For the country girl at heart, here is our newest chenille robe design! This is cut from a vintage Laura Ashley robe pattern which we slightly modified to give it a past-meets-present silhouette.
We toned down the puff sleeves, narrowed the facings, appliqued beautiful Cabin Crafts pink roses and added delicate cotton eyelet ruffle accent lace to sleeves and upper facings for an old-fashioned prairie appeal.
The main panels are done in a gorgeous, rare periwinkle blue / lilac rose vintage chenille fabric, and we incorporated the original very unique hemline of the original bedspread right into the robe. It is luxuriously soft and incredibly lightweight with very low, dense chenille tufting and exquisite roses.
Sizing is below – this was cut for a vintage size L, but in reality may better fit up to a M given that virtually all vintage sizes were much smaller than we’re accustomed to today. We’ve designed this to accommodate TALL sizes at a generous 57-58″ back length, so bear in mind this will likely *not* be a good fit if you’re a shorter gal (like me!).

All chenille garments we offer are true vintage/antique, and will have wear commensurate with age and usage in their previous life. Examples include natural color variations, a missing tuft or two, an old repair, etc.
All are 100% cotton or a cotton blend (which will generally feel softer). We do not buy or sell anything that we would not display in our own homes or wear.
❃vintage items are never perfect – but they display their imperfections perfectly!
