Interesting information on this pattern:
MissMoon55 wrote to Vogue in November 2009 to enquire about the possibility of a Vintage Vogue reissue based on this pattern. Vogue responded promptly and graciously:
"Thank you for your email, your e-mail is being passed onto others in our company. We are
always happy to hear from our home sewers and share in their success.
"However, below pattern cannot be re-published. Many of these designer
licenses are never to be obtained again. Alas, too many legal problems today.
We will be sure to keep the shape in mind for the future. Thanks for sharing."
