Gorgeous!  I did a small piece of tabby, using the recycled silk as weft, and have been thinking about other ways of using it.

Notes

This fabric is weft-faced.  I used the sari silk in plain weave between bands of Flessbergplegg (boundweave on 3-shaft pointed twill) woven with rayon floss.

I wove lots of it, then cut it into squares and re-assembled the squares on the bias.  From that fabric and the lengths of chenille I was able to sew this jacket.  Lining is tie-dyed rayon.
