I was looking for sheer curtains that would let in light but would not allow passers-by to see in (during the daytime). This is exactly the sheerness for that. I checked by looking in from the street. I have them under EFF faux silk curtains that I close at night. The "gardenia" color is very light ivory/off-white, which is what I was looking for, and the price is excellent for the quality. I needed 4 panels for my window. The only negative is that I had to return and reorder a couple of the panels because there were slights "defects" in the linen texture (slubbing) that would have been very visible since they were in the middle of the panel. If they had been at the top or the bottom then I wouldn't have cared. But the texture does look like real linen. And Overstock customer service was great about handling the returns.
