process picture of a watercolor painting. I fell in love with this gorgeous Valentino dess from the Pre-Fall 2015 collection the minute I saw it, it's the most beautiful and dreamy dress I've ever seen. Since I obviously can't afford it, I thought I might as well paint it. My new motto!
I add a closeup picture of the illustration, because the scanner can't capture the beauty of gold and silver gouache.

Anyway, I decided to create a replica of these vintage gloves, using Shetland wool like the original pair, but with a few improvements. I made a small alteration to the chart, added a longer, tighter cuff to keep my wrists snug, and knit the fingers longer so the gloves fit my hands nicely. Now I hope this new pair will last as long as my mum's. Who knows? Maybe in other 40 years someone will be knitting a replica of mine :)

Instagram, and here's the final illustration! It's inspired by one of the nicest places I visited in Helsinki last Autumn,Töölönlahti Bay, with it's amazing houses and friendly ducks.
