The Delphine (aka the shirt-length sister to the Celeste Dress) is the epitome of the statement top. The straight, boxy cut of the top is super flattering and just unassuming enough to draw attention to the Delphine's main attraction: the sleeves. Constructed by sewing a circle-shaped piece of fabric onto a regular sleeve, the sleeves demand attention (but not, you know, too much attention). The keyhole on the back of the shirt is cinched at the top with a vintage mother-of-pearl button and is just long enough to be dramatic, but not too long that you have to go out of your way to find suitable undergarments. And the slightly cropped nature of the Delphine makes it a perfect pairing with high-waisted pants like our Henri Pants, but it isn't too cropped that you can't tuck it in either.

This top is made of handloom fabric woven by hand in India. Handloom was the way basically all fabric was made from the dawn of time until the invention of electricity and modern milling techniques; it requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship, using the same techniques that were used centuries ago. The handloom process uses zero electricity, and the industry employs many skilled workers in rural areas of India where other jobs are scarce, making handloom super sustainable in addition to being breathtakingly beautiful. (Read more about handloom on our blog here.)
This particular fabric is a blend of khadi (i.e., hand-spun) cotton and just a little bit of tussar (i.e., wild) silk. It's soft and gauzy, warm and breathable, rustic and refined, all at the same time. The fabric is ivory-colored and has stripes of black, blue, grey, green, and tan; it pairs well with black, light and dark denims, and our Mulberry Twill fabric.
In addition to the fabric, this style uses 100% organic cotton thread, one vintage mother-of-pearl button, and organic cotton labels.

The Delphine is most fitted in the bust area, so use your bust measurement when determining your size. If your bust measurement falls in between sizes, I recommended sizing up.
