I ordered the VCNY Carmen window valance in white. it is exactly as pictured. I love it. took longer to get it than I thought it should, but it was December and it came from Canada. I wasn't in a big hurry so the time didn't matter much to me. when I opened it, it was wrinkled and I wasn't sure about ironing it with all the pleats. so I ran it through the wash and dried it in dryer. came out perfect. no ironing needed. it looks really nice and the price was really low. that's a plus.
I ordered two to fit my window that is 60 inches wide. The fabric is quality, the floral pattern is beautiful. They are lined with a plain linen colored material. The pleated ruffled is sage green and cranberry checked, in which compliments the floral pattern perfectly. From far away the ruffle looks brown checked. The valance required no ironing as they were packaged neatly and the weight of the material corrected any folds. I have two valances spanning 5 feet on a standard white rod without any sagging or need for a support bracket. The material allows you to shape the valance in any shape you want. I spread out the valance more in the middle of the two valances and pleated the corners. It looks like I have two cornices side by side. The picture shows the valance a little more vivid than they actually are, the colors are still beautiful but a little more muted than shown. They look absolutely stunning. Beautiful to look at. Very satisfied with my purchase.
Fabric not a thick as I thought it would be. The top of the valance above the rod flops forward. It doesn't stand up like a gathered valance. I might try to starch it or put a piece of cardboard.
