I just purchased some nice burgundy wool to make a jacket from, and found some beautiful patterned silk organza in my stash with very complimentary colors that I'd like to use for the lining, but I'm wondering if it might be too delicate. I'm worried that it might tear with all the putting on/taking off that a jacket goes through.

Check out the wonderful organza linings done by 'Kathryn' to see the possibilities.

Silk can be a very strong, durable fabric.

I have used it to interline a taffetta unlined jacket and that worked fine

One of the reasons for lining is to hide construction details, like pockets shoulder pads etc, which organza won't do being sheer.
My favorite linings for jackets are silk charmeuse, silk twill and crepe de chine. I use silk organza for underlining but a print I'd save for a sheer top or jacket.

The particular organza I have is actually not completely sheer.. it's see through very close up, but at a distance it's fine. I'm having second thoughts now, though, because I don't think I have quite enough, and I think I'd rather have a nice silk top, as you said!

Here's one example of how the construction details look with a sheer organza lining.

Here are more detailed notes about another of bouclé, using this same lightweight approach.

Erica B also employed it for a lightweight jacket with a cardigan feel to it.

It seems to work very well for softly tailored jackets. Not so much, probably, for full-on tailoring.
