Rated 5 out of 5Â by BooRadley I can't wait to sleep in them!
I can't say enough good things about this stunning sheet set. I nabbed it while it was briefly on sale online, and it was an extravagance for me, but it's easily worth full price.
The pattern and color are well represented in the pictures online. The background is a lovely muted duck egg/seafoam green, and the 'nosegays' are plum, raspberry, orange and teal. The color combination works perfectly, and has the aesthetic of a vintage dress.
The fabric, described as 330 thread count Egyptian cotton sateen, is of an excellent quality; a very dense, close weave with a soft finish. It's heavy in weight and feels like quality cloth. The set comes with 2 pillowcases, and all arrived in a matching drawstring bag, which made me ridiculously excited. It's details like these that set Anthropologie apart from other retailers. I only wish Anthropologie sold sheets in full as well as single, queen and king. Why don 't they?? I really needed a full sheet (Aus "double"), but they're not available.
Beautiful sheets though - definitely one of my favourite Anthropologie purchases!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by grace26 Just found something awesome.
Initially I had the same reaction as one of the other reviewers -- the pillowcases are a little too small for my standard-sized pillows. BUT! I just found these awesome little tucking pockets that cover up the ends that were otherwise sticking out! No other pillowcase I've ever owned has these (I checked a few of mine just to be sure I wasn't missing anything huge about pillowcases) and I'm in love with them. Silly, but true.
The sheets were a little stiff after the first wash, but they've gotten softer again with time. They're a little brighter and more tropical than I thought they'd be -- in the picture it's more of a sea green/orange/deep pink palette, but the sheets are really more blue-green/dark orange/fuchsia -- but they're so cheerful that I have chosen to love them anyway.

Love, love, love! I'm an always looking for a beautiful set of sheets and Anthro never disappoints. Very soft. The background is a bit greener than the picture, more a light sea foam (my monitor may have made them look bluer than they actual are). I am very pleased, as always!
