Normally, to un-petite something you'd need to add height to the armhole as well. Might be that the fact that Burda thought it was a jumper saved you from armpit strangulation? The armhole was probably already lower than you'd have liked in a dress. Anyway, I'd call fabric that looked like that dupioni, if it was crisp. Raw silk is .. raw silk :-). Dupioni only has small shots of slubs. Raw silk is more coarsely woven, and usually not crisp, dupioni is.

Habotai weave is my guess. Colour is gorgeous on you (and I love your grey tights).

Mystery silk? Love the color, you did a great job and I like that you 'unpetited' it!
