My DD started putting forth a good effort around the time that she was two. She was very independent and would insist on doing it by herself.
My DS is 2 and 5 mos and is just beginning to assert his independence and try it himself. Moreso than getting dressed, he wants to undress. DD was the opposite and wanted to dress herself before she attempted to learn to undress herself.
I'm just looking for an average age range and of the child attempted to dress or undress him/herself first.
DS made 2 in July. I was doing my hair yesterday and for the first time DS came in and said I ready!! I had to laugh he had on his bathing suit shorts in backward and a grey baseball shirt with his boots. But hey... He tried!! Lol
My son was about 3 when he could fully dress himself from head to toe. My daughter was 2 and could do everything except pull the shirt over her big ol' head. My 2nd daughter that is NOW 2 years 4 months, is stubborn, and tries to do everything herself, but her clothes end up backwards, and inside out. But the effort is there.

Age 3.5. Maybe she could have done it sooner if I encouraged it/let her. She has a bit of trouble with the socks, though.
