About the Costume

This blue Edwardian gown has a long history of usage. It was worn twice in The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes, first, in the 1971 episode The Horse of the Invisible, where Michele Dotrice wore it as Mary Higgins, followed by the 1973 episode The Sensible Action of Lieutenant Holst when it was worn by Virginia Stride as Ulla Holst. Unfortunately, no costume designer is listed for The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes, so this dress likely originated with an earlier production.

In 1975 it was used twice – first in Anne of Avonlea by Sabina Franklyn as Philippa Gordon, and then by Madeleine Cannon as Princess Toria in the mini-series Edward VII. In 1981 it was spotted in The Good Soldier on an extra, and in 1985 it was worn by Helena Bonham Carter as Lucy Honeychurch in A Room with a View.
