Every Body Shirley Shirt Seagulls
This little shape is always a popular one with staff and customers alike. Shirley is such a wonderful, easy shirt to wear whichever way you decide to, and it just FITS! A clever design with scalloped capped sleeves, you are sure to need more than one in your wardrobe rotation. The best thing is we have now added her to our Every Body range so she can be worn and loved by even more made590 fans.
FEATURES: Shirley features a well fitting bust with a great pleat detail in the centre back which allows for room in the shoulders so you should never feel restricted at the bust or across the back while wearing. She has the sweetest little cap sleeves which are scalloped, a lovely detail you don’t notice immediately. Some of her finer details include rounded collar, generous button front (that doesn’t gape because we add just the right amount of buttons to hold perfectly at the bust) and a wonderful loose body to flatter all shapes and sizes. Bust darts make for a perfectly fitting bust line as well as allowing the shape to still come in at the waist for the perfect silhouette. She also layers really well in winter and because of this she is a piece we run all year round. Shirley is our best selling shirt for all these reasons and more, you’ll love having her to wear on days where you want that effortless cool option.
HOW TO WEAR: Shirley is the perfect work blouse, dressy and smart without any effort, and looks wonderful worn with jeans or shorts in summer for a bit of fun. She layers well in winter, and looks cute tucked into our Valentina, Patsy or Sunset skirts or worn out with Kelly or Kenzie skirt shapes. We even love her worn over strappy dresses and tied up at the front. Pop her under a blazer for work, as she is a nice loose fit without being shapeless. You can also leave her untucked and belt over the top as these lovely soft fabrics work well with a slightly cinched in waist. The options are endless as she is such an easy, classic fit.
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 Ella 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.
