What does “Tailored” mean?

Knitwear that is streamlined, elegant, and functional on multiple levels is Tailored. Accessories that are “slow-fashion,” durable, and classically stylish are Tailored. Knitted designs that adapt to all sensitivities, accommodate all shapes and sizes, and are infinitely customizable are definitely Tailored!

These knits will help you to blend in, even while standing out! You can wear a beanie/scarf set just like those in the biggest department stores,yet in the fiber that feels best on your skin, in the color that suits your complexion best, and in the size that flatters your particular shape most.

Why do I need Tailored knitwear?

Some people are left out of the mainstream of society for reasons beyond their control, due to environment, culture, or medical circumstances. Being on the outside and yearning to be in is always painful. A human society thrives when diverse individuals cooperate and combine their talents for the greater good of all. To date, the fashion industry has done a poor job of addressing the needs and desires of all facets of the market, choosing to serve a minority of sizes and shapes, and fostering an attitude that judges everyone else as less-than-beautiful.

Tailored—Knits That Fit provides handmade knitwear for all shapes of people, in all available fibers, and in all sizes. I make a special effort to reach consumers of Plus-size and Sensory-adaptive garments. At this early stage of the company’s development, I am primarily focused on producing knitted hats and scarves, but any custom order will be considered. Production is entirely designed and made by hand in the United States, and can be delivered to any address worldwide. I am committed to creating functional art of the highest quality, which will care for its uniquely suited owner for years to come.

Tailored items are periodically available for sale via an Etsy shop, but they are available primarily at this site and via wholesale arrangements. If you’d like to receive e-mails with advance notice of sales and events, please join the A-List by clicking here: http://eepurl.com/gS1NGL

Who is the designer—this Natalie De Anda?

I am the Chief Needle Artist and sole proprietor, based in Los Angeles, California. I am a knitter who learned the craft from an instructional booklet during junior high school, in the mild climate of Southern California, USA. I am outside of the mainstream fashion size spectrum: shoulders too narrow, belly too big, hips too small, waist too big, and feet of two different widths (though both feet have too big a circumference!). When I learned to fit my knitting to my particular shape, I wanted to do the same for everyone else. Tailored—Knit That Fit was created to bring petite as well as plus sizes in from the cold, beginning with properly fitting hats and scarves.

I live and work in East Los Angeles, California. Currently, items are being produced using the yarn stock on hand, but I am happy to track down the perfect fiber to accommodate a client’s allergic or sensitivity needs for custom or pre-orders. Alternate stitch patterns are also negotiable, with prices adjusted accordingly. I enjoy a problem-solving challenge, so bring it on!
