I was excited to receive the bed skirt. Much to my dismay, the bed skirt was more of a off white or light ivory. It was not a bright white as it appears on the screen. The part that lays across the box spring was white, which made the bed skirt appear even more off white. The ruffling is made of cotton knit. It appeared on screen to look more of a different fabric, something close to the decorative scrolling on the European shams. It was cute, but needed to return it since it would not work.
