Embroidered Flower on Old Nighty

Isn't this a lovely little embroidered flower?
It is Satin Stitch (roughly done) and I think they used two strands of floss.  It might even be a floche but it didn't look quite as smooth as  floche usually looks.
I plan to copy it and use it somewhere.  You can too, if you'd like! (I would like to see it if you do!)

A friend brought me this nightgown to show me the embroidered flower.  The materials are not fine (poly lace - gasp!) but it is sure cute.  And do you notice the smocking on either side?

It is smocked with the Honeycomb!  One of my favorite Smocking Stitches.  
Very Old Fashioned!
