~~ With two daughters heavily involved in competitive Irish dance and in need of solo costumes, I decided to try my hand at making them myself. Once other dance families realized that I had the ability to do this, they began asking me to make their dancer's dresses as well. One thing led to another and Pennie Drew Dresses officially became a business in January of 2007. I have been creating and sewing solo dresses, school dresses, and team/performance skirts and accessories ever since. I find making Irish dance costumes of all types both challenging and rewarding. Located in southwestern Maine, I currently have dresses "dancing" in several regions of the US, Canada, England, and New Zealand, and Snazzy Bags located all over the world!
