Brisvegas!! City of dreams – I’ve wrapped up all the things I love about my laidback Queensland hometown in this gorgeous Ellie Whittaker design – it’s drenched in colour and nostalgia. From the vibrant shades of Jacarandas and Poinciana trees, the city skyline and Kangaroo point cliffs, to the old Queenslanders and gliding Citycats – if you’ve ever loved Brisbane, you’ll find so many things to delight you in this design (you’ll even find Keneena hidden amongst the city dwellers – can you spot her?) Celebrate everything about this colourful, tree-lined river city with Brisvegas!
Designer: ‘Brisvegas!!’ is the result of a design collaboration with Ellie Whittaker. It is exclusive to Kablooie and celebrates the everyday things that we love in a whole new light and in vibrant Kablooie style, full of detail and colour.
Things to know:
- This top is relaxed fit, in a flattering style with a raised gathered waistline that sits just below the bust. It’s designed to give you plenty of ease around your curves, and not hug your figure closely.
- It has short drop sleeves and a round neckline that sits at your collarbone. The normal length is designed to sit at your hips, depending on your height.
- This top has no zips, buttons, or fastening – no yoga moves are required to get it on, just pop it over your head, shimmy it down, pop on your belt or accessories, and you’re good to go.
- Available in sizes 4-26, with larger sizes available on request. See the sizing charts for this top for more information or the sizing page for sizes and a short video on finding your perfect size.
- It’s made from 100% cotton, non-stretch, and digitally printed exclusively for Kablooie Store.
- It’s designed and individually cut and sewn in Brisbane, Australia.
- This top comes with free shipping Australia-wide, and flat rate shipping internationally.
How to Customise:
Customise your Kablooie – Once you know your size, you can choose it and add to cart. You can also choose to customise your top to suit you, with some set options. You’re an individual, so your top should work for you
Here are the FREE options, which you can request using the notes box:
- Add or take away up to 5cm from the overall length – to suit your height.
- Add or take away up to 5cm from the bodice section to work for your bust and body length.
- Make the armholes wider (normally we add about 4-6cm to the circumference of the sleeve)
- Scoop the neckline more – up to 5cm more. Please note we do not change the shape of the neckline to be square or V neck as this requires a different pattern.
- Adjust sizing to work for your body – for example. You may want to get your top in a size 16 at the top but with size 18 dimensions at the bottom if you have a small bust but generous hips.
- Please note I will contact you if your request needs more information or can’t be completed.
Here are the PAID options, which you choose by selecting the relevant tick box:
- Add sleeve length to the elbow (please note this is a piece added on to the drop sleeve)
- Add a matching scrunchie or headband.

I work hard to ensure colours are represented accurately on screen. However, please remember at times colours can look different depending on the device and screen you are viewing them on.
Each garment is cut by hand and made to order for you, from designer fabric printed on demand for Kablooie Store. Average turnaround time for individual orders is up to three weeks from order to postage but can take longer at times of high demand.
Question: Does this work as a maternity top?
Answer: It was originally designed to work better with a figure that has a small waist but much curvier hips and bottom. However, the same style does work really well as maternity wear and is likely to carry you through most of your pregnancy. Just be aware that it is non-stretch – and it may work well to add additional length to the top so it can still fully cover a pregnant belly (you can add up to 5cm for free)
Question: I’m not sure how to customise or change the top, or what options will work for me?
Answer: Customising your top is all about making small changes so it works for you. The best way to decide is to look at the standard top in the photo – would you prefer it longer? Shorter? Do you have trouble fitting your arms into armholes, or do you need more space in the bodice for a larger bust? Would you like to have a matching belt to style it? Check out what these options look like here, and then make sure you tick the options you’d like so they are added to the price of the garment when you check out. Ask for the available free options in the notes box.
Question: What do I do if the top is out of stock?
Answer: As each piece is handmade to order, stock numbers online are based on fabric available. To get a notification as soon as more fresh and fabulous fabric is delivered, go to the top of this product page, choose your size and you’ll be given the option to request a back in stock email. You’ll receive an instant alert email as soon as stock is added online before anyone else knows!
Question: How long will the top take to arrive?
Answer: As each piece is hand-cut and made to order, your new top will take an average of 3 weeks to complete, and then it will be posted out to you. This timeframe may vary, depending on the number of orders we are working on, particularly after a new product launch.
Question: How do I look after this top?
Answer: The Babydoll top is 100% cotton and can be washed in a cold machine wash, and dried in the shade. Colours do not run and are fade-resistant. Care instructions are included on the product tag for your convenience (on the lower side hem).
Tip: For longest life, I recommend you flick wrinkles out of your wet top straight after washing, hang to dry in the shade, and use a hot iron to get a crisp, beautiful finish to the cotton (yeah, we both know you’re not gonna use the iron but hey. It was worth a try!).
If you’re ready to amp up your style and supercharge your happiness, this top is kinda the answer to all of your colour dreams. Make it yours today.
