  • jingle dress patterns

    Hello everyone!

    I am planning on getting a new jingle dress made and need a really good pattern. The Missouri River pattern is ok, but I would like one that looks more up-to-date. Could you give me some ideas.

    I usually just use a fitted or button-up shirt and take a pattern off of it. The sleeves and collar are the only tricky parts. Then decide if you want a straight cut or an "A" line dress.

    And of course, if you want a one piece dress, a shorter one piece dress with an underskirt, a long top with a skirt that shows more, an apron style with an underdress, a dress with a cape, a dress with a flap so you can flip your jingles up and don't sit on them, etc....

    Good luck! is what it is...

      Flaps or One Piece?

      Thank you, Wyoming Rose, for your suggestions.

      Now the question is: which is most popular right now....flaps or a one piece?

      Everybody, what's your opinion?

      Thanks for your help.
