Ongoing sewing project: the 70s inspired (faux) suede coat – Projeto em curso: Casaco de imitação de camurça estilo anos 70

Today I want to show you guys some progress photos of my current sewing project. The coat is almost done, I only have to sew the buttonholes, stitch in the buttons and apply the shoulder pads (they are just roughly pinned in place at this stage).
--- Viva pessoal, hoje queria mostrar-vos algumas fotos do projeto de costura que está em execução no momento. O casaco está quase pronto, falta fazer as casas, aplicar os botões e os chumaços (neste momento os chumaços estão mais ou menos no lugar presos com alfinetes).

The pattern is from Burda International magazine (April 1996, mod 912) and was originally a dress, but I decided to turn it into something that could double up as a spring coat too. I changed the front opening into a top down faux placket (it’s “faux” because there's actually a facing inside; the illusion of a placket is created by the fabric folding into a tuck and then top-stitched; the excess fabric introduced by the tuck was added to the pattern, of course).
