Very lovely crochet, excellant quality! But of the 15 inch drop, only 7-1/2" is crocheted. The remaining 7-1/2 inches are the cotton/poly that the top is made from. Just for you information!
I got two standard shams in ivory and one in white to go in guest bedrooms with the coordination ivory print and blue/white print bedspreads in each room. I was so pleased with them, I use one of the ivory shams in our master bedroom. Ordered the matching ivory and the white bedskirts (dustruffles). The queen size I needed for one quest room was almost too small, as it did not fall as low to the floor as I needed. However, the bed in that room is an antique replica rice poster bed and is high off the floor. The white bedskirt in a twin size fit the twin bed guest room just fine. I cannot say enough good things about this line of bedding accessories - particularly at the prices! The shams are probably the very best deal you'd find anywhere on a completely crocheted front bedsham. It even closes with a nice hidden zipper instead of the usual cheap "envelope" closure. Way to go, Paragon!!! Thanks.
