Just spreading the word for those who aren't on the HotPatterns mailing list and/or didn't see the discussion on Facebook...

Trudy is willing to make a pretty fabulous "vintage" HotPatterns jacket pattern available again if she gets enough pre-orders. I'm starting this thread in the pure self-interest of hoping she does because I love the design of this jacket:

HP WSJ Maharajah Jacket

TIA.

It's an interesting idea. Frankly, I liked this pattern company better when they were a bit more idiosyncratic than they are now, but offbeat designs seem difficult to sell in a shaky economy. Just look at what happened to the promising but offbeat au bonheur des petits mains pattern line.

It makes sense, if you can afford it, to listen to customers to assure that a pattern actually has a market.

I have pre-ordered in the hopes that... How did I miss this one?

It does make sense for HPs to see what demand actually might be since they will have to do this one over from scratch per Trudy's post.

ETA: apparently I can't catch typos ...

It does make sense. I know that they use a different block for drafting now than from the early patterns. (The biggest change that comes to mind is that there's more ease in the upper arm area now than there was in the early patterns.)
