After reading Nette's request to help raise funds for the Japan quake appeal, I decided to follow in her footsteps and Raffle off my 1936 "Out to play-suit" for the cause.
Although its a small step, and a small contribution, every small bit helps. I know, that just doing something, anything, makes me feel the world better.
So, this is how it works, if you want to enter the raffle to win the play-suit, donate US$10 (which is about $9.90AUS) to 'Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund' organized by 'global giving'.
At the bottom of this post you will find a link with more information about how to participate.
Each entry must donate this value or greater to enter. Once you have donated, leave a comment at the bottom of this post, with you receipt number and a valid email address (you can write the address in the format of mymailname 'at' hotmail 'dot' com). Feel free to enter as many times as you like, and remember, be generous, and give as much as your purse string will allow, but like I said previously, every little bit counts.
The raffle closes at 12.00pm EDT 26th March.
The raffle being held here at Molly-Made is in cooperation with A Bit of This and a Bit of That.
We are in no way affiliated with global giving, that's just our chosen method of getting funds safely to the affected area.
If you are the lucky winner, this is what you will receive:
The 1936 "Out to Play-Suit". It's about a size M. The waist measurement is 28 inches and the bust is on the tight side of 35 inches. The hips are free. It is by no means suited for a large busted girl! It's made of a cotton/synthetic blend houndstooth that has a nice drape and soft feel. The lapels and waist line are decorated with black poly rick rack and the neck and back button up with tiny vintage cherry red buttons and loop holes (hand sewn!). There is also a side zip for entry.
If you don't think its suited to you, feel free to enter anyway, it may make a nice gift for someone else.
I know that in my previous post I bad mouthed it a bit, but it is actually quite a nice piece. My love for it has somewhat rekindled since then, when I saw all the lovely comments left here and on burdastyle, it even made "featured project" on burdastyle homepage for the day.
And please keep in mind, that this is not a professionally sewn garment, I'm still learning!
If the play-suit doesn't quite tickle your fancy, head over to Nette's place and check out the beautiful satin blouse that she is raffling off.
