Confused by the gauge - i needed #10 needles to get 22 stitches to 4 inches, and the dress was way too big. Is the correct gauge 22 stitches for 4 inches?

I use 32" needles and "magic loop" method. Another option is to use double-pointed needles.

I did find 8" length circular needles in a local yarn shop but since it was a high end shop they wanted $18.95 for the needles and I probably won't use them again. Tried double point, didn't work well. I'd like to make this dress, but can't figure out how - I could try to just follow the directions but not knit in the rounds. ??
Thanks! What's the magic loop method?

The best advice, in terms of magic loop, is to search it on you tube. That way you will get a first hand demo of it. The method is quite ingenious and fairly easy.

What size doll will this fit

I tried doing this on circular needles - I used a 16" length which is the shortest one you can buy in circular needles, but casting on 66 I can't join to even start the first row. Any further instructions or help?

This is the sweetest little dress. Now I wish you would make a child sized one. Not necessarily so that a girl can match her doll, but because it looks so comfortable. If it looks comfortable on a doll I imagine it could be a very comfortable dress.............and little girls like to match their dolls! Great job!
