I've always loved these sheer like cotton fabrics and decided not to underline it since it will loose it's soft drape, besides I rather it remains thin for this warm weather.
My haberdashery did not stock my preferred bias binding brand Dolphin in white. What they had in white was the Carnation brand. I find the Dolphin brand to have a wider bias binding fold as compared to Carnation. That way I am able to sew a slightly wider seam to the fabric. Also the Carnation brand was a mix of polyester and cotton instead of all cotton, only 2.5M instead of 3M and the joins were horribly done. So I settled for light beige Dolphin brand.
