1, its not lined as its the same inside and out
2, i think what your seeing is a tissue type tracing/pattern paper, which would disolve when washed
3, ive never made anything yet, so im not sure, id think if the material will shrink then prewash, otherwise just make sure to measure while factoring in shrink and fitting
while looking for pattern try terms like longcoat, EGA(elegant gothic aristocrat)
if all else fails, use old ratty clothes and make small practice pieces first
like playing dress up with stuffed animals, just so you can visualize/practice the pattern
