This beautifully embroidered costume has been used as both a robe and as a dress in several productions. It was first created by costume designer Andrea Galer for the 1999 film version of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, where it was worn on Victoria Hamilton as maria Bertam.
The costume was used again in 2008 on Emma Pierson as Fanny Dorrit in Little Dorrit, and again in 2009 on Carice van Houten as Maria Oldknow in From Time to Time. It was seen again most recently in the 2013 film Austenland on Keri Russell as Jane Hayes

A STUDY ON COSTUME DESIGN ı Marie Antoinette (2006): costumes by Milena Canonero"At the start of pre-production, Coppola handed Canonero a box of pastel-coloured macaroons from the Ladurée pastry house. “She told me, ‘These are the colours I love’,” recalls Canonero. “I used them as a palette. Sofia was clear about the colouration, but left the rest to me. We squeezed the essence of the period, without reproducing it. Even if you think you know a lot about it,” she argues, “you always have to look for a new angle. I simplified the very heavy look of the 18th century. I wanted it to be believable, but more stylized.”
“Sofia is a bit like me in that she is most interested in the feeling that a costume gives to the audience, so some of our work in Marie Antoinette is symbolic, some of it is stylish and some of it is psychological. There is always a reason for a particular texture or colour. Sofia wanted a richness and a freshness for Marie Antoinette and the clothes need to show her evolution from a very young girl to a sophisticated woman. You see through her dresses how she gains more confidence and even her décolletage becomes more emphasized.” - Milena Canonero
