I find bed skirts to be an annoying necessity. They always seem overpriced for what you get - this one is a little better than average in that regard. I like that it has a lining and the base that goes under the mattress was fairly well made. It fits well. The fabric is not exactly what I expected - it's gauze-like cotton - and took a long time to iron. It pressed out nicely though and hangs well. The color is a yellowish ivory but I'm pairing it with a gold quilt so it will coordinate. I also tried it with a taupe comforter and it clashes. I need another bed skirt in white (this one also comes in white) but I'll probably shop around first to see if I can find something at a better price.
