Casually Fancy

Dress to dance!

Get yourself in the right mood for dancing –
even if it’s “just” in your living room.

The way you dress influences the way you dance. What’s most important to you about the clothes you wear for dancing? Is it that you look good in them? Is it that they allow you to move the way you want? There is a way to get the best of both worlds: retro look and modern comfort, clothes made for movement that boost your inspiration for the vintage style of dancing you love so much: Casually Fancy!

I custom make men’s and women’s trousers on individual order!

Every body is different and every body wants to move differently. This is why I adapt my pattern to your individual measurements and wishes!
You choose the color and style, and I sew them to your specifications.

Made to fit, made to move!…and handmade with love by Katja

Men’s and Women’s trousers for Lindy Hoppers

Katja’s story

What’s your experience when shopping for trousers? Depending on the current fashion trend you can find high-waisted trousers that play on the vintage look. But too often, mainstream brands have their sizes and shapes modelled after – well, models! Slender figures, slim waist and slim hips, delicate legs… But if you are a dancer, a sporty person, your muscles need some space in those pant legs!

My personal experience was: If I can fit my legs and buttocks in the trousers, they end up way too big around the waist. And vica versa, a pair that would fit nicely around my waist would make my legs look like sausages trapped in their casing. That’s why I started to create trousers for myself and soon learned that I was not alone with my struggles! Many people asked where they could buy those, and that’s how Casually Fancy was born.

Where do you shop when you need new trousers? One month fast fashion offers some vintage-looking silhouettes, the next those styles are gone and it’s all back to modern, slim-legged, low-waist business trousers that just don’t match the vibe of swing dancing. Maybe you don’t enjoy hunting for just the right thing in shops and prefer online shopping. But then how do you know they’ll fit right and feel comfortable enough for dancing?

Here’s where Casually Fancy comes in: trousers with a vintage touch, but comfortable like sweatpants, produced exactly to your measurements – made to fit your body and created with dancing in mind. And the care-free experience doesn’t stop there: the trousers are machine-washable and pretty much iron-free! So you don’t have to worry about what to wear anymore, instead, spend your time enjoying your dancing!

How it works

There are two different styles for women: either classic with waistband, or paper bag style folded top (like Jo Hoffberg is wearing)…

Then men’s pants are high-waisted and have little wing-tips in the back in reference to wearing suspenders.

You can see the color choices in the middle picture. If you are looking for something specific, just let me know, maybe I can find it!

The material I use is a blend of viscose for softness and nice touch, elastane for stretch and ease of movement and polyester so they hold their shape, can be machine washed and mostly do not need ironing…
