These sheets are as pretty as they appear to be in the picture. The lace is lovely and the sheet size is generous. However, once they are washed, which I always to before using, the material is so wrinkled that it looks terrible. I am not one to iron if I can get away with it, but I wouldn't dare use them especially on a guest bed without pressing. The lace got curled up and the sheets themselves come out of the dryer looking like wrinkled tissue paper. I would have returned them (I bought two sets!) if I hadn't already washed. If you like to fold down the sheets and blankets on your bed so they can be seen, you won't be able to do so with these. If I find a way to upload photos when submitting this review, I will.
