This bed set is very cute, but does not hold up to washing. My daughter got this set for Christmas and I am already looking to replace it (it is June). It is fading quicker than I expected and has that "washed" look to it. I have not over washed it, just a few times. I am being careful with the sheets, using others in between washes to save them. I have had so much luck with everything I have purchased at overstock, I was very surprised at the quality.
