Default pillowcase dress measurements

I am making pillowcase dresses and I am trying to figure out good measurements. I have found several sites for the length, but I need to find measurements for the width also. Please help!

I actually took a "made by mommy" class because I could never find a good tut online. It was awsome! The only problem is that she gave good measurements for length, but she uses the width of the fabric 45" for all of the dresses and I think it is too wide for the smaller ones.

She gives measurements for every size. My daughter wears a 7/8 but my husband likes her dresses very long, so I use exactly one yard which gives me a 33" dress. When I'm sewing for a larger child, I like to have measurements since they vary so much. HTH
