The final stretch: The lining has been finished – Na reta final: o forro já está acabado

 EN Summary: The jacket is almost finished, yay! I still need to sew the pockets and flaps (all by hand), including hand-worked buttonholes; there's also sewing the chain to the hem of the jacket but that's a walk in the park compared with what I've done so far. Keep reading to see details of the finished lining!
PT Sumário: A jaqueta está quase terminada! Ainda faltam os bolsos com paletas (inteiramente cosidos à mão, incluindo as casas de botão) e a corrente, no entanto se compararmos com o trabalho já feito, o que falta é canja. Continuem a ler para verem os detalhes do acabamento do forro!

EN: The difficult and tedious part of fell-stitching the lining to the facings and collar is pinning in in place (not the fell-stitching). One must be mindful of the lining not pulling the fashion fabric and it shouldn't be visible on the outside of the jacket either; there are also spots where the lining allowances must be clipped to accommodate curves. The juxtaposition of crossing seams must match entirely too.
PT: A parte mais dificil e tediosa do acabamento do forro é prendê-lo com alfinetes ao longo das guarnições, gola superior e bainha (depois coser com pontos invisíveis e ir retirando os alfinetes à medida que se cose é fácil). O forro não deve repuxar o tecido da jaqueta nem ser visivel do exterior; nas curvas as margens do forro devem ser cuidadosamente golpeadas. As costuras do forro ao cruzarem-se devem coincidir exatamente.
 EN: Below you can see the lining fell-stitched to the jacket's facing and hem. I am very pleased with how the jacket is turning out:
PT: Abaixo podem ver o forro cosido à mão à guarnição da frente e à bainha. Estou bastante satisfeita com o resultado até agora:
 EN: A quilted lining is a thing of beauty, isn't it?
PT: Um forro acolchoado assim é uma beleza, não é?
 EN: I've just received this gorgeous postcard from a dear sewing friend, I really love it... I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
PT: Recebi este lindo postal de uma Amiga das costuras, amei. Um Natal muito Feliz para todos!

Tany, this is beautiful and reflects all the hard work. Every time I see a post from you I'm reminded that I haven't posted your buttons. I'm so bad, but have some excuses at least. Love to all in Portugal.

Your jacket looks wonderful! It's gorgeous! I finally finished mine and I'm quite pleased with it, only wish for weather that would allow me to wear it. I really should post some pictures and a review. Thank you for blogging your experiences with your jackets, it has been very helpful to me.
