'ette', not '-fette'. Smaller version, often female: suffragette, majorette, usherette (though not always: laundry/laundrette*, cigar/cigarette).
(And it's eTYmology )
PS *Laundrette introduced the idea of self-service to the neologizing mix, which gave rise to one strange rootless word (with a prefix and then a suffix): "superette" (which I haven't seen myself, but is allegedly sometimes used for a 'convenience store').
