I just finished this baby sweater for a coworker of mine who's due in a month.  

She doesn't know the sex of the baby yet, but is hoping for a girl.

 I really liked this pattern so I made it for her, but now I'm wondering if it's too girly if she ends up having a boy.  What do you think?

The first picture is the most accurate representation of the colour, pale pastel lilac.





The pink elephant doesn't do the sweater justice in my opinion.

Thanks for looking!

It's beautiful!
I think that if it's newborn size then it's not too girly, just very classic, pale and lacy is good for babies.

It really depends on your friends.... is the dad really.... "MACHO?"  because that sweater is not macho.
It is definitely adorable, though!

I think it's really cute and just looks cuddly and baby-friendly.  Anyway, it's so annoying when people gender stereotype infants that bad.  My brother and his wife dress their baby boy like a linebacker.  No, really, he had a football jacket when he was 6 months old.

it is kinda girly - like, if i saw a baby in that i'd assume it was a girl.

but then what the hell - it's a gorgeous jacket. if i got it as a gift and i had a boy he'd damn well wear it until i couldn't stuff his growing limbs into it anymore.

i think it's lovely Smiley

they could always use it for the baptism (if they're into that sort of thing) 'cause those baptismal outfits look all lacy and girly anyway...

it's beautiful  Smiley  ....but it is girly.  maybe in white or blue it would be more unisex.

The sweater - what my mum calls a baby sacque -  is gorgeous. As for the colour, does it matter? Do girl babies not wear "boy" colours???

It's a baby sweater, created with love. My son had a mauve sweater co-ordinated with baby blue and he looked great.

Kudos for a job well done!

I adore it. I'd dress a boy in it. I think it really depends on the parents. I was knitting for a friend who's wife was expecting and they didn't know the sex of the baby. I asked if they had any color preferences because I was sick of making yellow unisex items. (Other friends had two other mystery sex babies on the way at the time.)
 He told me, "I will dress a girl in blue or a boy in pink, and we'll love it because it was hand made for us" If the parents to be are like that, I think it'll be fine.

Not too girly at all.......... how nice would that look over a beautiful dark blue onsie?  For a boy or a girl.
