Pattern designed by Meghann Halfmoon of Halfmoon Atelier
Ballet top DELPY is inspired in equal parts by Julie Delpy's character, Celine, in the film Before Sunrise and the ballet leotards I wore as a child. A simple basic with a flattering touch of elegance, ballet top or dress DELPY will become a versatile staple in your capsule wardrobe perfect on a warm summer day, or as a light layering piece under a cashmere cardigan on cooler days.
DELPY is an easy-to-wear camisole top that is fitted in the bust and looser around the waist and hips. As a dress, it loosely graces over your hips and has a unique rounded corner and slit. DELPY has a bust gather and thin straps with three options of back views, including a scoop back (view A), straight straps (view B) and cross straps (view C), allowing you to customize your top or dress to fit your own personal style.
