Jennifer Jones The Barretts of Wimpole Street Costume Dress and Corseted Undergarment. Designed for Jennifer Jones in her role as Elizabeth Barrett in the 1957 drama, this dress of brown-violet silk faille is composed of a floor length skirt and bodice plus a satin undergarment. The bodice, trimmed with brown velvet and a fringe of chiffon, is shaped with stays and secured at the back with a series of hooks and eyes, and has a label bearing Jones' name and the film's production number. The undergarment is composed of a pink satin corset attached to a full floor length cream satin skirt edged in cotton lace eyelet and lined with ruffles, with an inner skirt of cotton edged with stiffening. It also bears a label with Jones' name and the Wimpole production number. Previously auctioned by Butterfield & Butterfield, the costume is in Fine condition with wear to the velvet and a green stain at the right shoulder. The undergarment is in Good condition with wear commensurate with age; the upper edge of the corset lining is desiccating and the lower left edge has come free from the skirt.
