        My mom makes my dresses! I'm lucky! She can make my dresses in about 3 to 4 days but then again she's magic so she can do them overnight or 2 days!

          Wow... overnight!!.. Talented... I've been trying to start mine since forever. I'm just not sure where to start.. and I keep changing my designs... now I'm wondering if I'll have enough jingles.

          I'll get it done.. soon I hope..

            My mom makes all my dresses. if she's really in the sewing mood, she can get it all done in about a day and half to two days. some take longer, but its all good because i love all my dresses. i usually put the jingles, its my one job in making my dresses! :)

              I make my own and if I work on it consistently I can get it done in 3-4 days...but when I got school and work take me bout a week...my next one will probably take a little longer because I want to take my time on it!

                      My mom makes mine too but she hates sewing!!! So I have to convince her to make them. She is amazing and sews them in a day or two. Usually I try to come up with the designs for applique, then she comes up with better ones! I am not very talented as far as color combos or sewing let alone applique. What would I do without my mom? I would have to dance naked or something and then there would be a thread about EAP7's Unfit Invisible Jingle Dress. That's one way to get the judges attention....

                              What types of materials do you guys use in making your dresses. My mom usually makes mine but I want to start making them, I do all of my own beadwork and on my moccasins and jewelry but I am sorta lost on how to start making a dress. If anyone has any tips or sites that would be really helpful.
                              Thanks
