Clothing and stash questions

So do I need to completely redo my stash. I use all sorts of diapers, but do I need to go to mostly prefolds and fitteds so they are not wearing a cover? Also, DD is at that crazy roll over while I'm changing her stage, so it actually much easier and nicer to not have to even put a diaper on, but it's so cold here, so I do like to keep clothes on her. We have not been doing EC for long, so we do have a lot of misses and I'm still learning with her.
So, should I be getting more fitteds?
And, I would use babylegs, but her thighs are soooo chubby that they just dig into her little skin. Are there different things I could put on her legs that won't cut in?

Huggslugs are not as tight as babylegs. You can also make your own babylegs from knee-high socks and they wouldn't be as tight either. I like to use tights with a slit cut in the back, then you don't have red leg marks at all.

Here is a pick of what we use in colder weather in post #30:

I do sew the socks, but I don't see why you couldn't just cut them off.
I followed these instructions (but made the ankle cuff wider than she did) for the babylegs:

And the shishinix (actually Shi Shi Nix EC Baby Pants- but I'm lazy) here:
