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 so much for the silence and lack of updates! I set aside some time to work on planning/running errands for my upcoming wedding and there was way more to do than I originally thought  XD  Next to engagement shoots, decorating, and planning entertainment, I've barely had time to breathe. I thing I have a good amount of stuff done now, though, so I can work on a couple things Darling Army related <3

Look forward to some updates, new designs, and sneak peaks. Here's hoping wedding stuff doesn't take all of my time again. Two weeks to go!

Here's a little bit to tide you over if you don't follow me on Facebook or Instagram. It's one of my engagement shoot outfits (we had the pictures done at Disneyland). I'll post actual pictures when I get them back since I made two of my outfits for the shoot!

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!
