On the website this product looks really nice- fashionable and well crafted. What you get when you actually open the bag up is another thing-- very shoddy material and craftsmanship. I probably sewed seams together better in my home ec class in junior high. Would not recommend to anyone; I'd like a refund but it's rather difficult for me to return something like this- unfortunately I wasted about ** bucks.
Not only is this set a very dull blue in person, but there were prominent stitching flaws and dirt marks here and there on the comforter and pillows. Sadly, the washing instructions on the tags are incorrect as well. Using a low heat setting on the dryer wasn't enough to keep the shams from wrinkling up into wads of fabric held together by the melted glue that backed the appliqués. The bedskirt center also tore in the dryer. I'm really bummed about it. Delivery was quick- that was great. I don't know if I'll order from here again though. Probably not.
I love this set because it is the perfect shade/tone for my decor. In person the blue is just a bit more 'aqua' than 'cornflower' which is exactly what I needed. My only quibble with the quality is that there are a lot of loose threads. I worry how well the embroidery will hold up over time. The texture of the fabric is somewhat 'suede like' rather than satin finish. The design is striking and elegant. Very pleased with it now - hope it holds up to wear and tear.
Very poor quality. I didn't even take it out of the packing box. You could see right away the spread would bunch/lump up after a while and the flowers were really "out there" and a bit too much. I returned the set using Overstocks return label and they only refunded me about 1/2 my purchase price and kept the rest as "fees" very disappointed with the item and OS returns. I've been a an 'O' Club member for many years and only returned 2 maybe 3 item before....
I ordered this set thinking that the red was red but it is pretty burgundy looking in color. The red sheets that I ordered to go with it are red and don't match at all. It is hard to discern colors when you are looking at the picture of the item to be ordered. I like the flower pattern and hope to enjoy it later in the year.
The color did not match the online image or even the picture included with the product. Since I was trying to closely match drapes I already had (a match according to the picture) I will not order another choice since the color images cannot be trusted. Since my review is based solely on my disappointment in the color, I cannot rate the quality of the product.
I purchased this in the black & white color scheme. It is very pretty and I am very pleased with the purchase. It is a very warm comforter. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated this winter but for now during the summer here in South Carolina, it's a little too warm. After 2 washings on gentle cycle, I have noticed one three inch section that the seam has come unsewn. It can be hand sewn back together with no problem. For the price I paid for this set, I'm not too upset about this issue. I like this set so much that I'm considering purchasing another set to have as a back up for when this one gets worn out.
Hubby and i fell in love with this set also. wehn we opened the package and saw that it was the "wrong" shade of blue (more of a teal) we were upset. If it had matched the blackout drapes that we just purchased, we would have kept both sets . we also had purchased the Madison Park Farrah 7 pc set. guess we will have to buy the sets in person with the tie backs from the drapes to ensure a correct color match. Other than that we are usually pleased with all of our purchases from the O.
