The Process
When i was doing textile designing,we study the typical methods of tie & dye..its not an easy technique basically,i will like to share my experience here,so check its process
  •  I wash & shrink the white cotton fabric
  • I went to a tailor’s shop & order him just for cutting the fabric first,after i dye these cuttings,he stitch the shirt 
  • I make some pleats on fabric pieces & then fold,wrap & knot all these tightly,with 2 inches gap.
  • then i cook the blue color with adding some chemicals
  • after cooking well i add the tied & knotted fabric into it
  • I cook it almost for half an hour
  • then i place the fabric pieces under water pressure in sink so the extra color will release.
  • Then i anxiously wait until these pieces dry,
  • I reveal the mystery(threads) & then i saw the final was fine..perfect as i desire!
  • after pressing the pieces i forward these to tailor & he make the dyed scrap into a smart shirt..

 Well its completed now..(without model)
I hope you will like my creation,if you want to see any tie & dye tutorial i will try to make any one for you.I am thinking about making a tie & dye cotton shirt for summer with this technique..may be after exams i will do it,lots n lots of things have been postponed due to my exams..oops..what to do now!!!!
Well Take Care Sweeties..
