Arrow Mai's Outfit

Does anyone know of some good patterns for Mai's outfit? I was about to find a decent one for the pants, but I'd have to modify it some. Just wondering if anyone knew of some good ones. Or if anyone has made her outfit and can give me some pointers?

I drafted the patterns for my girlfriend's Mai cosplay, but I'm a crazy bastard who likes that sort of thing, and probably put way more research and thought into it than any sane person would. For instance, her pants are actually the same type of jumpsuit thing that Toph wears in her Fire Nation outfit, with a shirt and the overdress on top. I could scan you the cutting diagrams if you like.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.

Cutting diagrams are attached as jpgs. I apologize in advance for my handwriting. My girlfriend is 5'5 and fairly slim, so you might need to fiddle with the sizing. Each graph paper box is 4", with 1/2" seam allowance included. For my girlfriend's measurements, it worked out to 2 1/2 yards for the shirt and pants, and 2 yards for the overdress, both at 44" wide. I also attached the instructions for the overdress, because I pretty much made it up.

This will give you instructions on the sleeve gussets for the shirt. This should give you an idea of how the rest of it goes together and how it fastens. You will need twill tape or ribbon for the ties.

This will give you instructions for the main part of the pants. Instead of waist ties, you'll be doing a draw-tie casing at the top and at your waist, and obviously not leaving the side gaps.
