I didn't care for Princess Sofia's Te Deum appearance. While not a disaster, everything in reality was a little off.
- Sleeves were too long. So much bunching!
- Fit was tight (maybe it fit days/weeks earlier when it was being made?)
- Hat with hair down

I've read some pregnant women feel very warm so she may not have needed a coat. Also, I don't think the family dressed for half-mourning. Queen Silvia's patterned sapphire suit was cheery and bright. However, if they did wear half-mourning, then Sofia's grey is still acceptable.

This outift is definitely a hit! Finally a dress that doesn't pull, is too tight or has wrinkles. I'm not sure Sofia has borrowed all the pieces since I don't think Victoria and she wear the same size!

the outfit is the best Sofia's worn in months. the middle parting hairstyle is so unflattering on her though.

She looks very nice, I don't think this was borrowed from Victoria.

The dress is borrowed but the jacket is her own. (I have been chatting with Seraphine)

I really like that the members of the family share some outfits with eachother. It must be especially practical when it comes to later stage maternity wear - there are not many occasions to reuse them.

I also like that the Queen (I guess it's her) has saved some clothes from Victoria and Madeleines childhood, so that the grandchildren can now wear them. I guess she has saved some of CP's clothes as well - we have to wait and see.

All in all, this is definitely a hit for Sofia.

I also like this blue and white outfit on Sofia - the bow detail is sweet too.

IMO the dress seems to have been altered,maybe the sleeves removed and the neckline changed. Sofia does look great. I like her hair parted in the centre .

The outfit is spot on IMO but the parting in the hair is unflattering.

Good look on Sofia The only thing that is a bit odd, is the edge of the pocket showing under the coat but barely notice. Looks great. Though she needs to stop using the middle part, not a good look

Is the coat also Vic's??? It looks like her white maternity coat, and Sofia just added a blue belt/bow to match the dress under it

I agree, one of the better outfits she's worn during her pregnancy. Very polished and pretty. With this outfit, her hair isn't bothering me so much.

Fine except for the bow. How nice they share clothing.

She looks excellent, definitely one of the best maternity looks she's put together. I agree the middle part is not flattering, but it's not nearly as noticeable when she dresses like this. When her outfit is 'off' your eye wants to pick out every defect, when it's spot on not so much. Bravo, keep it up Sofia!

I don't think this outfit quite rates a Bravo, but it is one of her better looks. Minus the bow and her hair, this is definitely a thumbs up.

Seraphine has stated Sofia has the jacket so the dress may very well be from Victoria. It's a smart move for all the princesses. I preferred the jacket with the white bow but it doesn't look too bad at all with the blue.

I think Sofia looked elegant and her ensemble well coordinated. Using a centre part for her hair seems to be her signature 'go to' look as was Victoria's straight pulled back ponytail and later, bun. It suits her by not accentuating her very high forehead and as such, is very flattering.

The black shoes do not work with the blue/white color scheme, but overall nice departure from the usual tight outfits Sofia wears.

I don't get the whole borrow. I am all for her borrowing the dress, but then why not go all the way What is the point of buying an identical maternity jacket to her SIL?? I am sure the blue belt could have easily be swapped out on Vic's. Why buy the identical jacket?
