The quality of this daybed set is excellent. The cover is sturdy and well made. Yes, it's a little skimpy at the sides, but that adds to it's casual, relaxed charm. The bed skirt was quite crinkled when I unpacked it, but I ironed it with a little steam and it came out smooth and is holding it's shape very nicely. I did the same for the plaid, ruffled sham. I agree with other reviewers that the color is a little muted and somewhat dingy. But the set is still lovely and really, for the price, it's a bargain. I use it in my guest room and it looks cozy, welcoming and special. The shams are quite roomey, so I got new, puffy pillows (which I needed anyway).
