I've just opened the package and ... I am happy - beautiful, delicate color, the right size (I had doubts because of some bad experience in the past, not on Overstock) and what looks like good quality (this aspect will be checked by using). It is soft and pleasant. Thank you. Now, my acquiring part want's more and more. I have to think about it.
I bought these for my master bedroom & when I took them out of the package I thought they were a brighter blue than what was pictured. I did think the fabric was nice & when I put them on they looked great. I was very happy...then I washed them. All the finish came off the fabric after I washed them. They were so wrinkled, that even after ironing them, they were still wrinkled. They looked nothing like when I first took them out of the package. I was very disappointed & would not recommend these shams.
The major con: lack of zipper or buttons - you can use these shams for display only and they are quite ugly for display as a matter of fact. If you try to sleep on them - your head lands in the deep pocket as both sides of the pillow move to the sides. Who designed this strange thing? The cotton is soft and pleasant to touch - this product would be indeed very useful if equipped with 2-3 buttons or a zipper.
These fit euro-sized pillows perfectly, and you won't have loose or too tight of a fit anywhere on the pillow. I use these to actually sleep on! The color isn't what I expected; it's more of a very light blue and not a silver/grey like the picture. I bought the making duvet cover, but have not put it on yet. I like the stripes on it and it gleans ever-so-slightly.
These are soft, smooth, cool, and a perfect fit for my euro pillows. I ordered the Laura Ashley Emilie set of bedding, but couldn't find any shams to match so I could add my euro pillows to the bed. These work just right, picking up the pale blue in the floral pattern.
