Cord skirt in recycled sari fabric

I have in the past worn many different styles skirts made from pre-loved sari fabric. Many garments alas wear out in certain stress areas (bum and hips). I love the brocade, patterns and colours so I hang on to the fabric...for many years.

I have cut out a 'cord skirt copy' in bits and pieces of sari silk. Which proved more challenging than I thought. What with the wear holes I have made, previous holes and stains and the fact that most were cut on the bias and pattern direction (which I then decided to ignore) it was a tricky job. I also for interlining used some old mens shirts and some sheeting.

You put this silk here for me, Yes?
