From Knitting Lingerie Style:

In this design, the nosegay worn between the breasts in the days of old has been moved to the shoulder, where it embellishes a simple, well-shaped tank.  I like to think of it as a juxtaposition of the lowly muslin chemise from with the camisole evolved and a festive corsage. 

The flowers, which are crocheted, are stitched on to the camisole here, but they can also be pinned on using jewelry pin backs and then transferred to a hat, jacket or other garment as desired.
