With my 1st we went straight to undies one day at 19 months. It took her about 2 weeks to start telling us consistently when she needed to go, but she still had occasional accidents. She only wore a pull-up at night, not for outings, so we stayed home for the first 4 days until she somewhat had the hang of it. She finally started waking up dry at almost 3, so we're just now trying no pull-up for nighttime. With my 2nd she was asking to go potty by 16 months, she was dry often in the morning, and had a big sis to learn from, so we started a bit more gradually, having her sit after meals, before and after sleep, kind of as a ritual. A few minutes at a time. We just pulled down her diaper. We started having a lot of "hits" by 17 months and at 17.5 months her diaper was never wet enough to change, so we switched to underwear. She's in school, so it's been a slower process, but at 20 months now she's trained day & night.
