That's cool - how did you do the pantaloons? I have to make an Arabic Princess costume (imagine Princess Jasmine from Aladdin - disney version) and don't know how to go about it.
Ahh, well my sisters dance teacher gave us a pattern, but i looked at it and its basically a "baggy trouser" pattern, with wide hips going down into a small legs:
Then just gather the top onto a waist band, mine was gold.
*honestly, the instructions for this were terrible* Then Put elastic in the bottom and gather them up aswell. I think that explains it
