Wow, first just let me say I never write reviews, which I feel terrible about because I rely on them for every purchase! So thanks to all of you who do write them, I really, really appreciate all the information you provide me. Now, let me do someone out there the same kind deed re these curtains. I was just so pleasantly surprised by just how nice these curtains were! I wasn't quite sure what to expect after reading some reviews about how "sheer" they were, I don't know when I think of "sheer" I always think of your traditional "sheers" and think "ahh shoot, I don't want to just be able to see right through them." But, I so loved the pattern of these I took a chance, and I am so glad I did. Now don't get me wrong, they are very delicate, thin curtains, but I wouldn't say they were "sheer". On my living room window, in the middle of the day, I can make out shapes or the shadows of the shrubs and things in my yard, but I would feel completely comfortable walking right in front of that window without any clothes on, providing the curtains were closed! So while they don't really block out a lot of the light (which I prefer) they do give you that ever so slight amount of privacy. The background color is a soft white, or off white, it is not ivory or even cream colored, in my opinion. Also there are shades of a light blue and a soft mauve, but what surprised me was that what appears to be vines running all over, and to me appeared to be possible a dark brown are actually vine like branches and they are dark mauve, so dark that it looks brown until your up close and then it could almost pass for a light wine. The texture is crinkled and silky, with just a very slight sheen, but they are just truly beautiful. Just a real delicate and soft touch with a pattern that adds so much more than you'd think. A really nice quality fabric, and a lovely hang to them too. You won't be disappointed. However, because they are a little on the thinner side, I have them hanging behind my heavy dark chocolate drapes which are pulled open during the day, so I can still have light without completely exposing my entire HUGE front window. Just love em!
I neede just a little bit of color in my room. These worked perfectly. Not "grandma" looking like some flower prints can be. Just modern enough to work.

I was looking for a floral pattern that was a smaller, less bold design. I took a risk with the silk material and found that I liked them after hanging them. The floral is nice and the cruched silk gives them texture. I am pleased.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is definately a cream color and they are sheer
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? the panels are sheer, which was not what I expected. I liked them better after the hung for a day and I got used to the change of previous panels.
I read others reviews before I ordered and found them very accurate. These curtains are very pretty not old lady style but a more modern or contemporary feel. I would not say they are sheer , but the allow plenty of natural light through. I would feel comfortable standing in front of them and not think anyone outside could see me. they are very light weight. the description id accurate in size and I think they are much prettier than the picture. I did find a few that were sewn a little off but I ordered enough that I was able to match up the length as 2 were slightly longer than the others. For the price you can't beat these even if a few are slightly longer a quick hem or if you bought many your sure to find 2 that match. I even ordered more for another room.
The curtains are very soft and are very good quality. I am pleased with my purchase.
