This dress is a reproduction of Princess Buttercup's from the movie The Princess Bride. It's made of silk noil, which I custom dyed. I cartridge pleated the sleeves by hand into the sleeve cuffs. The back laces up through threaded eyelets. I scoured the internet looking for clear reference for the belt, but to no avail. I could tell that it was beaded, and the overall shape of it, but that was about it. So, I did my best to achieve the proper “feel” of the belt, without knowing exactly what it looked like in the movie. The belt is made of silk trim from India, over a band of the silk noil that the dress is made from. I sewed glass pearls to the trim to add elegance. It attaches by way of large snaps underneath the front overlap.
