Novella Royale is the culmination of two things; a considerate design ideology and the raw vision of its founder/designer, Mary Myers. Mary is a salt of the earth, third generation seamstress who cut her teeth designing accessories for larger fashion manufacturers. While grateful for the opportunities presented to her, she could not ignore the nagging desire to take charge of her own destiny. She decided to couple her reduce, re-use, recycle design philosophy with her fate and took the plunge, jumping headlong into the creation of her own brand which she named after her young daughter, Novella Royale.
Had to return this skirt. ?The waist ban was tighter that I would have liked and the skirt was too long. ?Being 5'7 I have never had a problem with a skirt being too long, but this one did not work. ?I tried moving the waist band up so that it would fit better, but my rib cage was too wide for the band to fit around. ?Overall a bad fit. ?The pattern itself is beautiful.?
I am 5'4 and a curvy size 4. ?Though I am short, I like long skirt to draw attention from my ample backside. - the only thing that really makes me curvy. ?But the pattern on my short frame was a bit overwhelming - not the simple summer Bohemian look I love and was striving for. ?I think this would work best for a tall, very slim woman. ?
