You will need 2 rolls for TV142.

Does it matter what fabric is used for the bag lining and cincher?

Not really. A simple cotton would work fine. If you plan on wearing your hoops quite a lot, then you might want to go with a heavier fabric for the cincher. The cincher is kinda like a tiny corset, and heavy use might wear out a light-weight cotton.

Thank you for the answer!
One more question, please.
If the waist measure is between sizes, should I cut pieces B and D the smaller size, then C and E the larger size? Or is it okay to cut all the larger size and lace tighter? Or cut the smaller size and lace larger?

When something laces closed, you should always err on the smaller side. A larger gap is better than lacing it shut and having it still be too loose. YOu can cut 2 of the pieces at one size and 2 at the other size, or just the whole thing the smaller size. I think Either way would be just fine.

I am making three of these crinolines and the last one that I need to make is for a taller lady. Should I lengthen the grosgrain ribbon pieces some? I am guessing that her waist to floor length is probably around 44".

Hoops are supposed to be a bit short, typically about 10" above the ground. I am not sure a few more inches will be that big if an issue. Before you make up the last one, have your tall lady try one on and see how it looks. If it looks short, then yes, you can add length by stretching out the ribbons a bit. I would length the distance between the lower wires, leaving the top 2-3 wires the same.
