In this paper, we establish 4- and 8-dissections for some infinite products. In particular, we generalize Hirschhorn's formulas for 8-dissections of a continued fraction of Gordon and its reciprocal. Our results also imply a theorem on the periodicity of signs of the coefficients of an infinite product given by Chan and Yesilyurt.
