I am looking for any ideas as I am totally not knowledgable about DIY etc. However I am living out here in the Czech Republic and it gets very very cold in the winter. The bedroom has a sloped roof with a swing down Velux window. Does anyone have any idea how I can go about stopping the draft that comes in. I have tried those insulation strip that you put around the edge with no sucess. I was thinking about taping up a few layers of cling film or clear plastic, but that would mean that I couldn't open the window.

(Almost) Any ideas welcome.
