      i use 365 and divide it by the number of rows and that tells me how many jingles per row

        I was told long ago that you should have 365 cones no more no less and that there should be 7 rows. My last dress I have 300 cones and I think 6 rows. LOL If I put anymore cones on there it would look crowded. I guess nowadays it's up to you how much you want and what you think looks good.

            My uncle told me that I should have 366 cones. 365 for the days in the year, and 1 for myself.

              How long will it take?
              by Vicki
              We're gonna be starting our new dresses this month and I was just wondering how long it will take to sew up a dress thats not gonna have any applique on it? Its gonna be plain. We're gonna have short sleeve jackets over the dress thats already have designs on it.

              Replacing Rusty Cones
              by MsLakotaize
              I had to replace about 100 rusty cones on an older Jingle Dress that was gifted to me. The new cones I have to replace them are a lot more shiny than the rest of the cones on the dress. I think it looks kinda silly, two rows of very shiny cones and the rest dull orginial coppenhagen lids. Is there...
