Ava Blouse, Peter & the Wolf Pants

This week I finished the Ava blouse from

To go with the Peter and the Wolf Pants from These are my first pair of jeans! I am happy about that and I love the stretch denim!

The detail on this pattern is great. Side pockets and a cute finish at the end of the pant leg.
I am not crazy about the way the front waist band goes straight across my belly especially when I sit down. It's just not comfortable.  

 I took a lot off each pant leg to slim them down and made a few other changes. They still don't fit me right but I'm not going to keep changing them until I am ready to try some radical changes to the front waistline.
 This is also my first try at the Ava Blouse. I love this pattern. I only had to take off about an inch at the top of the side seams.  
The details are wonderful! I love the pleats above the bust and as sleeves! The top bust is so great the way it can be a sheer fabric while the low bust can be non-see-through. The white I used is a little more sheer than you can see in the pictures. 

The pleats in the back ate very nice as well! I Love the Ava Blouse:

Still need work on the pants but the pattern has a lot of potential.
May the Angels in their beauty bless you.
May they turn toward you streams of blessing.

May the angels of awakening stir your heart
To come alive to the eternal within you, 
To all the invitations that quietly surround you.
