Contemporary Heirlooms for Older Girls contains very sophisticated, yet very proper and modest tailored clothing patterns for the older girl. All patterns are sized 6-16 and include a skirt, a princess top; dress pants and shorts a jacket, a flared top and an a-line dress. All of the tops have several sleeve choices from sleeveless to long sleeves. You can have fun sewing heirloom in garments that your older girls will really love or just using plain fabric and not doing any heirloom sewing at all.
The book has 79 pages plus three huge pattern pull out tissue sheets in the back of the book. There are 8 pages of full color details in the center of the book. These clothes were featured on our new PBS TV series, Martha's Sewing Room. Although this was not written to be a child's sewing book, many of the patterns are certainly easy enough for your daughters and granddaughters to sew.
There are silk ribbon embroidery designs on denim -- how cool can you get with embroidery? Great rick rack techniques as well as lots of machine embroidery are found on some of the clothing.
