Slumber Birds 'n Berries Nightgown
Mom's favorite nightgown
My mother often wished for a flannel night gown she had some years ago and when I saw this in your catalog I knew I had to take a chance as the description matched my mother's request.
WHAT A WINNER! The flannel was the perfect weight for cold Ohio winters and the length was perfect for my 5'2" mom as I was concerned about her tripping on the hemline - no worries!
She has already washed it several times and the gown keeps its shape and only becomes more soft and more comfortable. Given she is a bird lover the pattern was perfect. The pockets are a bonus!

Not what I expected
This nightgown has a pretty pattern and great pockets on the side, however it is not good quality. After minimal wear and gentle laundering in cold water, the fabric began to pill significantly and it shrank about two inches. I also found a very large clump of lint from the fabric in the lint catcher of my dryer. I have never seen anything like it!! The product does not live up to manufacturer's claims of quality. I've worn these nightgowns over the years and have noticed a distinct decline in quality.

it does get cold in California
I've bought lots of other flannel gowns, they all end up in the rag bag after a year or two. I finally decided to get what my grandmother always sent us and am glad I did. Bought 3 more for my sisters. Could not be happier. Cozy and softer than anything else I have tried.

For my 90 year old Mother
Got this for her along with a shoulder shrug that I thought she might enjoy. She loves it and says" its made of that oldfashioned real good flannel I just loved as a child. And the cosy is nice too. Dont have to get dressed so soon in the morning to get warm."

This nightgown is very pretty, but the neckline is MUCH too low, cut out way too far. It almost falls off my shoulders. It is so low that I have to wear a T shirt underneath to keep warm. I ordered a size M, which is my customary size, but the nightgown is just cut too low. I have been trying to think of a way to alter the neckline to make it higher, but have not thought f a solution yet.

What a wonderful Christmas gift! I love it
I received two nightgowns and a robe from my husband. I can never go back to other nightwear after wearing Ellen Tracy and Lanz. The fabric is like no other.

Christmas Gift for my 98 year old mother
It's so hard to find flannel pj's or nightgowns anywhere anymore so I was happy to discover them here. I decided to order a nightgown, thinking the fit would be less critical.
I think she'll be really pleased with it. The flannel is nice and heavy ... like years ago. At her age keeping warm is important. And the gown itself is really feminine and pretty ... just like she is.

Have long loved Lanz of Salzburg gowns for quality of flannel, comfy cut and overall coziness. This particular gown has two problems. 1) Neckline is too low and open. Because of the gown's weight (a good quality), the slightest little bend forward reveals all underneath. If worn in the presence of any but the MOST intimate, modesty would require wearing a cami or tee underneath, rather diminishing the pleasure of the soft, rich flannel on skin. 2) The sleeves have a pretty detail near the cuffs, but no button or elastic to tighten it. Makes it easy for sleeves to get in the way while eating, washing hands, etc. I'm resignedly keeping this baby (the print <3 ), but I won't be ordering this style again.
