Summer Innocence Nightgown
This is the nicest pure cotton, and linen material. Perfect for those of us who live in very hot climates. I am astounded at the value of the material for the price I paid. Super feminine and comfortable. Washes well, and I will be buying another one from you. Thank you Vermont Country Store for carrying truly quality merchandise!

I am absolutely delighted in the simplicity of this nightgown. The truly U shaped neckline is different and, for me at least, a very flartering look. While it is true that the "ruffles" aren't as full as some other styles, they aren't intended to be really full, I don't think. THis is a very simple nightgown, not overly embellished. The cuff's are gathered only by the elastic. The hem is more "ruffled".
This is a more substantial material and it will remain to be seen by me, at least, if it can be worn in the summer.
I may very well purchase another, just in the off chance that this one wears out. I'd hate to not have this. It is that nice and comfortable and flattering.
Thanks Vermont Country Store.

a lovely gown -- enough weight to it to wear in the cooler months

Great Quality and Gorgeous
I was very impressed with this nightgown. The material is soft, yet durable. I can tell it's going to last me a long time. I have night sweats so I needed something cool and comfortable to sleep in. This is it! It's very pretty, full and romantic looking. Well made. I highly recommend this. I was very surprised at the one review that said it wasn't ruffled. It's beautiful.

This gown is not generously cut, at all. Everything is skimpy. The sleeves are cut so they do not even form a ruffles below the very skimpy elastic. The bottom and sleeve hems are not finished - merely serged - not even turned under! The body itself is barely gathered below the yoke, and cut nearly straight down, instead of fuller at the bottom. The ruffle at the bottom is also lacks fullness, making it quite a skimpy ruffle, and its one seam does not align with either of the body's side seams. This is not quality workmanship. There are no pockets. There is one ornamental feature, in the front only: lace over the seam joining the yoke and the barely gathered body, which, while not elaborate, is quite nice. Also on the plus side, the fabric is a comfortable weight and is not rough or scratchy. However, the skimpiness and lack of finishing rates an overall of only two stars.

Such fun to finally find this!
I have been looking for this exact thing for years! I had a summer gown like it 20 years ago and have wanted a new one forever - the length, the 3/4 sleeves, the yoke with feminine detail, the light material, the flounce at the bottom, etc. So excited to get this!
