shae16:  Leaving off the back ruffle was actually an idea I saw in this forum a while ago, and it just sounded more sensible and comfortable to lean back on. Post pics here when you finish yours!

Thanks!  Cdonley...in answer to your question:

Well...it's hard to say. I started the front of the body, went to Paris on vacay for a week (I know, rough life, ha ha) and when I returned I lost my motivation to knit all together...so I didn't pick it up again until about 2 weeks later...but then it really took maybe a week of doing a little every day.  The ruffle went very quickly, as did the 3-needle join that was brand new to me.  My biggest gripe: Bernat Cotton Tots yarn!  UGH, what a PITA.

Thanks!

I am going to give it to my niece tomorrow, so will have her try it on and check the measurements for her size (she was a 19" chest around).

Thanks for the kudos! I am attempting another one this weekend, as soon as my friend gives me the measurements of her 2 yr. old.  Different colors (strawberry body and lighter pink variegated ruffle)...will post pics when that one's done as well.  Am going to attempt on circs!

HELP!  I want to make these for a friend who has a street shoe size 9 foot. The largest crochet hook I own is a K...can anyone help me modify the pattern so I can make these ASAP?  Thanks in advance!

Well...this is my first wearable FO (other than scarves and legwarmers)!  I am so excited and feel pretty good about how it turned out. I've only been knitting since January so this was a big undertaking for me...but my 20-month old niece was worth it!  Smiley  I modified the size to one smaller then the smallest size given on the pattern.  The pattern is Knitty's MONICA: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTmonica.html.  I also took the advice of someone else who posted here a while ago, and left off the back ruffle...I think it looks cuter.  I did a mattress seaming for the sides, but next time I am DEFINITELY going to do this on circs so as to avoid seaming!  I also modified the strap instructions and just bound off the whole top edge, crocheted the straps separately, and then attached them.  ALSO, I added a crocheted ruffle edging to the bottom since it didn't look long enough and I didn't want my niece to be exposing her belly at such a young age.  

Anyway, here is a pic of the front:



...and the back
