Need fabric recommendations

So I've decided to make Burda 8280 for my skirt, the short version.

The fabrics recommended are tweed, crepe fabric, flannel or imitation leather. Do you think I could make this with a lighter fabric for spring? I'm a real beginner, so I'm not really sure what crepe fabric is. Do you think the pattern would work with a cotton poly blend or something? I just want to make a basic skirt that I can wear to work in the spring without pantyhose.

I'd appreciate any recommendations!
