The late Academy award winning actress wore this light blue floor-sweeping frock in several scenes of the 1939 classic, but now this vintage frock has faded to a dove gray color, E! Online reported.
James Tumblin, an avid ' Gone With the Wind' memorabilia collector, originally purchased this dress, featuring ball skirt, capelet, buttons down the bodice and a black, linear print, in early 1960s for 20 dollars, when he worked in the hair and makeup department at Universal Studios.
A straw hat worn by Leigh, was also sold for more than 52,000 dollars and some more six-figure items are set to be sold from Tumblin's collection.
