Pattern Description:

At a slightly cropped length, the Ava Ruched Ruffle Capri is cute on its own with a peasant top, or layered under a dress. The ruched strip down the side of the pants adds a boutique-quality detail that sets it apart from other ruffle pants.

These pants feature a comfortable fit while still being stylish. The waistline sits slightly below the navel -- no low-rise pants here!
