I'd freak if you did the Eeveeloutions (especially Flareon!). I'd totally work it, or at least try to!!!!

I would totally just DIE from happiness if you would make a disney villain themed pinafore!!! especially one of jafar and ursula or a disney side character like GENIE :D

Have you considered any Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) inspired pinafores? Or The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices?

Hello! Welcome to the DA site for the Darling Army! I specialize in making otaku cute! No longer do girls need to wear pants to be their favorite boy characters!

I specialize in femme designs inspired by anime, gaming, and geek culture in general. Most designs are in the form of aprons and pinafores which are a type of dress accessory. You can follow along in a variety of ways!

Join the Darling Army on Facebook and instantly be updated about upcoming events and designs. The Darling Army facebook page is also unique in that it allows you to post your own photos of you wearing Darling Army designs! Show off your full costume and show the world how you are a member of the Darling Army! I also post fanart of characters in DA designs, so feel free to submit them!

I finally have my own store! Introducing the Darling Army Store! This is where I sell existing designs as well as accept new commissions =) I only accept 20 orders at a time so, if everything is marked as Coming Soon, that means I'll be accpeting another 20 orders in a week or so, so check my Facebook to find out exactly when!

Hi :3
i really wanted to ask this question, how long have you been sewing ?
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I made my own costume sin middle school, but then fell out of sewing until college. I didn't start seriously sewing until I was in my master's program, though
amber-artwork Featured By Owner 5 days ago  New member
That is so cool *^* I'm in High School and I recently just started sewing. I hope that someday I'll be a pro like you :3
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
For me it's just a lot of trial and error since I'm a freecutter. Patterns make me crazy, so I never use them  XD
supershadowhuntr95 Featured By Owner Edited 6 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
I really hope you open back up sales soon! 
My work has a costume contest every year, and I feel like I could win with the Link kimono dress! 
Plus, I get to wear my costume to work on Halloween, and I'm convinced I would be the only Link in the entire casino!

I'm actually opening for orders on Saturday morning  ^_^  You just have to be quick  XD
