This valance is beautiful, just as depicted in the photos. I followed the recommendations of using 4 X the width of my window for this valance, and purchased two 100" valances for my 54" window. It fits perfectly, and is just what I wanted.
ProsThe rod pocket is actually 2 1/2", which allows you to use a flat Dauphine rod for the appearance shown in the photos. I had been looking for a 1 1/2" rod, and had found them to be quite expensive, so I was very pleased when I received it.
ConsThe product description should be updated to note the correct rod pocket width, so that customers do not purchase the wrong size rod.
