.Lil in Liberty.

The night before we left for Queensland I was feeling organised and sat down to a spot of sewing. On the sewing machine was a adorable little top for Lil made from some of my Liberty of London fabric.
The latest Ottobre magazine had just arrived in the mail, and whilst it was a Winter issue, I was drawn the sweetest little camisole top pattern in it. The pattern is from Ottobre 6/2012 - #22. "Lumikello". I think the camisole is supposed to be worn underneath another top or lengthened to make a nightie but I really like the style and knew that it would be perfect for warmer weather, especially when made in some lightweight Liberty.
I love the fine detail of the front yoke with tiny pintucks. I was supposed to sew buttons down the middle, but didn't get around to it. I think it looks fine without but might add some one day.
Instead of a lace trim around the yoke and hem, I used a tiny pompom trim that I had in my stash, another cute detail.
After I had finished the top, I decided to include a little sleeve to cover her shoulders, so cut a semi-circle from fabric and hemmed the edges with more pompom trim. Isn't it adorable? It was a quick sew, although I didn't understand the instructions to sew in the yoke so I made it up and it worked fine.

Not everyone finds adapting to study easy after years of not pursuing formal education. Adults who have jobs and children may be overwhelmed by the time-investment they will have to make. Not everyone who takes the GED passes it on the first try. If someone seeking their GED fails on the first attempt, the important thing is that they not give up, but that they keep trying and working until their goals have been attained. Using the available tools to prepare for GED testing is the most important factor in success.
