Summary:  Given a saturated Fell bundle $\A$ over an inverse semigroup $S$ which is semi-abelian in the sense that the fibers over the idempotents of $S$ are commutative, we construct a twisted \'etale groupoid $(\G,\Sigma)$ such that $\A$ can be recovered from $(\G,\Sigma)$ in a canonical way. As an application we recover most of Renault's recent result on the classification of Cartan subalgebras of $C^*$-algebras through twisted \'etale groupoids.
