By Malinda Wiesner (Th« Register's Fashion Editor) A BLOTCH here and a splotch there — it's all part of-the crafty tie dye craze currently influencing summer prints. Actually the dyeing isn't a new idea; it's an ancient method of textile decoration. Basically, the fabric is knotted at random and dipped into dye to produce colorful sunburst patterns. The tie dye ready-to-wear clothes available are, of course, not hand done. The original pattern was designed in this manner and then machines took over to streamline and mass produce the prints for a fraction of the cost that the hand-dyed yards of fabric would be. Tie dye prints are especially popular in moderately priced sportswear where jeans, T-shirts, skirts and vests feature the pattern. There is also a large and •colorful selection^ of tie dye prints available by the yard to the home sewer. W HILE YOU may prefer the convenience of buy=_ ing ready-done dye jobs, don't overlook the unique possibilities that can be derived from a package of dye, a plain piece of fabric and a little ingenuity. Tie dyeing is simple enough for a child to accomplish and exciting enough to capture the interest of adults as well. For your first project, start .with a plain white square of fabric. You will find that a natural fiber like cotton will take commercial dye more readily than will a synthetic. You can buy your fabric by the yard or start with a ready-hemmed piece like a handkercbiefr scarf or dish towel. Tools such as a wooden spoon, rubber gloves and a -Fabric is tied and ready to dye. Note top three sections are tied with string, the fourth, is tied with wider band of fabric for variation. large pan or tub are recommended. • Take hold of your square by pinching it in the center. Give it a shake to let it fall in natural folds. Now tie off a portion of the fabric about an inch or so down from this pinched center. Use a piece op string, rag or a rope to tie it securely. ' Another inch or more down from this tie. make another. Tie off as many times as you wish — each tie will produce a ring in the completed sunburst pattern. • Following directions on the package, dip your tied fabric into the dye. The color will not penetrate completely into the tied off areas. Bill Tice chose the" tie dye print for this gown in the Royal Robe collection. It features a gathered skirt and full sleeves. a multitude of variations in the procedure. F OR A pattern with more colors try this: Start with your white square and lie it. off as directed. Dip it in, for example, yellow. Dry and then untie it in one or. two places and dip it again, this time in blue. Your finished sunburst, will he white, blue and green. (The yellow of the first dye bath turns green when combined with the second blue dye.) Try using rubber bands to tie the fabric. Tie several knots in the material, _ or gather the fabric tightly with a needle and thread. Each produces a slightly different pattern. — Some craftsmen like to concoct their own dye from berries, tea, marigolds and other flowers. "' + ** You can reverse the basic tie dyeing process by starting with a dark colored fabric, tying it off and then clipping ~in bleach instead of dye. •'" and admire the colorful radiating motif. You will note that there is a surprise element in tie'dyeing. It is-imr possible to plan precisely I what .a design will look like in the end and no two tie dyes are the same.
