This one shouldn't be TOO heavy, actually.  It's only a long skirt with a wide ruffle, with another skirt underneath.  You can probably make a big difference in weight just by the materials you use.  I'd choose a nice cotton broadcloth.

I'm going to be a pirate for halloween too!  I'm using the butterick b3906 pattern:



It's got a similar shape to what you want.  Maybe you could modify the pattern for your shirt and also the skirt.  It seems like the ruffle is the same as your picture.  There are also some other good patterns in mccalls and simplicity halloween books right now...

To me the skirt looks like a really long circle skirt with just a wide ruffle at the bottom, which wouldn't be hard to make.  And I don't think it'd be too heavy if you used a cotton fabric (that's what it looks like the picture's is made of).

Here's another pattern to check out:


it's B4483 butterick I think...

Good luck!  You've got some great ideas!!

I found a this coat on NewPort News and thought it was pretty similar to the pirate style you're looking for!

you might be able to find a similar skirt pattern-wise by looking for can-can skirts or saloon skirts in addition to gypsy and flamenco, like chocoloka said
