The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 21

21st December: Cherry Blossom briefs

I instantly fell in love with this pink floral printed silk, which reminded me of the cherry blossoms in Japan and was the inspiration behind this design.

Japan is my favourite country and is hugely inspiring, even in lingerie design. These knickers have side ties which tie into a bow detail to the back, reminiscent of the bow back Japanese kimono's.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 18

18th December: Nautical knickers

The nautical trend has been shifting in and out of fashion over the past few years, so it is about time Laced With Love attempted a nautical design, it is also an excuse to use up the little anchor buttons that have been sat in my sewing box.

These knickers are made from 100% silk in sailor blue with large white bow and anchor button detail.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 17

17th December: Cherry Pie knickers

I love anything a bit kitsch or retro, and fell in love with this fabric when I found it in a small fabric store in Melbourne, Australia. The fabric has a cherry pie print and reminded me of vintage packaging and posters from the 1940's.

The vintage style print looks adorable made into these cute little knickers, finished with black elastic

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 15

15th December: Tartan pattern briefs

I have had the smallest piece of tartan fabric in my fabric cupboard for over a year, just the perfect size to make these cute little knickers. Since visiting Edinburgh recently I have a new found love for tartan and love the slight preppy look these knickers have.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 14

14th December: Liberty Print green tone knickers

I fell in love with day 7's Liberty Print briefs: so I couldn't resist making them in another colourway.

This time using the greentone Liberty print floral cotton, trimmed with a lace edging to give the briefs and adorable vintage look.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 11

11th December: Vintage button briefs

Along with my obsession with fabric, is an obsession to collect buttons, especially the vintage kind.
I actually prefer buttons to be used as a detail, rather than functionality which is why Laced With Love photoshoots often have completely impractical button jewellery and randomly placed vintage buttons to add a kitsche charm.

Todays knickers are made from teal silk with a trio of silver tone vintage buttons.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 8

8th December: Monotone silk briefs

Whenever I visit a new city, I can't resist having a look in the local fabric shops and haberdasheries to see how they compare to the UK.
I picked up this black and white floral printed silk in Melbourne, Australia. This is another fabric I have been reluctant to cut into, since I know I can't get any more. These simple but very pretty briefs have a printed centre panel and plain side panels and rear, which work perfectly with the contrasting black elastic and bows.

The 24 Briefs of Christmas: Day 1

1st December: Pin-up girl briefs

I got this Agent Provocateur pin-up girl printed silk last year in Paris and have been wishing I had bought more ever since! But at £40 a metre, I had to limit myself to 1 metre and have been very reluctant to cut into it. What better occasion to start using the silk than day 1 of Laced With Love's Christmas campaign - the 24 briefs of Christmas.

The gorgeous printed silk was only used for the centre panel, with ivory silk at the side panels and rear. The hot pink elastic and bows perfectly compliment the print.


A Laced With Love Christmas

It's the 1st of December and it's all very festive at Laced With Love HQ.

As a creative a way to use up the copious amounts of silk, trims and elastic in my fabric cupboard, Laced With Love is making a Christmas Knickers Advent Calendar, counting down the 24 days until Christmas with a different knicker style each day.
