My Tuesday wardrobe consisted of one of my favorite #BAJA dresses,
A collage of white and pink chiffon fabrics. The dress looks three- toned because of the overlap, and the dress is backed with stretchy lining. My necklace is lace with glass beads hanging off it, and the watch is antique finish , with floral designs. The lack of earrings stop the dress from becoming too dressy, and the vest in pale pink completes the look.
Me and Amrutha ( Co – founder WSol /BAJA ) spend so much of time thinking about what to name our dresses , as there will be a heart felt story behind every name .
Here is Flutter N fly from BAJA ‘S SS 2014 collection in most popular trend for this season – The butterfly print
The bright colored butterflies resembles a Wild English garden making it effortlessly chic and very desirable.
We call it ‘ Flutter n Fly’, since that is exactly what we want you to feel when you wear this dress. A soul who had been keeping her flutter inside , a lovely beautiful soul who can fly now …Flutter Flutter…

Looks like, the passion to work with fabrics runs in the family. As we at BAJA are into manufacturing our own garments we produce lot of scraps too. Being a Green family we tend to use up the scraps.
So this ‘summer vacation makeover project’ was to make rag dolls. Ashu my teenage daughter is the one with the right ideas and she was the teacher/ instructor/ supervisor. So in this project there were two of my kids Ashu , Esha and their two cousin sisters ( Sithu and Shalu )
The outline of the dolls were drawn on to white cotton cloth and cut.
The edges were stitched , it was amazing to see how these 8 to 14 year old
stitched the dolls together .
Two of them stitched it and turned it inside out and the other two just hemmed it with different colored thread.
Scraps of fabric were shredded ( I think they enjoyed this more ) to fill up the dolls .
Crochet thread were used for hair, this was the most time consuming part as each hair needed to be hand stitched.
Also saw redheads
Yep it was all worth it for this …..
Now they are busy with making clothes for the doll, so the story continues …….
Signing off for now…
