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!

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!

DarlingArmy Featured By Owner 9 hours ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Zoro is a commission only, but I do have designs for it. I didn't ever get too much into D. Gray Man, so people would have to commission that since I wouldn't just make it myself

i have a quetion, have you ever thought of makeing a dress that was like a sock monkey design or a toy of any kind? owo
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I have not  XD  Actually have a standing joke with my family. They would always buy me sock monkey stuff becuase I hated it and through it was creepy!
Crm-the-anime-fan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
lol if you still have them and dont want the sock monkey stuff i can take them, i love sock monkeys XD iv started to make them and all hand made too lol

also i got another question, do you use a sewing machine to make your dresses or do you hand sew everything?
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Combination of home sewing machine, dressmaker's machine, and serger  =3  I primarily use my serger and dressmaker, but both can pretty much only go straight  XD  I need my home machine for zigzag stitches and whatnot. You can do everything with a home sewing machine, but it won't look as clean. I've slowly built up my sewing arsenal  XD
