Has anyone tried this yet? I've been wanting to make one for at least a year...Nostalgia, I guess! But haven't found anything in the Big 4 or even indies that I like. The new HP pattern looks wonderful, but I've never made one of HP's tops, so would like a show of hands...Anyone made it yet? What did you think?

I love it. I'm making it as soon as mine gets here. (The wrong address accidentally got attached to my order via paypal, so I'm waiting for it to get re-sent.)

Saw it, loved the style. I've been seeing some of this style in the stores for a while.

However - just to vent for a moment. I am getting ready to make a bunch of clothes (just finished our move, and after a few days of unpacking and organizing, I'm finally getting back into sewing). HP has provided e-patterns for fabric.com, so how come they can't provide their regular patterns as an e-pattern? Once the shipping costs are added in, that pattern is close to $20 even with the 20% discount special.

They used to offer some of their patterns as e-patterns through PrintSew, but I think there were quite a few complaints about the fact they couldn't be downloaded to your computer, and that they were with PrintSew!!

I love my Hot Patterns and I don't mind using a pdf as it is generally MUCH cheaper than international postage, but wouldn't go near them bcause of the PrintSew issues

I can't wait to hear everyone's feedback when the sewing begins. I just went ahead and ordered the pattern....And I agree, the price stings. I've been on a pattern and fabric diet for awhile, but justified this one because I figure I can make one (or 2) for myself and one for DIL who is expecting in late September and moaning about the ugly (and expensive!) maternity clothes she's seeing in the stores. I watched Trudy's tutorial about this pattern and was a bit disappointed. Not nearly as detailed or informative as usual. Maybe when I have the pattern in front of me I'll see it differently.

Obviously they have tried regular PDFs as the free downloads on fabric.com are regular pdfs. Perhaps they will consider switching at some point. I think the real growth for indies IS in digital downloads...impulse purchases and the like. I'd much rather buy the digital download for a few $$ less, save on shipping, send to a local FedEx Office for printing, and pick up that afternoon.

It's easy to set up downloadable file for sale on a web site so I'm guessing they may have concerns about people sharing the files with other people??

If that's not the case - and if you are the owner of HP and want to know how to do this - just go to PayLoadz or eJunkie (I think that's what it's called) and set it up!!! PayLoadz had the code snippet that I pasted in the sidebar section of my blog and they handled the download/delivery portion. Payment was handled via PayPal.

I just ordered it. I was on the fence on buying another pattern - but then while going through my stash I found some fabric I wanted in that style - so got the pattern. Of course, why get one when 3 would be better - and they were all still on sale.

I can see where it international buyers really like having the PDF option - but I really don't like it - just my preference. Options are good.

I ordered the pattern and am waiting for delivery. I also watched the YouTube tutorial and did not find it wanting. It was pretty detailed for a simple pattern. She did not show the actual sewing but she described the order of seams and showed what detail needed on the vneck/fabric fold over. The front has a center seam. The gathers are more full on front and back and not so much on the shoulders. They provide the ease for the bust. There is a hem facing that she did not use on her example because of the fabric type used in her tutorial. This looks like a great basic. For every Hot Pattern, you should really make a mock up first (I would say that for every pattern actually).
