Lanz Lady Rose Flannel Nightgown
If you have ever sewn a garment in home ec class, you will recognize the quality of the flannel, the care and attention spent on button holes, seaming and facings. What a pleasure to find a garment carefully sized and crafted at a fair price. 50 years ago this would be common; today it's rare indeed.

I have been buying Lanz nightgowns for my daughter for 20 years. She loves them and looks forward to getting a new one every year for Christmas. And I love getting them for her.

Made for Her
My mother recently entered into a care home and was in desperate need of a nice gown. I purchased 3 gowns before discovering the Vermont Country Story. The 3 gowns were all returned and my Mother stated that the one from Vermont Country Store "Was made just for me." She loooooooooooooves it! Everything about it satisfies her needs: length, fabric, color, and especially the high neck. Thank you Vermont County Store for offering a beautiful gown "just for my mother."

I can't believe this is a Lanz
I love Vermont Country Store and I adore Lanz nightgowns and nighties. You can imagine my dismay when I received this nightgown and tried to sleep in it (after washing it with Woolite and softener and air drying it). The material is both thin and rough, not at all what I expect from Lanz. The ruffle at the bottom looks pretty, but the seam of it is a constant irritant both lying down and standing; I am always aware of it. I finally gave up and got up at 2:30 in the morning and changed into another Lanz gown in order to be able to get some rest. I'm sad to say that this is what I would expect from a no-name manufacturer at a third of the price. I hope this is a one-time error in product design and not a sign of things to come from my favorite nightgown manufacturer.

Better, Not Best
Lanz gowns and PJ's have been my favorite nightwear for many years. I ordered this gown because of the 54" length. I like the high neck button opening and the length. The ruffle at the bottom is too much fabric, and I agree with other reviewers that the fabric may not be as soft as Lanz's usual standard. I much prefer the traditional design of the cranberry Tyrolean gown with the straight hem which I have bought several times over the years. Lanz, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

NOT UP TO LANZ NORMAL QUALITY
I was disappointed upon opening this gown, as the usual extreme soft feel of the Lanz products was not there. I can tell when a fabric is quality as I am a seamstress & this is not the same quality I am used to from Lanz in a flannel gown. I am going to keep it though...it is plenty long for my 5'8" frame....falls right at my ankles...will not be heat drying though, just fluff, perhaps it will be less stiff after a wash or two....hope it does not shrink badly like other "cheap" flannels.
