I received these curtains within a day of ordering, so the service was extraordinarily fast. First of all, they are lovely; the swiss dots make this "stagecoach" curtain look a bit feminine. The material is soft and translucent, but not transparent. It lets in plenty of light (if that's what you want) while obscuring sight to or from the outside. They really make a room look finished. When they are tied up, they look fantastic. I didn't even iron them (the wrinkles "fell out" within a week), but you may want to for a crisper appearance.
For the price, these are remarkable curtains.
ProsLets in light, but not sight.
ConsYou may want a heavier curtain that blocks light completely.
