I absolutely loved the velvet panels because of the expensive look and the lengths. But, I had to accept the reality that perhaps they were flawed in various ways due to the drastic reduction in price. Example: the lengths on some was not what they should have been so we ended up adjusting our rod installation. One was sewn incorrectly and there was a spot on a couple. I have ordered and reordered a total of 6 sets of panels until I got close enough. I can still say that I would rather have them than not.
