Costumes for the 1969 film Anne of the Thousand Days were created by Margaret Furse. Her gowns not only won her an Academy Award for best costume design, but they also went on to be used in numerous productions over the years, including Elizabeth R, Carry On Henry, Mary, Queen of Scots, and The Tudors.

This light yellow, Tudor Era inspired gown originated in Anne of the Thousand Days, where it was worn by Genevieve Bujold as Anne Boleyn.

The costume was used again in 1977 in the film Crossed Swords (AKA: The Prince and the Pauper), where it appeared on an uncredited actress in the role of Katherine Parr.  The gown is clearly the same, though it has been slightly altered to give it a different look. The partlet has been removed and black fabric has been added to the front of the bodice.
