Dame en désabillé de chambre is the title of a print housed in the British Museum, which shows a woman holding a piece of embroidery in her hands. The print dates to about 1675. The woman is shown wearing a long apron that appears to be decorated with lace or whitework embroidery of some kind. She is holding a needle in her right hand and a long band with a stylised floral motif in her left hand.

The print is based on the work of the French designer and engraver, Jean Lepautre (1618-1682). It was produced in Paris. It is one of twelve prints depicting French fashion for men and women.
