This is the Bordeaux Peplum and Dress sewing pattern from the designer Jilly Atlanta. The sewing pattern comes in sizes from 2T to size 14.
This is a real statement-maker! With its timeless form and striking knot collar, the Bordeaux makes style look easy. Dress it down with the peplum length or use it for a dressy evening wearing the vintage length. You’ll enjoy the versatility of the knee-length too – it’s perfect for her to play in or wear on school days! Any way you make it, the comfort and twirl factor of the Bordeaux will be loved!

You can dress it up or down with the different circle skirt lengths – peplum, vintage (2-3 inches above the knee), or knee. And then there’s the different sleeve lengths – short, elbow, or long! So many options, it makes the dress a year-round staple!
