In fact, you may wnt to think twice about the ruffle placement, depending on your size. I cant help but visulize that ruffle being exactly at my bust and sticking out funny, not nearly as attractive as it looks on a baby.
Exactly what I was thinking. There are many plain sweater patterns that can be made to look very similar...but I'd rethink the ruffle.
