Sewing Progress , New Knitting on needles

New Knitting project underway
Phildar Tendances Hiver # 460 Pattern 12
Yarn: Rowan All Season Cotton as sub for Phildar Quietude.
Love the vintage styling and oversize crochet covered buttons.

A few evenings later, the back is done and front already on needles.Wonder if progress will be sustained?

Vogue Raincoat is stalled.The outer garment is done as is the lining.Welt pockets ( despite having fits) also in place.
The collar and collar band unit is sewn and trimmed and graded.
Need to baste the collar unit and attach the lining.
Then one pass buttonholes, as fabric wont tolerate any ripping.
How difficult is that?????
