Oct 08, 2012 | 7:15am EDT

Garland wore a white, puff-ball blouse and blue gingham pinafore to play Dorothy in the 1939 film and the costume has become one of the most famous in cinema history.

The original outfit is now set to go under the hammer next month (Nov12) and is expected to raise $500,000 (£312,500).

Garland's costume is one of several identical outfits made for the movie, but the only one to have been seen on film and the only complete version to have survived intact.

The outfit will be displayed at the Stafford Hotel in London from Tuesday (09Oct12) before being exhibited at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, California ahead of the sale on 9-10 November (12).
