I picked up a cheap pair of plain pants to add to the skeleton. Instead of just dipping the entire pair into monster mud, I decided to mix up a solution of liquid starch, water and white glue. I would submerge the pants into the solution, squeeze out the excess and slip them onto my skeleton.
The bags around the bottom part of the legs was to protect the finished pieces (the boot & peg-leg) from getting messed up during this part of the build. After I slipped on the pants, I stuffed some plastic bag inside the legs to fill it out a little and help hold the shape. Because it wasn't monster mud, the pants set up in about 4 hours.
This doesn't make it very rigid, but helps hold the folds in the fabric until I'm ready to apply the monster mud. I am able to wet the areas I don't like and refold the pants when necessary.
