its original length and size much better.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the large scale of this print, print placement will vary so please be aware it may not look exactly the same as the garment photographed and may include elements which are upside down, sideways or otherwise different to the photos shown on the website.
