About the Costume

This fabulous dress was seen in the 1971 television series The Onedin Line, where Jessica Benton wore it as Elizabeth Frazer. The dress appeared the following year in the 1972 production The Strauss Family, where Carolyn Keston-Bloom wore it in the role of Therese Strauss. In 1976 it was worn by Sheila Kelvin as Mary Ann Leigh in Dickens of London. The costume was not seen again for many years, though it almost certainly was in use and has not been spotted. Finally, in 2007 it was worn by Imelda Staunton as Miss Pole in Cranford.
