Custom Sweaters - One of a Kind Sweaters
Custom Sweaters - One of a Kind Sweaters. Back in the 1990's, Custom Design Sweater Studio sold only hand knitted baby sweaters, with matching pants and rollbrim hats. I would knit all year on my home knitting machine, saving up dozens of baby sweater outfits to sell in the fall at local crafts shows. The heirloom quality and distinctive character of these one-of-a-kind designs made the sweaters very popular. Many of my customers encouraged me to sell my one-off sweaters in boutiques and local stores, which I have done.
Then along came the internet, and with it, Custom Design Sweater Studio changed into the business it is today. While about half of my business is devoted to recreating the traditional vintage college sweaters, the rest of the business is centered on one-of-a-kind special designs. I've had some unusual and interesting requests over the years, such as striped briefs to be worn over tights for a Halloween costume, a bar stool pillow with a lady's name on the front, a mask to be worn by a model on the NYC runway, and a black pullover with a silvery-gray very, very long turtleneck. My customers come from all over the world.
If you have something special in mind, a custom design can be the right solution. LinkdIn requested sweaters which could be worn by their employees and then easily removed while taking Christmas photos. Here are two photos of their custom designed sweaters. From the front, they look like regular crewneck sweaters. From the back, though, you can see that they were designed to be easily slipped on and off. The sweaters are adjustable with the tie closure. As the guests lined up for their group photos, they each put on a sweater, smiled for the camera, and then slipped the sweater off, handing it to the next person in line.
Here's what my customer had to say after receiving the shipment of sweaters for the LinkdIn party:
Working with Susan was an absolute joy! We were working with a large corporate client to create an "unconventional" solution for some holiday sweaters. Susan took our vision and made it a BEAUTIFUL reality! She matched our color perfectly and delivered an impeccable product (right on schedule!) that we were absolutely thrilled with. So grateful to have found her!" Lydia P."
Custom Knit Sweaters
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos of these custom sweaters, and that they provide inspiration for your own custom knitted sweater design. Each of these one-off designs was carefully knitted one row at a time on my home knitting machine. The sweaters are beautifully constructed, each seam painstakingly linked and finished, one at a time and with every possible attention to detail.
