The quilt and the bedskirt arrived and I was disappointed. The color is not as bright a red as in the photos and is a bit drab. The bedskirt is very thin and not of good quality. I am keeping them though as this is for a guest bedroom that is not used very often. I buy a lot from 'Overstock" and I am usually very happy.
The black and white check Lorraine bedskirt is so sheer that I thought it would rip taking it out of the package. The good thing is a bedskirt doesn't' usually have light running through it, so perhaps it will work if I can safely get it under the mattress without ripping it. Price was low, so I guess you get what you pay for. The fabric is almost paper-like.
This is a good value and nice looking. I like the gathered look and the weight is good. It ironed out easily after shipping. One review mentioned that the check is "printed" (not woven) onto the fabric, but it's nicely done and since bedskirts are seldom washed and dried, I don't see this as a problem. The black and white check is small, so almost gives the appearance of "gray" from a distance, and actually is very neutral and goes with many of my quilts. Depending on the quilt, it can have a country look or a more modern look. I'm pleased with this purchase, especially for this price!
I bought a red quilt comforter and needed a bedskirt. I didn't want solid red so when I saw this black & white Lorraine bedskirt, I decided to try it. I've added black & white shams & pillows and it looks great. The bedskirt really sets it off and looks great with the red. Very good quality, fits nicely.
I loved this so much I am going to order one for my best friend for her birthday. I have a taller bed so the dust ruffle is a little short but that is my beds problem not the set. I looks just like the photo and really changed the look of my room to casual but elegant. My husband really liked it too and normally doesn't notice a new bedspread. Well worth the money and arrived quickly.
The red background on the quilt is actually more of an antique red--it's neither bright red nor maroon. The quality of this quilt is quite lovely! It really reminds me of the old-timey quilts, which was the look I was going for. I only have 2 complaints regarding this set: 1) The quilt is rather lightweight, so I put a blanket on the bed under the quilt (So, problem solved!), and 2) They don't sell coordinating curtains! (And I wanted the flowered pattern in curtains--not the check) Other than THAT, LOVE it!
