The denim is a light to medium weight. The stitching is good and it lays well. The only reason I didn't give skirt 5 stars is because I would have preferred a heavier weight denim. But for this price or even close - I have been unable to find a denim bedskirt. When I priced the denim at the fabric store, It would have cost me double this price just for the fabric plus I'd have to make it myself!
