So I started this a week ago.This is going to be the gold Elvis-ish jacket that Conrad Birdie wears on the Ed Sullivan show. Since Birdie is supposed to be going into the military the 'feel' of the outfit is supposed to be military in nature. I'm using a McCall's uniform pattern but I shortened it at the waist to make it more American in style and also because I was running out of fabric.

Our local paper, The York Daily Record, did a feature piece on our preparations for Bye Bye Birdie. If you look you can find me ironing there in the background. Those are my own personal scissors and pins! Lame that I'm excited about that but I am.
It's really cool that they did a piece on the costume crew. Usually the focus is on actors so it's nice to get a nod.

|Conrad Birdie Fan Club logo design. The font is a modified Giddy Up and the inspiration was basically an Aeropostale hoodie. I had to print it backwards, trace onto Wonder Under and then carefully cut it out.|
|The first applique I did onto a knit because it won't fray but it does this annoying curly thing so I scrapped that.|
