About Ericka Renee
I am Ericka Renee also known as Lyela Belle. Sewing is a hobby for me. I sew mostly for myself and my family. In 2015, I took a very basic sewing class. I learned most of what I know from YouTube, one of my seamstress, and by trial and error. I am a nurse and also a graduate student, working towards my master’s degree in nursing. My interest in sewing started because I wanted to pick up a hobby and alter my nursing uniforms. I am so curvy that my nursing uniforms would never fit me correctly. Needless to say, I no longer wear uniforms and my interest in sewing switched to circle skirts and dresses, and peplum tops. I love, love, love everything fit and flare. Most of my creations are made with African printed materials because I love the colors and patterns, plus my in-laws are African. Please do enjoy my curvy contributions, it is a pleasure to share my experiences with you.
