Three Things; Works in Progress – Sue Barnes’ Fisherman’s Coat
An update today on a previous work in progress, Sue’s Fisherman’s coat. We had some lovely comments here and on social media last time so we thought you might like to see the finished product.
Sue made the coat to fit Kris and here he is on Thurstaston beach outside Shore Cottage Studio modelling it earlier this evening.
A close up of a sleeve. Sue has worked traditional Gansey patterns into the calico using both rust marks and hand embroidery. The patterns appear as if sea worn, faded and washed away.
The latest addition to the coat is a shoal of fish worked in herringbone stitch in a subtle pearlised thread around the hem.
You can see Sue’s coat hung in our studio on the brand new 360 degree tour of our studio!
Why not book onto one of Sue’s Explore Design Stitch courses and change your perspective on textiles and stitch?
