Victoria Page from The Red Shoes

Victoria Page is a character from the 1948 classic film The Red Shoes, and is played by Moira Shearer. The story comes from a folktale and published by Hans Christian Andersen. The film follows Victoria who is an aspiring ballerina who is faced with the choice of choosing between dance and the man she loves.

In the iconic ballet performance scene, she wears bright red ballet shoes that tie up with ribbon,  white tights, a blush or cream long tulle skirt, a leotard with appliqués and a blue bow in her hair. If you enjoy sewing and want to add the blue details to her top, sew or attach a blue ruffle/pleated trim along the edge that matches her hair bow.

Snow White from Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White (voiced by Chloe Grace Moretz) is a woman transformed in Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs.  A pair of magical red shoes change Snow White’s appearance before she meets the Seven Dwarfs, including Prince Merlin.  While transformed, Snow White goes by the name Red Shoes to conceal her identity.  Snow White and Red Shoes wear the same outfit, with minor changes to the way it fits, so you can choose to wear the costume either way, depending on your preference.  Obviously, the most important part of your recreation is a pair of red high-heeled shoes.  You’ll also need a white top–you can opt for a longer-sleeved peasant top with a square neckline, or perhaps a shorter version with a lace front.  A dark red skirt and waist belt complete the look.
