Erica Bunker, DIY Style is a fashion sewing blog that was established in 2005. Erica loves inspiring others who enjoy creating their own wardrobe through the art of sewing. Erica demonstrates how she pulls inspiration from the runway and luxury brands to create beautifully tailored, designer-quality, classic garments with couture details and a contemporary twist.  There is an "art" to cultivating a wardrobe. Cultivation is not an overnight process, it takes time. Erica shows how to look beyond outdated commercial pattern instructions, how to select appropriate fabrics and how the average home sewer can create their own modern wardrobe. 

Building a home-sewn wardrobe takes patience in allowing yourself to grow, learn and to tolerate occasional setbacks. On the blog, you will also find not only expert-level sewing, but also fashion savvy styling tips.

Thanks for the tag @stylesewme! • 1. I was in the United States Army Reserves for 10 years 1988-1998). I was on orders to go Desert Storm but found out I was pregnant with my oldest daughter! 2. I'm the biggest introvert. Interactions cause me to need a nap. But I function as an extrovert whenever necessary. 3. I'm a Southern Gal through and through. So when I tell you, "Bless Your Heart"... you know what it is! 4. I'm an amateur wine aficionado. Meaning, big wine snob! Say HELL NO to moscato! 5. I eat seafood at least 5 times a week. I live in a Gulf Coast State, so it's a must! 6. My husband and I are both only children. Can you say selfish?! 7. I cuss, a lot. My mouth is horrible. I will cuss you up one side and down the other. 8. "It is what it is" is my favorite phrase. I don't stress over things I can't change. 9. I've become obsessed with home decor since I moved. And it's affecting my sewing time.  10. I've become obsessed with gardening since I moved. And it's affecting my sewing time. 11. I'm almost ashamed to admit how happy I am to be an empty nester. I love my quiet and CLEAN house. 12. I hate grocery shopping. My husband does it the majority of the time. 13. I take 3 showers a day. One before the gym. One after the gym. And before bed. 14. I'm 46 years old and I have no gray hair. But I have hot flashes and night sweats. I'd gladly trade. 15. I love the smell of bleach. That's how I know it's clean! 16. I love flea markets and thrift stores. 17. Department stores overwhelm me. I have no love for that type of shopping. 18. I have a degree in Accounting with a minor in Finance. And it was the biggest waste of my time. 19. I don't pretend to be one of those superwomen that can do everything. I can only focus on one major thing at a time. 20. Sleep, exercise and eating foods that don't make me feel bloated are probably the most important things to me right now.
