About the Costume

This Victorian gown was probably designed for the 1991 production American Friends, where Connie Booth wore it as Miss Caroline Hartley. The dress went on to be worn twice in 1997, first on Honeysuckle Weeks as Millie in Rag Nymph and then on an extra in Washington Square. The velvet ribbon around the neckline and the velvet around the sleeves was removed for use in He Knew He Was Right in 2004 when Amy Marston wore it as Priscilla Stanbury.

Costume Commentary

    • Yeah! I saw this one in “Washington Square” a looong time ago and knew I’d seen it before, but could not figure out where else I’d seen it. I kept thinking it was a dress from “Little Women” for some reason…eventually when I compared it with your finds I realized it was the same one.
