I crocheted this in a day and a half, it went really quickly, it's the Baby It's Cold Outside pattern from Crochetme (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_baby_sweater.html).  I used Patons Divine in rose for the body of the sweater, I don't usually use synthetics but I had some laying around, but the trim is what I'm really proud of, I had a 8 x 72 inch strip of Dupioni silk leftover from a curtain I had cut up for a difference project, and I cut that into strips a little less than a quarter inch wide, wound it into a ball, and used it for the trim.  The white yarn of the flowers was a little bit of yarn from my stash that I long since lost the info for, so I don't know what that was.  Anyway, here it is:

Thanks for the compliments.  It's the first baby item I've ever made, I always figured why waste my time making something that may only be worn once, if that, before it's outgrown.  But it went so fast, being so small, I can see now why people like to knit and crochet baby items.  You get such a sense of accomplishment, a whole finished object, in a fairly short amount of time.
