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.
Light-weight wovens, such as double gauze, cotton lawn, rayon or linen. It would also be lovely in satin, silk or velvet! The DELPY pattern can easily be adapted to knits by simply dropping a full or partial size, depending upon the stretch content.
