A Monday Morning Shoutout

I stopped doing shout-outs several months ago, but I went to the mailbox on Saturday and found my "Winter/Holiday Sewing Today" pattern magazine ~ that's what they are calling the "old" Butterick pattern magazine now! As I was flipping through the magazine, I came upon an article about/by Vonnevo from Patternreview. And the sad thing is that is how I have always thought of her as Vonnevo when she has a real name, Yvonne Andrews!

The article was about how Yvonne took McCalls Pattern 5007 and made four different jackets from it with at least two being designer knock-offs! So I want to do a big Monday morning shout-out to Yvonne for the magazine article and for making those wonderful jackets!

If you haven't received your copy of the pattern magazine yet, or if you don't subscribe, run right out and get a copy because we should do all that we can to support fellow sewists! When one is featured or mentioned in a magazine article, I think we all benefit and we all should be proud!

So my Monday Morning Shout-out is to Yvonne Andrews! Keep on doing what you do!


  1. I'll second that one! I love her reviews especially on the M5007 and S4082!

  2. Ditto! I rushed out to buy McCalls 5007 after reading her reviews and seeing her fabulous jackets.

  3. A very worthy recipent of your Monday morning shoutout! Not only is she extremely talented but also very generous sharing her talent (and her stash!)

  4. I have not heard of this magazine, but if it has an article by Vonnevo I will search it out. Her jackets are beautiful, and I too purchased that pattern.

  5. Thanks for letting us know! I will definitely track this one down! Her work is gorgeous and she's very willing to share all the details with us.

  6. Lovely jackets...lovely lady! We Aussies claim her as our own !


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated.
