I am very happy with this purchase. It is the perfect amount of feminine ruching without being too little girlish. The fabric is a soft cotton feel and does not have a sateen finish, just like the info suggestions, but I saw some reviewers who said they expected it to be shiny. It shouldn't be and it isn't. It is a purple, but it isn't a warm tones. I feel it takes on cooler tones, and in some lights almost shows undertones of blue. Great product, great price and feels great too! I would purchase this over and over for my room!
