needed something pretty at the windows and to keep out the cool air
I ordered two colors like shown in the catalog. The blue had a top ruffle (hem) of 2 3/4 inches while the wheat had a top ruffle of 1 7/8 inches. The top could be covered with a valance, but the bottom really looks awful with two different lengths. They never show the bottom in the catalog. I consider this a quality control problem. These curtains are definitely not worth the cost.
These drapes/valances are not as well put together as I would hope, especially for the price. The lining had to be ironed back on a few and the stitching could be better. I am very pleased with the quality of the material. Overall, they look very nice.
A little more wrinkled that I would have liked and I wish they would have come in a longer length.
I paired these curtains with the great valance and they dressed my room in elegance. We bought the fitted bedspread in a matching color and my room is just lovely. My relatives raved about the quality and appearance of these drapery and bed coverings.
