The Sound of Music
Costume seen on Julie Andres as Maria Rainer
The Ghost and Mrs.Muir: Haunted Honeymoon
Costume seen on Yvonne Craig as Gladys Zimmermann

This beautiful wedding dress, designed by Dorothy Jeakins for use on Julie Andrews as Maria Rainer in the 1965 classic The Sound of Music.

The gown has a stand-away collar, piping trim to the neckline and waistline, slender long sleeves, a raised waistline to the front that graduates to a gathered train to the back, decorative fabric-covered buttons with loop closures running down the center back of the gown, silk organza lining to the bodice, and a graduated hemline.

Once the filmed wrapped, the gown went into the costume stock at The Western Costume Company, where it was likely rented out numerous times. One time it seems to have been used was in 1968 in the television show The Ghost and Mrs.Muir in the second episode - The Haunted Honeymoon, where it was worn by Yvonne Craig as Gladys Zimmermann, though the gown appears to have undergone some alterations.

At some point, the gown was purchased and put into the private collection of Jane Withers, and ultimately went up for acution at Julien's Live in 2013, where it sold for $23,040.
