Great pattern, easy sewing. Because it has a shirred elastic back, mine had an excellent fit. I used a $0.99 per yard muslin, and inexpensive scrapbooking fabric trim from Hobby Lobby and made this cute floor length dress.

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!
