buttercup red dress
The following is a selection of Princess Bride inspired dress dresses I have created for customers over the years. The dresses are inspired by the iconic red dress that Buttercup wears in Princess Bride. Each version was unique as it really depended on what the customer wanted or what my current fabric store had in stock at the time. The dresses are made from a selection of high quality rayon fabric blends and ornate trim belts. Gold metal button were added to the cuffs of the puffed sleeves.

The belt on the gowns can be worn high on the waist or lower on the hips as it appears to be in the later part of the movie. Each gown features a high neckline, puffed sleeves, pleated skirt and an invisible zip up the back. These costume are simply inspired by the one worn in the movie. Not all details are exact. I simply wanted to capture the look and feel of Buttercup's Red Riding Dress Costume.
