Women's Portuguese Flannel Robe
Not as advertised
The reviews were wonderful and I love plaid and flannel so I bought one. The medium would have fit a 1X woman. The flannel pilled with one wash and was so wrinkled it had to be ironed. I needed the robe so I cut it up and made it fit properly including removing the pockets from the sides and put them on the front.
Next time I'll go to the fabric store and make one from scratch. Very disappointing.

Warm and very large
I ordered this robe in a large (this is the size of the flannel bathrobe that I purchased a few years ago at the Vermont Country Store) When it arrived it was so HUGE that I had to return it for a medium, which is still very ample through the body of the garment, although the sleeves are the right length. Very warm and cozy and very pretty muted colors.

Love The Robe....
I fell in love with the pattern and ordered this robe in a Large size. When it came I thought it might be too big but washed it first because I thought it might shrink and fit just right. I followed the washing instructions and it did shrink more than I would have liked, especially in the length. I kept it anyway because the material is really nice and the robe is so well made I was able to drop the hem and make it a bit longer.
Anyone who orders this robe should rembember that it will shrink, but you will love it!

The perfect winter robe
I had been searching for a good quality, simple flannel robe for a couple of years so when this was featured in your catalog in October, I promptly ordered it. I was disappointed to find out it was on backorder, but the Vermont Country Store e-mails kept me informed and I decided to wait for the robe. I appreciated the kind phone call from you right before Christmas.
My wonderful robe arrived in January, when I was quite ill. The perfect gift to myself. I love it!

The flannel robe embraces all of me.
This warm robe is light on my shoulders and it keeps me warm and "toasty". The robe covers my legs to the ankles and its slevees do not intefere with my hands. My grandchildren and I like the print of the red birds on the blue background. It is a "happy" robe.

Fits like a dream:)
I had to wait for awhile to get my portuguese flannel robe because it was out of stock but it was worth the wait. I washed and dried it right away, as recommended and it fits like a dream. I'm about 5'4" and was worried it would be too long but it's absolutely perfect. It's cozy and makes my morning feel wonderful. The color is just right.
