    5 out of 5 Satin Alvernia


    Like the Jamanota swimsuit, the Alvernia dress is composed of simple shapes but to great effect. I made this one in satin (a bargain at about £1.50 per metre from The Shuttle!) and wore it with a lace blouse.

    The front and back are very low. You can add a bow or panel in the back to cover a bra if needed but I left it as designed and found it covered more than I anticipated!
