by Glassie These drapes are outstanding!
After 15 years, I felt it was time to replace my custom drapes and wanted to see if I could find some premade ones. I looked all over and tried some pre-made ones from another store but they did not look nice. JC Penny's is really the only store now that sells a great selection of the pinch pleat drapes and I ordered the ivory beige color. I was really surprised at the high quality and I don't think I could have had better custom drapes made. These drapes have a sheen to them but are not the taffeta type ones that will snag easily, especially if you have a pet. The drapes have a real fullness to them and actually have 2 linings...a white back lining and a thick cotton type center (see photo). The photo shows how they do let light in a sunny day but they are far from sheer so no worries there. If I ever win the Powerball lottery, I plan to have these same drapes in my future apartment in Paris!

Rated 4 out of 5 by moogoogaipan Drapes look nice
I had to purchase the 84 in. long drapes because I needed 70 in. long to fit my windows, but I was unable to find anyone who is selling that size. So I had to have them shortened, which added quite a bit to the cost. Since my only other option was to order custom-made drapes at a much, much higher price, we opted to order these and pay for the alteration. Once it was done, however, the drapes look great. The fabric has a beautiful sheen and the color, fawn, is perfect. I knew the drapes were lined, but I didn't know that there is also a middle (thermal) layer as well, for added value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gma28 Nice fabric with a silky sheen
I am happy with the purchase of these panels now that they're hung. They hang with a bit of a "flounce" to them. The silky fabric reflects the light well, and looks rich. The multiple layers provide sufficient insulation. I would recommend them provided you have no aversion to ironing. I bought two patio panels, and a matching pair of drapes. They were packed in plastic bags, then into a box and when opened, looked as though they'd been slept on by an elephant. I spent a total of 8 hours ironing their three layers. So if you don't mind ironing, they're a good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog53 excellent product
It is hard to know exactly what you are getting when you order online and even though JCP has a great return policy I don't like going thru that hassle. I ordered pleated drapes that were to be room darkening, the size that I ordered was also none standard and were to fit on my existing traverse rods. When my order arrived I was very pleased that not only did this product work as advertised, but that the color that I chose was even better than the color shown in the catalog. For over 40 years I have shopped JCP and I have yet to be disappointed with there merchandise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WookieOne Good price for wonderful product!
Purchased on sale, I bought the pinch-pleated drapes for my dining area which will hang next to pinch-pleated semi sheer curtains which I purchased from JCP 7 years ago when we completed building the house. I was a little concerned having the two different materials so close together on the same wall, but they turned out beautifully. I then bought some nickel leaf pattern tie backs for the light blue curtains and the same style in black for the ivory drapes. I couldn't be happier with all of it.. and all of it came from JCP.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beanier Good quality
These drapes are a very good quality,they look nice when they are hung.There is a big problem with wrinkles,really bad,but I read instructions on jcpenny website.It said to run them in dryer cool setting with a damp towel.I decided to try this rather than return them.I had to run them at least 3 times,and they were still wrinkled.I hung them about a month ago,some more of the wrinkles have disappeared,but some still there.I will keep them because of the color and quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jxxxp Beware - Measurement smaller than stated on website
I ordered the panel pair measuring 150" wide. When I opened the package and attempted to hang the panels, they did not fully cover the window. I measured both panels to find out that they were only a total of 145" wide. Since I could not use these drapes, I had to drive several miles to my nearest JCP store in order to return them. Not a very happy customer. If exact size is not as critical for your situation, these drapes might be something to consider since pinch pleat in this size are hard to find.
