About

Beautiful crisp-white tailored cotton-linen & lace tea-length garden gown by the famous Maggy Rouff. Harmony and simplicity were cornerstones of Maggy Rouff's belief in elegance as a way of life, and the way of fashion. A truly elegant woman was in harmony with her environment and herself, and to Rouff this meant being properly dressed for every occasion. This did not mean she was conservative; rather, she believed novelty and surprise were good for fashion. Novelty when allied with taste yielded chic, but novelty without taste was only eccentric. This dress is a perfect example of her ideals. The bodice is a stunning 3/4-length sleeve design with an adorable waist-bow. I love the inverted middle-pleat tea-length skirt! This dress would be wonderful for a modern day garden wedding or summer gala.
