Hand form the shapes of the flowers according to the drawing. Mix in different colors for shadows and highlights.
Use the variegated thread to free hand embroider. Do the contour first and then fill out the center parts, moving the fabric with your hands back and forward so that you go at least twice over every stitch and allow the thread to accumulate.

I wanted to keep it kind of simple.
When the embellishment is finished, continue sewing the garment.
