The same gown and same photo from the previous edition of the novel, were seen again in 2004 on a re-print of The Other Boleyn Girl


This pretty little gown has quite a long history! While many costumes from Crossed Swords were recycled from earlier productions such as Anne of the Thousand Days, the costumes of the main characters were designed by Judy Moorcroft. This lovely lavender gown was created for use on the Lady Jane Grey. The next time it was seen, it was much altered, having a decorative front piece added, and gold trim added to the edges of the sleeves. From there it went on to be almost unchanged, though obviously deteriorated and not used with the proper undergarments in Henry VIII, The Tudors, and even on several book covers, the last use of which photoshopped the dress to appear as if it were a different colour.
