I have a silk taffeta that I want to use for the Vogue 8789 (vintage reprint). The pattern has built in facings and isn't lined. But should silk taffeta be lined?

I would line it.
If you line it there will be less stress on the seams of your lovely silk taffeta. The stress would show in pulling around the seams and would eventually tear the fabric.
It will also slide over your body better and be more comfortable to wear.

I have made a silk taffeta shirt/jacket before and didn't line it and regretted it since I was only able to wear it a few times before it looked *worn*

Absolutely line it. It will wear better, fit better and look better.

Thank you for helping. I will start looking for a lining fabric for my dress.
