Some good- but overall, cheesy
on September 30, 2013
These curtains have so much potential but the construction ruins the entire effect. They can either be hung through pockets on the back that create a pleated effect or through a rod pocket that creates a ruffle effect. Nice idea.
The bad news: They do not hang evenly at all. The bottoms of the curtains curl and the hems do not match. I haven't washed them, but I did follow directions, putting them in the dryer with a damp cloth. The results are very wrinkled curtains and the stitching tension is awful. Whoever assembled these used a sewing machine with bad tension because the stitches cause the sides to curl up. Also, there are spots where the blackout fabric shows- I have the beige curtains and some sort of black fabric is sticking out the seams. I suppose it is the blackout material. I may try to alter them, but the fabric is the type where previous stitching will show if I rip out the existing stitching. I wish I could return them but due to remodeling set backs, I had ordered these for use weeks ago in anticipation of the contractors being done in a reasonable time...another story, but not the fault of the curtains.
