Tartan Flannel Long Robe with Snap Front
Perfect robe for my mother
This winter my mother (age 77) was shopping for a robe. She bought and returned a number of robes as none of them fit the bill. She lamented to me and my sisters that "they just don't make robes like they used to."
These are the criteria she was looking for: not a wrap-around style, sleeves that were not too long, full length, big pockets, no heavy fleece, no stand-up collar, fitted at the shoulders, full around the waist, cotton flannel.
I took a chance and ordered this robe for her for Christmas because it seemed to meet all of her criteria. It was as if it was custom made for her! And sure enough, she opened the gift, put on the robe and loved it. I waited a few days to see if the robe would present a fatal flaw, but so far it has not!
Thank you for selling the perfect robe just like they used to make. :)

This robe is perfect. Warm, cute and easy to wear and wash! I got size large even though I usually wear XL. It fits perfectly.

For The "Hard To Please".I Love This Robe!
I ordered 2 of these robes,one for my Mom and one for myself.I am very pleased with the quality and fit of this robe.It's just right in weight which makes it very comfortable and the cotton flannel is just warm enough.It's very lady-like in length and the buttons are a plus for my Mom with her arthritis.This is the first time that I have bought from The Vermont Country Store and I have to say they will be the first place I look next time.GOOD PURCHASE!!

My own LONG winter robe
For many years, in the winter, I've worn an old terry cloth robe of my husband's that didn't fit. This year, I spotted the exact robe I wanted in the catalogue so got it and have worn it in the evenings and the mornings since Chistmas! I'm so pleased with my new tartan robe!

Only one problem
Love, love, love this warm robe. Enjoy the sleeve length for working in the kitchen. Snaps are good most of the time. The only problem I have is the garment length. It was good at first, but after washing, it shrank and was no longer the lovely ankle length that I had loved originally.

Just what I wanted
Perfect style for me. 100% cotton soft flannel, great snaps. Handy pockets. I have one in each of the two colors. They wear well, and I just bought another. How about a different print? It has been years of the same two.

Just what I wanted
Like so many others here, I found this robe to be just what I wanted, and after several months I'm still happy with it. It was much prettier before the first wash, but there are so many pluses with it, I don't mind. The snap front (5" apart), the 3/4 sleeves, the good-sized pockets, the collar, the weight, the color - it's all outstanding. If there were another in a different color, I would buy it for a spare.

This robe is perfect. The flannel is soft and is a nice weight for all year round wear. I love the quarter length sleeves, the deep pockets and the snap closure. I am mid 50 in age. I am 5'4". I normally wear a 1X or 16W and the size charts suggest a 2X but that was too big, returned it for a 1X and it fits great. This is the best robe I have had since I was a kid. I love it. Wish it came in more colors.
