Judy Garland's fans may remember the ivory dress the mega-star was wearing when singing "In Your Easter Bonnet" in "Easter Parade," (1948) in which she starred with Fred Astaire.

Now they will be able to purchase the dress for an estimate US$4,000-$6,000 while sailing the Atlantic Ocean on an upcoming Cunard cruise from New York City to Southampton aboard Queen Mary 2.

The items are from Michael Siewert's collection. He has been collecting Garland memorabilia since he was a kid. The sale is conducted by Julien's Auctions.

The price of Inside cabins for the week-long cruise starts from US$649 per person, double occupancy.
