    I make jingle dresss for my niece and I use a lot of applique(ribbon work). I also like to use a lot of jingles on the skirt due to more jingles, a more beatuiful sound the dress makes. I like to make the dress 2 pc. so some of the weight will get off of her shoulders. I like dresses with a lot of design and colors that accent each other!!:p

      I also use applique. I like to use a lot of bright colors too. I also use sequin material.
