Heirloom sewing is defined as a collection of needlework techniques that imitates fine French hand sewing of the period 1890-1920.

Today, a sewing machine and manufactured trims are used to replicate this fine art. Delicate, and often sheer white cotton or linen fabrics are used with this refined skill.
