Eileen West Fairy Tale Flannel Nightgown
Not grannie's flannie
My new house is miles N and gets much colder at night than my old abode. I finally decided to break down and buy a flannel nightie. My memories were of those old stiff Lanz nightgowns with high necks and collars that needed to be washed about 400 times before they became even a little bit pliable. I bought this one because it had a lower neckline and no fussy cuffs, elastic, or itchy lace. And it's a dream. Soft and pliable, warm but lightweight, easy to wear, and it's beautiful. It's lovely. I might have to buy a 2nd one as a spare.

More colors, please!
Love this nightgown! I had it in white and now have the lavender. If they come out with a different color I will buy that. Roomy around the neckline and sleeves for comfortable sleeping and LOVE the pockets.

This is by far the nicest flannel gown I've ever had. The details are beautiful...the flannel feels like a baby receiving blanket. There are no rough seams to scratch or irritate like my Lanz gown has and it washes beautifully. The sizing is very generous, I ordered my normal sleepwear size and it fits just like I want my sleepwear to fit. Now I know how nice Eileen West gowns are, they are so worth the price. I'll be ordering more.

Lovely gown but the fit is odd
I am under 5', 100 lbs. so I knew even a size small would need to be altered but...it didn't. I wanted a flannel gown for the winter and this one is beautiful - it has breathing room at the neck and is feminine but not "frilly".
First thing I did was wash it. No shrinking or fading. But I didn't need to hem the gown. I can wrap it twice around my body but the armholes are somewhat tight. Odd fit. The tightness at the armholes might lead to chafing in witch case I will return the gown. Wondering why no one else mentioned this.

warm, comfortable; a winter staple here in Montana
Love this nightgown. I wear it all winter which where I live is about 9 months! More flannel nightgowns, Eileen West!

This is such a wonderful nightgown! It is soft and cozy and makes me feel like a princess. It came at just the right time. Shortly after I received it I came down with the flu and spent days just dressed in my new and wonderful nightgown. It looks nice enough to answer the door in when someone come to call. And was so cuddly for sitting around in while I was getting over the flu. Sleeping at night was such a comfort in this cloud soft garment wrapped around me like a soothing friend.
I would highly recommend this nightgown to anyone who likes to look elegant and feel cozy at the same time. My friends envy me for my nighty!

I love love this nightgown! It is so soft and comfy and very well made. The detail around the neckline and cuffs is so pretty and adds such an elegant touch, and I especially love the pockets. I initially bought a medium and it was too big on me (I'm 5'4 and weigh 123). Keep in mind when ordering that they are made quite roomy. I exchanged the medium for a small and although it's still a little roomy, it fits fine and is gloriously comfortable. My husband said, "well, if you like it, go ahead and get another one." My kind of man!!!

I love the detailed embroidery and the softest of this nightgown.
