Miss Sugar & Mr Barley
Are a summer version of Princess Xenia & Alfonzo, being inspirited by a traditional British summer time refreshment…Barley Sugar.
The colour pallet used reflects sugar colours such as: sugar pink, vanilla sugar & granulated sugar, the green found on the sugar cane plant, is reflected in Miss Sugar attire.
Mr Barley, penitently sits awaiting Miss Sugar to walk him as she finishes putting on her walking boots .
Miss Sugar is made in Mohair and Paisley pattern cotton fabric( for her lower half making her tights). She is dressed in linen Knickers, edged in antique lace, a 100% silk dress which has a three tiered skirt and hand stitched sequins which appear like granulated sugar on the bodice. Her coat is fully lined and the checked pattern has been carefully been matched 360 degrees even through the sleeves. Her hat is hand made and fully lined and she is waring green and cream leather boots.
Mr Barley is a vintage dog with glass eyes and I believe rabbit skin fur, his accessories have been loving made by myself in dark green leather.
I also did a few minor repairs and adjustments to him to make him look his best.
