DELPHY Ballet Top & Dress - PRINTED PATTERN
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.

My name is Meghann Halfmoon. I am the designer and creator behind the sewing pattern label HALFMOON ATELIER. I believe that simple design and simple choices can have a big impact: on the way we feel, on the way we live and on the world! However, choosing fashionable, socially conscious products is still harder than it should be. I can help make it easier.
Well-made foundation pieces help simplify our lives. We need less, but they add more to our closet and leave us feeling polished and put together for all occasions. We can also have a positive influence on the world by choosing to sew with sustainably and ethically made fabrics. By using ethically sourced fabric, we are helping the people – mainly women – who create our textiles. It’s just a drop in the bucket, but that bucket is full of millions of little drops.
My mission is to design simple, unique sewing patterns and facilitate sewists to source sustainable, ethical, organic and fair trade fabric as a small step toward my vision of a world in which sustainable, ethical production is simply standard.
