Sew Maxi for Mother's Day Mommy & Me Edition, McCall's 7755 and Simplicity 8910

NOTE: LATE POST!!! I Forgot to publish this on Mother's Day


Hello and Happy Mother's Day!! Today I am sharing part of my contribution for the Sew Maxi for Mother’s Day challenge that is on Instagram AND this is also a special collaboration!! NOTE: You can also watch the full YouTube video review featuring my mother by clicking here! Today’s post and make is very special because not only is it part of my contribution for the challenge, but it is also a special Mommy and Me collaboration! I have collaborated with Heather from Textiletailoredthoughts (you can find her here) and Rochelle of Rochelle.handmade.designs (you can find her here), and we all made items for the challenge but incorporated the Mommy & Me addition! For my portion of the collaboration, my mother and I sewed Mother’s Day outfits using the same fabric but we used any pattern that we desired to use! The fabric was purchased two summers ago in Cozumel Mexico! While making our purchases, my mom decided on this beautiful black and white polka dot cotton knit and I picked up three meters myself!!! Since the purchase, neither of us has had a chance to make something with it, so we decided to use it to make our outfits for Mother’s day. I used McCall’s 7755 to make my jumpsuit (view B), and my mother used Simplicity 8910 to make her dress! Below you will find MANY pictures of our sewing makes and our special Day! You will also find a full pattern review below!!! NOTE: You can also watch the full YouTube video by clicking here!

Pattern Review

Pattern Number: McCall’s 7755 Pattern Description: Misses' romper, jumpsuit and belt- Loose-fitting romper and jumpsuit have neckline with encased drawstring, front and back neck slits, pockets and leg variations and belt. Pattern Sizing: XS-XL Size that I Cut: L, Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the round/oval type shape at the bottom, I liked that it is sleeveless because I plan to wear this while on vacation, I like the front and back center open slits, and also I like the pockets. The things that I do not care for is the arm holes are way too big!!! Ugh! This happened the last time I made something similar. That is actually my fault because I should have measured it. The front slit is way too long as well. Fabric Used: Cotton Knit with images of black polka dots with a white background Fabric Purchased: Fabric store in Cozumel Mexico Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: None Would I sew it again? Yes, but I would adjust the arm hole size and the front slit length. Did you do anything different/special to make this project? No Would you recommend it to others? Yes!!!

Mom’s Review Pattern Number: Simplicity 8910 Pattern Description: Misses' Dress with length and sleeve variation Pattern Sizing: 6-22 Size that I Cut: 20 but should have cut an 18 because I had to take quite a few inches in. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes Were the instructions easy to follow? What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Fabric Used: Cotton Knit with images of black polka dots with a white background Fabric Purchased: Fabric store in Cozumel Mexico Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Added piping, a flower, bias tape to the pockets and the pockets. Would I sew it again? No, due to preferring two piece outfits Would you recommend it to others? Yes!
