Yeah, that's what I thought too. However, since I do have the fabric and it's not going to be very hard to do it, I might just line the pants anyway. That fancy extra touch, you know Smile . We shall see.

A thin cotton type material might help give the velvet an extra amount of strength on the pants. But, I wouldn't say they have to be lined. Personal preference.

Here's what I would try:
1. Take your hair and put it up in a high ponytail. Use another hair elastic to tuck the ponytail under.
2. Use a fake ponytail under the loop/folded ponytail of your own hair.
3. Separate one small section of the fake ponytail and leave it hanging while you fold under/loop the rest of the fake ponytail.
4. Wrap the hanging/leftover section of hair around the area of overlap for the two, looped ponytails (as many times as it will wrap, loosely) and use bobbie pins to secure it under the tails.

I'm not sure what a clear ponytail is...
I used to use a ponytail that I bought at one of those accessory stores at our mall (like Claire's or similar), and for a while I used one I bought on eBay that attached with a claw-clip.

That looks pretty good! I like it. Hair can be really hard to work with, I know.

I have found packages of clear elastic bands at Dollar Tree on occasion, though they are usually the small ones. WalMart generally has multi-size packages of Goody brand clear elastics in the hair accessories aisle.

There is also this tutorial on YouTube for the hairstyle :

But yours is looking very good already, so you may not need it Smile

Well I think I might take the plunge and make the red throne room dress.

I'm digging through fabric options right now and confused as to what Biggar meant.

The shape of this undergarment was constructed using many narrow panels of canvas that were reinforced with rings of crinolne steel around the hem to keep the shape rigid and support the weight of the fabric, allowing it to skim the floor, creating a floating, gliding effect. I considered velvet, but with some of the section being cut on the cross, the reversal of the velvet pile would have been extremely obvious and ugly under film lighting. I chose instead a fine silk-satin cord, which was mounted on a more densely-woven silk prior to construction, and each panel (approximately twenty-five in the dress and fifteen in each sleeve) was self-piped.

So the dress is silk, but as to what kind, I'm at a loss. She says silk-satin cord, but as I've never heard of that kind of fabric, I'm assuming she meant the detail cord on the collar?

corduroy type fabric is also listed as cord (at list it is on the stuff i've been measuring here) but not sure if that is what the fabric is as corduroy tends to have obvious lines and that doesn't seem to.
not sure if it helps but gives you a new search option
