About the Costume

This red Tudor gown was designed for Glenda Jackson’s portrayal of Elizabeth in the wonderful 1971 mini-series Elizabeth R. The gown was loosely based on a painting by William Scrots of Elizabeth as a young princess. 

The dress went on to be used in the 2000 documentary Elizabeth: The Acclaimed Saga of England’s Virgin Queen, where Imogen Slaughter wore it. Interestingly, the dress appears to have been made over to resemble a more accurate representation of the gown Elizabeth wore in the Scrots portrait. The partlet was removed, pearls and jewels were added to the neckline, and new sleeves (from the coronation gown from Elizabeth R) were added, among other changes. 

The dress would be seen the following year in another documentary – The Six Wives of Henry VIII, where an uncredited actress wore it as Princess Elizabeth. It was worn by yet another uncredited actress portraying the Princess in 2003’s Henry VIII, and in 2007 it was spotted on the cover of a reissue of a 1944 Margaret Irwin novel entitled Young Bess. Finally, in 2008 it was worn by Elisabeth Rees as Princess Mary in The Twisted Tale of Bloody Mary

The gown went up for auction at Bonhams in 2009, where it sold on June 16th for $1126. The auction listing describes the gown as:

A rust-colored gown, of patterned velvet, edged with gold braid and pearl and jewel effect beads, having large, turned back cuffs, revealing watered silk lining, and further lace sleeves, with boned bodice and laced back, together with a kirtle forepart of brown silk effect fabric with orange embroidered design.
