I have the robe, but not the slippers (in search of some). I definitely like the design and material. I can easily imagine it possibly being a hand me down of Ricky's, since the pattern seems a bit boy-ish. The material is a comfortable flannel, and I can see it helping keep Molly warm on winter nights. The sash is a soft twisted rope, though I foresee it being too slippery to actually stay in a bow.
