From the front flap of this 352 page book: "For centuries, hope chests have been kept by young women and filled with treasured items they will need once they are married. Lingerie, linens, and jewelry, are just a few of the things a girl might collect. Heirloom sewing enthusiast Martha Pullen has taken the concept of the hope chest one step further.

Many of the patterns and instructions included in this book call for French sewing, so Martha Pullen shares her vast knowledge in this art. Martha has pulled from her personal collection of antique baby clothing to give this book the ultimate heirloom flavor. The specifics of each dress, boy suit, and gown are described extensively for those of you who wish to reproduce them. Much of the antique detail has been adapted to t...

Modern heirloom seems like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t. An heirloom is something that is passed on from generation to generation. That has nothing to do with color. In fact, Madeira appliqué was always sewn in bright colors - it still is on the island of Madeira where the technique was created and is still taught today. In modern heirloom, color and pattern are added to the age-old techniques. These techniques are still being used in ready-to-wear, even now. They will still be around in 100 years. Some will be more popular than others in different decades, but they have real staying power. This book covers techniques for manipulating fabric, changing ready-to-wear and sewing modern garments and home decor using heirloom techniques.
