Rated 5 out of 5Â by Careful Reader Comfortable, beautiful nightgown of substantial fabric
I read all the reviews before I bought this nightgown, so I wasn't surprised when I opened the package and felt how coarse the fabric was. I appreciated the reviews about how the fabric wasn't transparent.
I find it quite comfortable for summer, but I live in a coastal climate. I also think the construction is high quality. I washed the gown several times, adding white vinegar, to soften the fabric before wearing. The length is not too short and not so long that you step on the hem if you bend your knees.
I love it, and might take a clue from the customer who purchased a second one before her first one wears out. Another winner from Vermont Country Store!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NI too hot for summer
This gown is advertised as a summer gown, but is made of a very heavy fabric that is too hot for sleeping in summer.
Also the elastic on the sleeves is so tight that it is uncomfortable on my forearms and leaves marks.
Not my idea of a summer gown.

This gown has been very durable, comfortable and washes well. Bought two more this time because I had to wait several months because it was unavailabe.Joan Toms River

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PennyAnnie complete comfort
This is the second one of these nightgowns for me. The first one is still being worn, but I don't want to take a chance of not being able to replace it in the future. It is complete comfort on the warmest nights but modest enough to sit around in. The softness increases with each washing, although I found it comfortable from the start.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Maine Lady Coarse Fabric
Many years ago I received a similar gown from the Vermont Country Store which I recently had to retire. That gown was made of a soft cotton. This gown was much coarser, like a linen jacket. Nice, but not what I expected when ordering. I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HumanBehan Great fabric, questionable construction
The fabric gets softer with each wash and is a pleasure to put on each evening. However, the buttons just fall off because they're sewn on so poorly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Agnes in Dupont PA My Second One!
Before my present one wears out--probably never--I bought a second to have on hand. The gown softens over time and is warm in winter and cool in summer. Love it! Love it!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Optimistic one Looks like summer...feels like winter
I was looking forward to a nice light cotton nighty, but got a heavy almost like burlap course material nighty. Sorry I bought it. And sorry I have to review it this way.
