Friends Help Please

Friends I need help please.


I received this email today


"My bosses mother is losing a battle with leukemia, and to make things worse the hospital has lost her favorite robe. She is wondering if maybe you can help.


Looking for a women's Seer Sucker robe. The color pattern alternates pink, white, blue, white, pink, etc… It had faux buttons that were actually snaps. She has no clue where or even when she got it. Can you help?"


Anyone?


A thousand thanks


Toad

Toad! I'm looking. I found this one, but certainly not identical with no snaps, but pretty!

I found this on Vermont Country Store. Seeresucker with snaps. Here's the link:

Probably a "housecoat" if it has snaps up the front. I'll be back with more, but will leave you with this for starters: http://www.togshop.com/jump.jsp?itemID=4134&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C21%2C4%2C117&iProductID=4134&sale=1&onsale=1

Thank you everyone for your help. The links have sent "Mom" in the right direction, and I believe that an acceptable substitute has been found.

It's great to know that there are such caring people still left in the world.

Just cruised Kmart online, I see 4 or 5 snap-front models of "duster" in various seersucker colors and stripes, with a contrast yoke at the top. Might be a promising venue, depending on where she lives. If Fall has begun blasting her area w/ cooler temps, then the seersucker dusters will quickly be replaced with flannels.

Many thanks to each and every one of you. I was out of my league and knew that you would know.
