OOO!! Me too. 
We had are first rain of the season yesterday, just while im working on a mini skirt  Undecided
I thought to myself what im going to do for skirts in the winter.  I started my making a denim skirt out of old jeans and leaving it really long.  Like maybe only cutting 0ff about 5 inches from the bottom hem.  i think it would look cute with some knee high boots

tights, tights, tights -

they're the only thing that makes skirts bearable in the fall/winter season. don't bother w/ pantyhose, it's too thin. an ever better thing to try is to go to a dance clothing store. the tights they use are very opague and heavy - very warm.

You could always line your skirts with a warmer material like fleece or microfibre or something.

Wear them over pants. I hate my legs so that is what I do.

Tights? go to tightsonline.com.

Skirts? Go to your local City Mission or other thrifty place and look for the a-line skirt patterns and bias skirt patterns of the early to mid 70's. As long skirts go, you could add some bigass pockets and lower the waist and viola! you have something hip and comfy. Also, what I do, is make a wrap skirt out of scraps, wool, or even fleece and wear that over your pants. I get funny looks sometimes but the joke's on them cuz I am warm so there Smiley

Would it ever be a good idea to make a fleece skirt ? I'm talking quite mini here .

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

Sweatshirt fleece might be ok, but polar fleece (especially the stuff found at most brick and mortar fabric stores) is probably going to pill when you wash it. Even the anti-pill stuff I bought isn't really designed to be washed very often. 

I've heard that Malden Mills fleece holds up better, but I don't have any personal experience with it.

If you're looking to sew a long skirt, there was a really nice looking pattern in the new Vogue patterns. The only reason I didn't buy the pattern is that 1) I have huge numbers of unsewn patterns as it is, and 2) it required 7-10 yards of fabric.  Incidentally, if you're looking for patterns, you can look at the big four online at www.simplicity.com and www.mccall.com (which has links to McCall's, Butterick,and Vogue).  It's so much easier for me to look at the patterns at home instead of dragging the kids in to wait while I look through the books at the store.

I always wear skirts, never pants, year round.  Tights are great, long skirts are fab, and so are tall boots of any heel height.  I'm allergic to nylon, so I tend to wear tall boots or tights of 100% cotton but still thin/nylon-looking (not like grade-school woven ones).  TightsOnline is great. 

Riding skirts are long and usually made of wool or tweed - classy, sexy, and comfy.  Smiley  You could find pictures on equestrian sites.
