Help with Hikaru and Kaoru (Ouran) Arabian Outfits!

I need help from you guys, once again! I need help finding a patten, or at least tips, to make the pants for Hikaru and Kaoru's arabian outfits.

Here is reference to help you out:

(Reference scanned in by me from my Ouran Costume book, please don't steal )

Any help, any at all, will be greatly appreciated!

I saw the pic and immediately thought of Aladdin.
I found this and this in the Kingdom Hearts Cosplay thread.

edit: McCall's Pattern 2814 or something similar might work, though you'd need to shorten the pants length or add poofiness.

Thanks! I'm not a fan of 'Stuffing pants' though. A pattern that makes the pants automatically poofy will work best, since the con will get hot. Thanks, though!!

One thread mentioned FolkWear brand sewing patterns. Pattern 144 has pantaloons that have a natural poof. There may be others out there.

I recommend that pants pattern, I used it for my Shippo pants and while I did have to add a bit of a fabric to get them as poofy as I wanted them, it worked great. You would have to shorten them and change the waistband a bit, but there's no stuffing involved. ^^

Here's the pants I made with that pattern ^^

I would think something lightweight. Muslin? It wrinkles terribly though. Some sort of cotton would be best.

Would twill work good? I want a fabric that will retain the pants poofyness.

...costume book? where can I get this costume book?

Also, I'm making poofity pants for my shishi cosplay, basically they're slightly oversized pajama/sweat pants that have a velcro strip at the bottom. I velcro it around my calf and they poofity around it. :3 Fairly simple and the velcro sticks and is easilly adjustible (elastics tighten as much as they can and with squishy parts like calves, circulation would be cut off)

I bought the costume book for $37 at the Ohayocon. It was the last one there. You can get if offa ebay I believe for around the same price. Anywhere else, they charge alot more.
