Beautiful robe. I love the vintage lingerie from the 30s and 40s, it looks so elegant and flattering, not like a sack. I enjoyed your first review.

Very pretty and very unusual--you could almost "receive guests" in that nice robe. Can't get over the shoulder pad thing!

A lovely robe and a lovely fashion era. I love shoulder pads to this day, though of course haven't worn any in a good long while! :)

That looks lovely; that pattern would make a great casual dress as well with a couple changes.

OMG I just discovered vintage patterns like this week. I am crazy over them, particularly the 40's. I ordered a vintage bathing suit. Very nice choice of fabric. I hadn't thought of ordering vintage fabric as went the whole 9 yards! Cool! Interesting about the sizing. Makes you wonder if people were just smaller back then.

Lovely vintage robe with great details. I love the red contrasts. The instructions to include shoulder pads made me chuckle. I can't imagine wearing a robe with shoulder pads! How things have changed. Thanks for the detailed review.
