Our mission is to be the premier supplier of top-quality custom-sewn Character Skirts for the Dance community.
Our skirts meet the requirements for the Royal Academy of Dance, and are suitable for all ages. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced dancer, we will create the perfect skirt for you.
Brenda Lasher was first introduced to the Royal Academy of Dance in 2011 when her oldest daughter started dancing with a Royal Academy certified teacher, Eileen Razetti at the Academy Ballet School of Annapolis.
Her lifelong hobby of sewing made her a natural fit to assist with costuming for dance troupe productions, which continued after her second daughter joined the school.
In the summer of 2018 Eileen learned that her current Character Skirt supplier, Lilly Rosado, was preparing to retire. She immediately thought of Brenda and suggested that Lilly reach out to her.
Brenda’s years of experience creating historically accurate garments for a local clothing company gave her the confidence to consider taking on this new challenge, and they entered into a discussion. In the fall of 2018, Brenda purchased the business from Lilly, and Brenda’s Custom Character Skirts was born.
We’re honored to continue Lilly’s 28-year tradition of creating beautiful, attractive, well fitting, affordable Character Skirts and accessories.
