Nah, the slit was actually sewn tighter. It's actually even higher from the beginning

I like the polka dot dress. It's super cute, fits well, and slit in the skirt is fine to me.

The color is lovely but not a fan of the print. And I agree the lack of structure in the dress emphasizes her stick figure. That with the volume of her hair, gives a Barbie impression Bit nice to see her in some different bright colours.

I assume from here:

You can see in this photo that Kate’s slit is to the third button, while it’s to the fifth button on the model:

I think Catherine had a nice look today. I like the white and black circles against the soft shade of blue. I like how she's matched her clutch with her shoes.

I really like this dress, both the print and shade of blue. I do agree with the remark about the shoes - she could be more adventurous.

A strappy sandal with a heel....something.

I'm not sure about the dress, to be honest. I do give Catherine props for trying something a little different.

Cute dress and just glad it's not her usual dress (single colour with no print/patterns). Again same nude shoes, which is okay and appropriate for her job, but fashion-wise nude coloured shoes are really boring.

This is a very flattering style for Catherine. The gathering across the back and around the front of the yoke and at the shoulder of the sleeves gave a softer, more feminine silhouette. The slit on the dress was, I thought, unnecessary and because she has such long legs the slit looks longer than it actually is.

I like the move from her usual block colours to a pattern, which is a fresh look for her although I too believe the nude accessories were flat and boring and actually clashed with the colours in the dress. Black accessories would have worked much better.

I like Kate's accessories much better than the model's. And I like that she closed the slit a bit. It looks nicer that way.

It's blue for the arrival. Checkoff the Maple Leaf Brooch. Also, another maple leaved hat. And I think the DM is saying the dress is Packham.

The big surprise for me is that George is now tall and slim and that Sophie Gregoire wore spectator shoes that were transparent.

Catherine looked fabulous. I love the color of the dress and the hat. The brooch was a great acknowledgement to Canada. It also happens to be one of my favorite brooches.

She looked like she always does, put together but a bit blah. Nothing remarkable or that interesting. Her hat looks like a blue version of the red maple leap she wore last time. Don't get me wrong, she looked fine, just under whelming. She was out shone by Sophie over all, color by the other women and in hats. I hope we see some more inspired looks on the tour. India was a mix, had some misses and some ones like horse they were boring but good, but she had some amazing looks. Hope to see dome here.

I do like the blue worn by Kate, love the shade, and the maple leaf brooch and updo. However, like others I'm hoping for new designs later on in the tour, new hats and new shoes, something different and out of the box.

Kate's blue dress was quite nice, the color suited her well, the style was flattering but nothing new to what she tends to wear at such formal events.

I'd be surprised if this is an actually Jenny Packham dress, this does not fit the designers house of style. This looks more like a bespoke McQueen or Erdem to me.

Such a Lovely and elegant look for day 1. Catherine looked so poised walking down the stairs focusing on her 2 children. Not a hair out of place, no skirts blowing in the wind. The color was vibrant ...and a fair amount of bling. Looking forward to a fun week of tour highlights.
