This is a nice well made bed skirt , but looks nothing like the picture. It is not as gathered or sheer. The outer layer is a thin cotton behind it is a satin layer, it is very pretty once you get the many ,many wrinkles out . Try useing a wrinkle release spray it helps, the dryer alone with a wet fabrics sheet did little good.I thought it would be more like a sheer curtain but it is not. It is very long .
