This summer I had a crazy schedule and did not get as much sewing done as I had planned. I honestly have enough winter stuff and really only feel motivated to sew summer clothing. Do any of you sew out of season. It is going to be warm here in south Alabama for awhile longer so I might get some wear out of this clothing before next summer. I was just wondering. Thanks.

Since (at least for me) sewing or a specific project can be interrupted at any time, sewing for the off season is no big deal. In fact, it might take that long before I finish, lol.

I am also in the south (and my family is in AZ), and it seems that sewing "summer" clothing here is never really off-season - you just need some layering. The other way around might be more difficult. I can't imagine sewing fleece right now (highs still 90+) and wools would be even worse! LOL

And again- - you say you have enough winter stuff. So sew what you need regardless of season. Here in TX - a cute cotton (or chiffon - poly or silk) blouse (sleeveless, short or 3/4 sleeve) can be worn year round. Even most of my cardis are now 3/4 sleeve!

I am always sewing out of season! And then when the appropriate season comes I have new clothes to wear. Although it may not always be in season, but its kind of fun!

I wish I would stay the same d*** size from season to season! It's always up or down....

Spoken by a true tortoise Donna.
Why not sew out of season? I am slow too and often have things that I need to finish or want to sew when the season ends. I think sewing ahead a season is just fine! Like Donna said some things can be worn year round with a cardigan or jacket anyway.

I often sew out of season by necessity because I'm traveling somewhere warm in the winter or cold in the summer and can't find what I want in the stores. That's the beauty of sewing and having a stash.
