Cotton sateen uses a satin weave, but it is obviously made of cotton fibers. It shares a smooth, slightly shiny surface with satin, while the "wrong" side has a dull finish. This one is almost as light as a shirtweight, but it has 3% lycra in it, so it has just a bit more beefiness than shirting and a bit of stretch on the crossgrain. . Make tops, shirts, shells, vests, tunics, dresses, pants, and pencil skirts.
