Anyone literate in french?

First I have to say
1, I only took one french class.
2. I'm a writer trying to use a french word. lol.

I want to make sure its right. So I'm asking the experts, you. ;)

Is this sentence using desabile right? And have I spelled it correctly?

"Thinking old lady Wilmont saw her in desabile and was shocked she turned to apologize, but stopped when she saw what Mrs. Wilmont was looking at. "

  • I thought it was deshabille? Not an expert, though.

  • The use looks right to me, by the way, but as I said, not an expert.

  • Sorry for the third reply. I also couldn't put in the accents. You may just want to use the English word. If you want to use the French word you may need to put in accents and also italicize.
