Three Things; Work in Progress – Sue Barnes’ Castaway

Sue Barnes Castaway project

Work in Progress today is a revisit to Sue’s Castaway project. Sue has been busy hand dyeing fabrics with rust and mud and hand stitching miniature couture outfits for the vintage dolls.

The dolls form part of a larger project which will include some life size clothes together with stitched sketches.
