I am having trouble finding this material and an appropriate pattern. Can anyone help?

Wow, that is an excellent material, it would be quite the fluke to find the same one.
I would suggest creating it "on the fly" in bright orange satin and making a diamond shape stencil to paint on the pattern. It might take some time but the effect would be awesome.

I hope you can sew well ;)

I also think it would be easiest to make the fabric. I'd probably make it out of a cotten blend so it'd be a lot easier to sew. Simplicity has a clown patter, while it's not a perfect match to the Pierrot picture you linked. You could probably use a jacket or robe pattern to go over your diamond fabric.
I did find some free patterns for the hat and collar.

The pattern Simplicity has.

If your willing to do some hunting you may be able to find something on the Costumer's Manifesto site.

Here is a pattern.

There are some harlequin fabrics on ebay, but I didn't see orange and black. Sometimes you can find it a joann or hancock fabrics as part of their costume collection.

If you can find a black/white diamond fabric in cotton or a cotton blend (or linen) then you could get orang dye and make it black/orange. The black would just look a little richer - but the white would go orange! (dying fabric is pretty easy in the washer, just make sure to get enough bottles to make it BRIGHT and run the washer through a cycle or two to remove the dye)
