The pattern is lovely, the stitching fine, the sheets are cut accurately - no twist against the warp BUT the quality of the fabric is terrible. You can see through the weave - it must be about 45 threads per inch instead of 100. There is little brushed loft for the flannel-y part. Foolishly I thought that washing them would plump up everything. It hasn't. If they pill I will try to return them even though used. I've had them on the bed 5 days. Why make a well constructed product out of inferior materials? This is my first overstock disappointment :(
The fitted sheet corner stitching began to fail after the first washing. The serging did not evenly capture both seam allowances nor was the stitch line tied off or back stitched to prevent the stitches from coming undone. The sheet corners failure was also due to the loose weave of the flannel allowing barely caught seam edges to pull away from the stitches then unravel. This left one corner mostly frayed free from the stitches and one corner beginning to have the stitches themselves unravel. The flannel fabric is soft and the printed pattern is the same as in the add.
I bought one set of these sheets in the blue stripe and loved them so much that I bought a second striped set and two more in the "Corsage" pattern. They are fantastic! Heavy weight, and they wash up to the softness of a warm hug :) May not be QUITE the quality of, *** flannels, but, especially at the price, they aren't far below it. One set of my queen-size sets arrived with a queen flat sheet but a full-sized fitted sheet. Overstock was great about sending out a new set and arranging for the return of the mis-matched set. I highly recommend these sheets to anyone who has weather that might be chilly at night. In fact, I like these sheets so much, I'll probably use the top sheet as a light blanket for the summer!
These are very soft flannel sheets. The pilllowcases are almost large enough for a queen size pillow. That is my biggest complaint about queen size sheet sets: the pillowcases are rarely large enough for a queen size pillow and it hangs out the end of the case. These cases are aqequate, but could be longer. The sheets are of an ample size for my 15" mattress, but probably wouldn't fit a much deeper mattress.
