About the Costume

Costume designer Margaret Furse made this Tudor costume for the film Anne of the Thousand Days, winning an Academy Award for best costume design. The piece was initially worn by Katharine Blake as Elizabeth Boleyn. The costume was used again two years later, in 1971, for the BBC’s brilliant Elizabeth R, where it was spotted on an uncredited extra as a lady in waiting. The gown was worn again on an extra in 1972’s Mary, Queen of Scots, for which Margaret Furse once again designed the costumes. In order to cut back on cost, some of her previous creations were utilized. What is interesting about this costume’s use in Mary, Queen of Scots, is that the oversleeves seem to have been removed, while the undersleeves appear to have been reversed, with the bell of the sleeve now at the shoulder rather than at the wrist. This was likely done to give the gown a different, more Elizabethan look.
