ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE CURTAINS
Subject says it all. When I opened the packages to iron for hanging, my first thought was oh my, I am going to have to add a lining. Well I hung them without and BOY WAS I SURPRISED. From the inside you can see outside but from the outside YOU CAN NOT SEE IN. I have yet to open the drapes as I can see out. With our 80 degree weather they keep the kitchen cool. I ordered 2 valances for each 48" wide window and they are perfect. A third valance would not hang the same as the curtain nor could you see out at the top giving it a darker look than the curtain.
ProsYou can see through them on the inside but not from the outside in.
