Trust the Process - BTS with New York Bebe


We thought it would be a fun idea to take you behind the scenes to see what the process of creating our New York Bebe apparel is a little bit like! 
------
Before even starting, it takes a little brainstorming to come up with the color combinations but in all honestly, tie-dye makes mixing and matching colors THAT much easier (which is why we love it).
------
Keep reading to see the method to the madness - or joyful rainbow palettes - whatever you like to call it. :)
------
First of all, you're going to want to soak the garments of choice (we have kiddies crew necks here - stay tuned for final product) in water with soda ash for about 15 minutes to prep the fabric for the fun part...DYE!
------
------
Second, as you remove the pieces from the wash, start wringing them out one by one and start crumbling them into spirals before adding your elastics. 
------
------
Third, after crumbling and putting on the elastics, get ready for the mess! A fun mess though, we promise. I usually have about three color combinations minimum to add depth, sometimes four max. I also keep in mind not to use colors that are too similar so that I can have a nice variety of different color results. 
------
------
Fourth, once you have all of the garments soaked in dye to your favor, put each into their own separate ziploc bags and let them dry overnight! Trust the process. Patience is a virtue (something I'm sure all us parents have...right?).
------
Fifthget ready to remove the elastics after letting them sit for the night! After removal, soak the garments in cold water. 
------
Sixthmove those masterpieces into the washing machine - make sure to match your colors - and wash with cold water. 
------
Seventh, (almost there, like we said, patience!) once you've finished washing, move the pieces onto a drying rack. We recommend passing the time with a snack and some Netflix. 
------
------
Eighth, and VOILA! You've got beautifully hand-dyed pieces, each with their own personality, ready to be danced in, played in, and loved in! 
------
Of course, here at New York Bebe, we make each garment a little extra special with the touch of embroidery - highlighting some of the coolest cities in the US! The one we've created here is one of our newest styles for all you Upstate NYers - or if you just love Upstate New York, we don't blame you there either.

Thanks for reading along, happy tie-dying!
