Sweater for my Sister

I'm embroidering on a sweater as a gift for my sister's birthday. Here is a before photo.
I added feather stitching around the neckline in 3 strands DMC floss, since I love vines so much, and I enjoy doing the feather stitch. I'm going to add flowers too, I'm considering oyster stitch buds. I chose darker colors because that is her preference. I'm not using any interfacing or using a hoop but I did test to be sure the stitching wouldn't get pulled out and I'm extra careful with my tension as I stitch. I need to get this finished and sent off since her birthday is next Sunday! She will be sweet 16!
