I'm actually a freecutter, so I don't use patterns or anything =3 The best advice I can offer is to have a dressform to work with. I would be lost without mine!

Sorry that it's been so quiet on the dA page! Although I'm still working on orders from last date, I did have lots of new designs planned to be released this month. Unfortunately earlier in the week, my two main sewing machines for zippers, zig zags, and pretty much everything but a straight stitch broke  XD  While my industrial dressmaker's machine lets me finish most orders, a lot of the more complicated designs that I was planning on working on have to wait until my other machines are fixed  @_@  

Here are some things to look forward to

  • KH3 Sora
  • Iron Man (revamp)
  • Vegeta - Saiyan Armor
  • Printed Kimono Dresses
  • Naruto and Sasuke skirts
  • Toon Link and Sheik Skirts
  • Disneybound designs
  • Printed tights and costume dresses

Here's hoping everything goes as planned so I can add some new things to the store soon  <333

  • Listening to: Louis XIV
  • Reading: Tomorrow and Tomorrow
  • Watching: Chuck
  • Playing: Minecraft
  • Eating: Turkey Chili
  • Drinking: Cucumber Water

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! I was one of your customers who bought a kimono dress in December last year; I got to wear it to our city's anime convention and got so many compliments, and I wanted to thank you so much for making the dress, I had such a wonderful time wearing it to the convention!
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner May 26, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Eee! So glad you loved it! Putting the outfit together is the best part! It's amazing how many different ways you can reinvent a base costume like a pinafore/kimono by just changing a couple accessories
