I am in the process of making Simplicity 2724.  Love this pattern, and hope it turns out as well as the picture I have in my head.

I plan on making the view with the slim skirt (in black), and the top with the short sleeves and the stand collar.  I am trying to decide if the ruffle is too much with the fabric I have chosen for the top part.  I have asked my husband, but I'm not sure I trust his opinion since he's not really what you would call a clothes person.  Plus, we have a little bet going now on what the general public at large's opinion will be.  Loser buys dinner this weekend.

So, to ruffle or not to ruffle?

Personally, I'm leaning toward the ruffle!

i personally think the ruffle would be stupendous. but if you are unsure, maybe just halfway on the ruffle? like just to where the neckline comes together and then stop? then you have the joy of a ruffle, but not overly ruffle.

I think it would look okay, either way, but the ruffle does add some gorgeous texture to that print.  I vote ruffle!
