You've described what's shown in text and two sketches, in "Warp & Weft, A
Dictionary of Textile Terms", by Dorothy K. Burnham, page 86.
It shows it can be done two ways; one main weft floating as pattern, the
other uses doubled wefts, one weft interlacing as " a firm ground ", the
other weft floats as pattern.

I've been using a structure as follows: A single warp closely set
(closer than for balanced plain weave), two wefts alternating pick &
pick. Weft #1 interlaces in plain weave throughout, weft #2
interlaces in the SAME plain weave shed in ground areas, and in a
satin order in pattern areas. The ground effect is weftwise ribs,
with both wefts in the same plain weave shed. Pattern effect is satin
with weft #2, and weft #1 interlacing more or less invisibly in plain
weave behind.
