About the Costume

This dress has been spotted a staggering ten times across thirty years! It was seen as early as 1977 when Meg Wynn Owen wore it as Léonie in The Duellists. This was followed by Sabina Franklyn wearing the costume for the role of Jane Bennet in the 1980 television series adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Next, it was spotted on an extra in the 1991 television movie Duel of Hearts before it was recycled by the 1994 Princess Caraboo, where Rachel Fielding wore it as Mrs. Benson. Several uncredited extras then wore it in productions such as 1995’s Pride and Prejudice, 1995’s Sense and Sensibility, and 2002’s The Count of Monte Cristo. Next, Julie Cox wore the gown as Annabella Milbanke in the 2003 Byron. Four years later, in 2007, it was seen on another uncredited extra in Miss Austen Regrets. It was used a tenth and final time that same year by Freema Agyeman as Tattycoram in Little Dorrit.

Costume Commentary

  1. It took me a second or two – but yup – I think you’re absolutely right. That is a CRAZY good catch. You know this means this dress is now the mose spotted of any so far? Ten times! And you just know it’s in other films too just waiting to be discovered…

  2. Guess what I just discovered on an extra in Duel of Hearts (1991)? The paisley is barely visible, but while the dvd is playing I can see the swirls on the fabric (at the knee) as the extra walks along, and the horizontal stripe above! The costume designer, Joan Ellacott, must have liked this dress when she used it in P&P80, so she used it again in DoH.

  3. As I cannot actually see a zipper, I cannot say for certain. But my impression has always been (while watching P&P80) that it was a zipper. There are several costumes in P&P80 with what appear to be a zipper down the back. 🙂

  4. It’s just so wrong! I understand it to save time in theatre perhaps for quick costume changes…and I understand putting in zippers in places where you can’t see them and no one will ever know they are there…but just putting a zipper up the back of an 18th century garment makes you wonder what the designer was thinking. 🙂

  5. are you all realy sure about the zipper? i would haver understood that, were it for a television-costume. but a costume for a film that clearly aims as high as barry lyndon it really is quite… tragic.

    shrewesbury lasses: do you have a picture of the zipper? my first impression was, that there is a row of small buttons covered with the same fabric the bustle of the dress is made of. shame, i don’t have this one

  6. Yah! I was just about the say it’s tied with the red one now for appearances! I wonder which dress – this one or the red one will show up again and take the prize for most ever.

    It has a zipper in the back? I don’t know how I didn’t notice that, but that’s HILARIOUS! You know….in a …tragic sort of way. 🙂

  7. Yes, I’m so excited about Anna’s discovery! I love this costume (even though it has a zipper on the back!), and I’m glad to know where it originated. Now it’s tied with the red dress for 9 appearances.

  8. look what i have found: i believe the dress originates from ridley scotts “the duellists” (1977) and was worn by meg wynn owen as d’huberts sister. the costumes for this were done by tom rand, who also used this gown in his other films “princess caraboo” and “the count of monte christo”.
