Rain-skirt: the end of soaked pants legs!

My job requires that I walk outside several times throughout the day. When it rains, I end up wet from the knee down and I basically don't dry out until I get home. Not my idea of fun.

I ran across this tutorial in the Craftzine blog a few days ago. A rain skirt! What a clever idea. The below tutorial walks you through transforming an old rain coat into a easy button up skirt. I personally like the idea of snaps but you could do either. I also would just start from scratch with rainwear fabric. This can be hard to come by so an old or cheap raincoat you found in a thrift store could work for your fabric source.
