Playing field hockey in heels! Wow! Looks like she was really playing too.

The tartan coat looks very nice on Kate, I can see both sides of the "ill fitting" issue, I would attribute it more to the McQueen styling; pocket flaps, and the skirt beginning higher in the back than the sides, and Kate's poor posture for the appearance of poor fitting.
At least the plaids match! She can wear the dark colors, and does have the height to pull off the large skirt, thankfully it is just long enough, would be even nicer with a few extra inches.

It is a nice look for her and I also can see how one can feel about the fit of the outfit given the flaps and the cut of the coat. It is a lovely plaid and I thought the boots looked really good.

Skirt doesn't look longer in front at all, unless you count the shots where she's in mid-stride or bending over, in which case, yes, I completely agree, the skirt is indeed ill-fitting and badly made.

Seriously, to each his own, but IMO there is nothing wrong with the construction, workmanship or technique of this outfit.

I didn't mean the skirt lengths were different all around, I expressed it poorly, what i meant was the actual skirt flares out from the bodice at a higher angle in the back than on the sides or front if you see it from the sides. It's not poor construction, just an unusual design. The skirt itself looks like it is eased out higher up in the back, creating a train or bustle effect.

I don't think that's how it's made, I think it just looks that way because she's in mid-stride. Again, this is just how I see it. It's okay that we disagree.
