Dd and I picked this up yesterday and it is very beautiful and versatile. The robe's colors really compliment Cécile's complexion. The nightgown I have is flannel but it does not feel rough, nor is it soft. So I would say it is a mid grade flannel.

The nightgown is a soft flannel. The pink lace at the neckline and cuffs is more delicate looking that how it appears online. The shrug/robe is silky. The slippers are easy to put on, but stay on. Grade A+

Bed Jacket: A-
This is a very pretty piece. Itâs made of a lightweight, silky material in a light pink colour. The pattern features darker pink vines, flowers, and dots with a few splashes of green. The short sleeves are double tucked, which I think is a nice detail. The whole garment is trimmed in ruffled, dark pink silk trim. It ties closed with a silky ribbon. It falls to a flattering length, hitting at about the dollâs hips.
My only complaint is that the fabric feels like it would snag very easily. Iâve been exceptionally careful since I got it and Iâve managed not to snag it yet, but I always find myself nervous when handling it. I also wonder what the logic of putting such a lightweight jacket over a long-sleeved, flannel nightgown is, but Iâm hardly an expert in historical fashion. It looks nice and thatâs enough for me.
I really like this nightgown! It reminds me a lot of the PC gowns in its simplicity and fabric. Itâs made of sturdy, heavy white flannel that feels warm and comfy. The neck, sleeves, and hem are lined with pink lace. The yoke is decorated with pink trim and a ribbon. I especially love the growth tucks at the bottom â just a nice, period authentic detail.
It opens in the back with Velcro and is cut roomily enough to fit a variety of dolls (I havenât tried it on any of my PC girls, but it looks like itâll fit).
These might be some of my favourite slippers! Theyâre made of pink yarn and feel pretty warm. The soles have some structure to them, which I appreciate for easier dressing and because the dolls seem to stand better in something with a little structure. The tops look turned down and the front is decorated by a dark pink bow. Theyâre cute, they match the outfit, and they look functional. What is there to complain about?
This retailed in 2011 for $28, which was pretty standard for sleepwear at the time. Itâs well-made and comes with enough pieces that I think thatâs a fair price. I got lucky and got it in a lot of clothing, so I paid something like $10 for it, which Iâm obviously pleased about. Thereâs usually at least one floating around on the secondary market at any given time and they seem to be priced at around $40, which I also donât think is unreasonable for a retired set like this.
This is a lovely pyjama set. Iâm not the biggest fan of the material on the jacket, but I love the look of this outfit. Itâs cosy, itâs warm, and its elegant while still maintaining a certain simplicity. Now that Cécile has joined my household, Iâm not sure if Caroline will be able to continue wearing it. It looks good on a variety of dolls and works for quite a few of them. I love having this in my collection!
Yum! Sweets in bed!
