About the Costume

These gowns are interesting. The first is from the 2005 production of Pride and Prejudice, and the second is from the 2008 Sense and Sensibility. At first, it was believed these gowns were the same and that it had merely been dyed for use in Sense and Sensibility. However, close inspection of the stripe placement on the gown reveals that these costumes are not the same. Still, they are so similar in their make and style – especially in the back lacing – that it’s possible the pink gown still originated with Pride and Prejudice. The similarities are too hard to overlook, so chances are the costume designer made quite a few very similar gowns to save on time. Many productions utilize this technique – such as the ladies in waiting in the 1998 film Elizabeth.

If anyone has high-resolution shots of these two gowns, or more observations about what is the same and what is different, as well as images if you happen to manage to spot the pink striped dress in Pride and Prejudice (I know it’s there somewhere!), please do send them in!

Costume Commentary

  1. The biggest design difference I can see is the cross over on the bodice. The costume on Hattie Morahan seems to cross to the right and Kiera Knightly’s seems to cross to the left. It might be a recreation, but I don’t think it’s the same costume.

  2. There seems to be a button on the white gown front, which I don’t see on the other, though the shot is fuzzy. The back stitches also look different to me–wider spaced and darker on the white gown. But of course those are things that could have been altered.
