Incredible embroidery detail on a satin bed jacket. RCIN 93206. ©

Charmis created several embroidered nightdresses and negligées for the dolls, all in pale shades of peach, pink and ivory. The embroidery on these pieces is particularly delicate and impressive as the scale of the stitching was necessarily minute. The lingerie is shown here in a pair of brown fabric covered treasure chests with studded imitation leather straps and lined in cream satin.
