I have a friend who would love a pair of trousers in the style worn by Zouave troops during the CW. I have no idea where to find a pattern, but I knew you lovely people seemed the most likely to be able to tell me. The pattern doesn't need to be historically accurate - he just liked the style, and wants a pair for everyday use.
I see Period Impressions has a pattern, but I have already been warned against that company. Names of patterns or instructions on how to draft one would be most welcome.

I'm afraid none of the usual suspects (Past Patterns, Truly Victorian, Laughing Moon) seem to have one--and you're probably saving yourself a lot of frustration by avoiding Period Impressions.  Since this is a military item, you may have better luck asking at the Authentic Campaigner, as there may be other pattern companies they could point you toward.

I second the suggestion to search and then ask on the Authentic Campaigner; they're very well-suited for top-notch military advice.
