About the Costume

This gorgeous Victorian gown seems to have originated with the 1985 TV movie Florence Nightingale. Costumes for this film are attributed to Marit Allen, who went on to design costumes for Little Shop of Horrors, Scarlett, Snow White: A Tale of Terror and Love in the Time of Cholera.

The dress was originally used on Jaclyn Smith as Florence Nightingale. It was used several years later in 1996 on Tara Fitzgerald as Helen in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. It was seen a second time that same year on Elle Macpherson as Blanche Ingram in Jane Eyre, where some trim and flowers were added to give it a different look.

Costume Commentary

  1. Yeah, I am absolutely going to have to check it out because the cast looks AMAZING! I sawa few clips online as well – costumes look pretty as well. I was really surprised by this dress though. I always assumed it was made for Tenant of Wildfell hall just becuase the fabric looked so bright and…new. I was really surprised to find it dated toeleven years previous! It makes me wonder where else this dress has turned up in between 85 and 96.

  2. I’ve actually seen this a few times on tv (but not recently). It’s pretty good imo, and it has a really good cast: Dalton, Clair Bloom, Jeremy Brett, Julian Fellowes, Brian Cox, and Tim West.

  3. I just found out about it from the contributor above a few days ago – it looks like it is available at least in Region 1 and 2 on Amazon. and Amazon.co.uk. It was apparently made for for tv back in 1985. I’m going to have to sit down and watch it, because I discovered it stars Timothy Dalton…and I do love Timothy Dalton, ESPECIALLY in period dramas. 🙂
