Designer Zita also known as mom
Many don't know that many of my style inspirations actually come from my incredible mom. She is so wonderfully talented that she continues to blow my mind with her creativity. I have told you about one of my favorite sweaters that she has made me here. Now I wanted to share with you another one of my amazing favorites. This linen sweater dress is actually knitted from untreated, raw linen. My grandma, bought some of this linen about 30 years ago in a country side of Lithuania from an old women who grew her own flax. When we came across the leftovers of this yarn we grabbed our sketch book and designed this piece together! It took her a few weeks of hard work but I now have something that is not only fabulously chic but also has a lot of sentimental value. More to come from this fabulous new designer..
