Hello!
I made this skirt to wear over your jeans or other clothes.
It's made from patchwork panels I made and lined with fleece. It's a separating zipper in the left side that goes from waist to knee and a 30cm slit in the right side.
I came up with the idea because I need warm clothes in the winter when I'm out for a walk for example. But then I might want to sit down in a coffee shop and then I need to change and thats not always very convenient among people Grin. So this skirt is very easy to take on and of. I'm very pleased with it besides the fleece tend to stick to the trousers beneath sometimes. (Depends on their material) It would have been better with a slippery fabric over the fleece. But it was hard enough to get one layer of lining in place so thats the way it is.

I like it. Smiley It is different, and unusual. Not only in colors, but both pattern and design.

For me though I most likely would were it just with tights, instead of pants.

That's pretty neat... great idea.  It's pretty cold here, but we still need to get outside for a bit.  I may try this, it's much more feminine than wresting into snow pants over my jeans Smiley

You know, I love it with the jeans.  I think it's cute, plus I bet it keeps the bum warm when the wind starts to blow.  We're experiencing our first really cold weather of the year here, and I'm now wishing I had something similar.

I love the pocket!

It really keeps your bum warm. It's very cosy.
I didn't plan to do a pocket at first.
The first star I sew became to small. I think I forgot the seam allowance Roll Eyes.
Then I used it as a pocket and it is very good to keep your reflector brick in at daytime and have it handy when it gets darker.

That's a cool and unique skirt, I'd wear it! Although,I 'd rock it with some wide legged sweat or knit pants.

That's so cool!  I love the stars.  I wish I'd thought of that when I had to wait for the school bus at 6am  Tongue  I bet my mother in law would love that skirt too; I might have to steal your idea and make her one!
