Hey Fossy, BUt if your looking for a material shop in cork, I went to La Modeliste in Bandon and they have a huge range of stuff and are fantastic to deal with! Good Luck

Hiya, I ordered the half yard swatch for matching up different things- the swatches are totally overpriced, but I think the half yard one is better value. I'd rather order it directly from Dessy & be sure of the right colour if it was me, even though it's quite expensive. Plus half a yard is actually quite a lot. HTH! :wv

Hi, I ordered the cravats already made from Dessy because it worked out cheaper than getting them made myself. Through the shop, the cravats cost me €20each for 3 which was €60. To order the material was €20 per yard & I would have needed 3 yards. And the dressmaker was charging me €18 each to make them. Which would have cost €114 :eek Have you checked with your dressmaker for cost before you order? AB

Dessy do the cravats for £18 or you buy a colour swatch for £10 so u can match up various things for your wedding. O-O
