Women's Eileen West French Rose Cotton Knit Nightgown
In Love with this Gown!
I bought this gown last year and feel so special every time I wear it. The pink and black is actually quite feminine--it keeps me snug and I wear it all year except for Summer. Eileen West's quality is unbeatable!!

Not like the Eileen West I've known
I want to start out by saying that I love Eileen West's gowns. I have several. But this one is just disappointing. It's pretty enough and the cotton is soft and substantial to wear in the winter. But the cut is frumpy and it's way shorter than the picture shows. It also shrank after two washings and now it's really short which makes me feel even dumpier in it and colder on snowy nights. I read all the reviews and everyone seemed to love it so I bought it. But really I don't think it's up to the same standards as some of her other gowns. Sorry but it only gets 3 stars from me.

Love, love this nightgown
All my life I have loved nightgowns. My children and grandchildren all know I call my nightgowns my "friends." Hosting Christmas morning in our nightclothes, I wanted to have a new friend. I found Vermont Country Store when I did an Internet search. I was impressed with what I saw. This is the first (of many I am sure) that I have purchased from VCS. This nightgown is the best quality nightgown I have ever had. It is my comfortable dress up "friend." Thank you Vermont Country store!

I like that this nightgown is dark in color. When women wear nightgowns they generally do not wear bras. Most women, particularly the buxom ones, do not look better without their bras, and the dark color hides our body flaws much better than the light pastels. What I have a problem with is calling this nightgown a "knit" as its knit is so tight as to be more like a woven product. When I think of a "knit" I think very stretchy T-shirt material, and this material is a much tighter weave and inflexible than that. So, it is in fact not as comfortable as I had expected and I also find the sleeves around the upper arms a bit on the tight side.

Very comfortable. Soft, supple material that is heavy enough for winter but not at all bulky. Looks good too!

I bought this nightgown last season because I loved the color, print and style. This is the second Eileen West gown I've bought. It will be the Last. The length has shrunk over 5 inches and the sleeves, which hung down past my fingertips when new, now barely reach my wrists. I wash on warm and put through the dryer only about 5 minutes and it just keeps getting shorter. Wish I could return it. Only gave it 2 stars instead of 0 since I still like the pattern

Love this gown!
As others have noted, the jersey knit does not stick to sheets (or to me!) and is perfect for cool/cold southern nights. While it would be nice if there were a robe to match, this is heavy enough to keep all your secrets under wraps. It washes beautifully (though mine has been washed so much, the colors are beginning to fade a bit). A little pricey, but worth it. Pretty, feminine, and practical -- I'll be ordering another soon.

Excellent quality, great fit
This lovely gown is heavier than I expected, which is nice for winter. The fabric and garment are quality all around and I'd buy this again. The knit is comfortable for sleeping and for lounging, and it's like brand new after washings. I like the color; it's nice to see something different and more sophisticated. The gown has lovely details that don't show up well in the photo.
