100 Days Project – Week 1

by Estelle Puleston

Update 27/09/13 – Unfortunately I was way too busy, mainly due to a 3-week holiday in the middle of the project, to post the weekly updates I had hoped to write for the blog. I did however complete 43 of the 100 days and am still pretty proud I made it that far! You can see all of the designs here.

Just over a week ago I started the 100 Days Project, for which I’ll be creating a one-off lingerie accessory every day for 100 days. I’ll be posting a weekly update with the last 7 pieces I’ve made, but since the project started on a Friday there are 9 in this week’s round-up.

Until Friday I was working with elastics and findings left over from my Spring/Summer 2013 collection. I’ve got lots of ideas for new product styles that I needed specific materials for so expect some more original ideas next week, but for now I’ve experimented with more choker strap styles, more suspenders, a couple of pairs of detachable bra straps and my first ever elastic garter…









My favourite pieces are the triple-choker bra strap from day 1, the velour version of the simple black choker bra strap from day 7 (the velour elastic is lovely!) and the bridal straps from day 9 – another gorgeous elastic with a ruched satin layer, trimmed with Venetian lace.

You can buy all 9 pieces here whilst stocks last – they’re all one-off designs that will likely never be repeated.

Which pieces do you like best? What would you like to see more of?

Well done on all your items, I actually really like the white bra straps from day 7 with the lace, , just as an idea why don’t you make those detachable bra like straps for strapless dresses and add lace or bows etc so that a holiday maker could have one strapless dress and then add different straps, for example during the day the dress could be worn strapless like a sun dress and then changed fr evening use, it would make holiday packing a bit lighter, especially in these days of paying for your baggage, feel free to e-mail and let me know what you think of my idea. E-mail me at gym.gymnast@hotmail.co.uk. Thanks.

Hi Esty, it’s going to be interesting to see if you can come up with 100 different ideas!! That’s a challenge in itself for you, good luck with it, xx

Hi, all of the bra straps can be attached to dresses with removable straps as well as to bras 🙂 There are plenty more designs coming, I fell behind on weeks 2 & 3 a bit whilst waiting for new hooks and sliders to arrive but they should all be photographed soon, and there are a number of new detachable strap designs there that are great for summer.
