My 21 month old is a stripper. We're actually quite lucky that it has yet to occur in a public place. She thinks it's quite funny to take off her pants (and her diaper) and run around saying "naked girl". My 5 year old thinks it's pretty funny too, which of course just encourages her. One day I found poop on the floor after her nap/"quiet" time. Another time I went in to put a blanket on her before I went to sleep and found her asleep with only a shirt on, in a very wet bed.
I've heard that putting the diaper on backwards can make it harder for them to take it off, but our little girl is a Houdini and doesn't even undo the straps - she just wiggles out of it somehow. Footie jammies are out as she just unzips them. I have found that if I put her in a onesie, she's less likely to strip down. The pants come off, but at least the diaper and shirt stay on. If only they made more onesies in size 2T instead of assuming all children who fit into size 2T are potty training and need to not have snaps on their shirts.
I know this is a phase she's going through (at least I certainly hope it is), but let's hope she doesn't prance into the kitchen or front room naked while I have a client here during tax season!
