Rated 5 out of 5Â by Love Great Pyrenees The perfect flannel gown
This is my second nightgown in the same style. The neckline is high enough to stay warm in a cold room. The pockets are generously sized and unobtrusive. The fabric is excellent -- tightly woven and brushed on both sides. The purple color is lovely, with a hint of plum shade. The lace on the wrists is soft, not scratchy on the The stitching is tight and straight. I am 5'3" and the length is slightly above my ankles, so I don't trip over the fabric. I think these gowns are cut a wee bit larger than Lanz gowns.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by debbers The Good, The Bad, but definately NOT the ugly
I received the Forget Me Not gown and "matching" robe in Peony from my best friend for Christmas. Here's the good: great quality, beautifully put together, impeccable embroidery and warm as toast for my Minnesota winters. Here's the bad: the buttons are very tiny so Arthritic hands will have a hard time with them. The sleeves are a bit shorter than long sleeve and the neck is a little small. I have to unbutton the neckline's top two buttons, just to get it over my head and I have arthritis, so it's a pain, literally. The gown and the robe do not match. My robe is a darker shade; more like burgundy and the gown is more deep fucshia. The beautiful embroidery on the trim of the robe is a different pattern than the all-over print of the gown. The way that the trim is made is a bit uncomfortable around my neck. A shawl collar would have been a better design choice. That being said, I decided to keep it because it is absolutely beautiful and very high quality and it was a gift from my best friend in the world. VCS very graciously offered to let me return it even after I had washed it and worn it. I will just wear them separately. As for the buttons; I just leave them open.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by New England fan Quality hard to find anymore
I thought they didn't make things of this quality anymore. I have bought three of these over the last couple of years and they are so pretty and so very well made. I'm about to order another in the new color purple.
They have so many dainty details, from the lace trim, the real shell buttons, the buttoned cuffs, pockets!, the quality of the fabric and more. Plus they are very warm during our New England winters.
They are not cheap but for the quality and attractiveness, they are more than worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lady of the House Wonderful softness, lovely design!
This may be the one winter nightgown that has all
the features one might hope for. I just ordered one in another color, because i was so pleased with the first.
So many gowns look fine, but after laundering are not comfortable and colors bleed into any white in the fabric. I'm glad to see the cold nights coming, because
my sleeping hours will be enjoyed in the cloud like
softness of these Eileen West gowns. They are well worth the price!

This has been the coldest winter in a hundred years, and this nightgown is my favorite. I'm taking it with me to visit my new grandson in Virginia next week - it is that wonderful. (I don't want to take the chance that it will be a cold spring down south.) This nightgown is pretty and warm and comfortable - and soft enough for me and the new baby. I just don't have enough words to describe how wonderful it is.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Krist Adding to my flannel nightgown wardrobe
I have purchased several flannel nightgown for the cold winter Wisconsin nights. Eileen West has the best quality, and are SO COMFORTABLE. I gave my mom a couple, and even though she lives in Arizona, she sometimes gets chilly in the morning. When we talked a couple of weeks ago, she mentioned that it was cool enough for her to wear one of the flannel nightgown, and was very happy to have it.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mary from MA This Eileen West nightgown is not the same quality as the Lanz nightgowns!
I am a fan of both Lanz nightgowns and The Vermont Country Store, but this Eileen West nightgown was a real disappointment. I have several Lanz nightgowns which are warm and wonderful purchased from VCS. They have lasted a long time and I assumed this Eileen West nightgown would be of the same quality. It's expensive - more than the Lanz nightgowns, so one would assume it's the same quality, but it's very light material, and is not warm. It's pretty, but you can tell it won't last like the Lanz nightgowns. It has tiny buttons that are meant to look dainty and pretty, but are not meant for repeated use. Within a few wearings, the buttons would be falling off. I was very disappointed in the quality of this nightgown, especially for the price! I will only order Lanz from now on!
