ArtLady, yes, this is will fit a toddler. This is a size 2 year and is supposed to be 26" in the chest I think. Seems a bit large for a 2 year old. My granddaughter will be 3 in Oct. and I made it for her. She is a tiny thing though and her brother who was 1 in May is only 1" smaller in both chest size and arm length. I think mine turned out just a tad wider as well. I think my gauge was good but somehow adding knitted on bands seems to make my things turn out bigger. I believe the patterns came in sizes both smaller and larger than this one.
