Stitches are too far apart using the size 9s for the 1x1 border. I am going to make another swatch in 1x1 rib and use smaller needles. Figure out how many stitches I need to equal 19 inches, cast on, knit the border (not sure how big I am going to make it yet) and then decrease the stitches to get them back down to 96 for the body.
I took some measurements of a newborn size jacket my friend (Bethany's SIL) has for her baby girl. Although, it is newborn, she says her daughter still swims in it, so I figured I could add a 1/2-1 inches to those measurements. I took bottom to armpit measurements and sleeve measurements. Hopefully these will work out.
