IC023 is a 59" wide Plain Weave Faille in 100% Cotton.

Faille has the flattened ribbed pattern of grosgrain and the uninterrupted crispy sheen of the silky-smooth surface of Satin. This combination gives Faille the distinctive hand and appearance it is known for - textured, lustrous, luxurious, and crisp.

This cloth has become the fabric of choice for top interior and fashion designers. You have seen it used for formal dresses and gowns; it is also a popular pick for making skirts, blouses, and summer dresses for ladies and girls. Faille has made its name in home textiles and is used for bedding, decorative pillows, and drapes as well.

This fabric is at the higher end of the lightweight categories and weighs a lavish 4.4 ounces a square yard with its remarkable texture and unforgettable feel.

This Faille fabric can be woven from various fibers, but nature-made fibers are far more pleasant to wear and much easier to work with. That’s why we made this out of 100% cotton.

FS exclusive hand-painted artwork is printed with the best available machinery, using reactive dye ink that gives long-lasting colors and is not harmful to the body, to transfer these paintings onto 100% Cotton fabric.

We also brought three solid colors: white, beige, and black, to accompany your printed cloth.

Our collection received rigorous Oeko-Tex certification and is a part of the BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) - ensuring that these items are biodegradable, recyclable, and free of harmful toxins or irritants (good for your family and good for the planet).


All designs are created and available exclusively at F|S.com.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

I purchased 3 remnants to make a dress but decided to make a skirt & top with enough extra to make a second top. I used the Haslam Dressmaking System and used two different patterns from 1949 and will use a 3rd pattern for a double breasted vest top for options. It's a little wrinkled after wearing it out today! I love the beautiful breathable material and final look! (Lining and slip made from white optic handkerchief linen)

This was my first time sewing with cotton faille, and I was surprised at its structure while still offering a really soft hand feel and light drape. It's structured enough to create something fun like a fitted pair of wide leg trousers but still pleasant enough to be on a baby's skin as a woven dress. There's something that feels so classy about a cream and blue floral, and it always draws me in; but this one has butterflies too, which solely contributed to an "add to cart" moment, knowing that my toddler would have a hay day counting the butterflies on our matching dresses.
