This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit a wide range of 18" and some 15" dolls. The elastic back can be made wider or more narrow to fit the many different sizes.

I MADE IT A SATIN GOWN WITH JEWELS IT CAME OUT BEAUTIFUL. IT WAS A GREAT BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR MY GRAND NIECE..
I enjoyed using this pattern in a variety of fabrics and lengths. It does fit a variety of dolls as given, but I did a few minor tweaks to get a little better fit on a few of my alternate brand 18"-ish dolls like the Gotz 50cm girls. Happy to recommend this pattern!
