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 for the sudden upload spam  XD  I was going through my Facebook and realized that there were a ton of design I haven't put on deviantART  XD  My bad! I mostly updated with printed designs, but I have a couple of kimono dresses and pinafores that I'll be finishing in the next week or so.

Also, it's time to start brainstorming some ideas for the Darling Army Art Contest! The prizes will include up to $85 store credit and will have the same rules as last time. I'm not accepting submissions or posting the official rules for another month or so, but I wanted to give you a heads up!

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!

Hey Amanda, I just got my Sting cosplay pintafore in the mail and I LOVE it! It's perfect and cute, and I can't wait to wear it for my Halloween costume and conventions. Thank you SO much!

YAY! Aren't the colors fun? Even my husband commented on them when he stopped by my sewing room. He instantly knew it was a commission since I don't often work with those combos

Holy crap!  You have so many cute designs!  If i had the money, I'd buy all the gaming ones, and maybe even the Teen Titans ones.  >w<

Hehe. Thank you very much! I was looking through my gallery and realized I don't have my Beast Boy or Starfire posted  XD  I'll have to take some pictures the next time they're commissioned

Question. What is your go to fabric material? I'm just getting into making things so I don't know enough about fabric to know the name of the best materials to make clothes out of. Thanks! Your work is truly amazing. ^_^ Have a great day! 
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
In general I prefer to work with polycotton blends and cotton. Apparel fabric (knits) is usually the best for making casual clothing, but those can be a pain in the butt to work with if you don't cut on the bias
MagicalWigWitch Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2015  New Deviant Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks! Those are the stretchier fabrics right? 
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Knit fabrics are usually stretchy

Omg your stuff is amazing! Do you make this yourself? These are awesome, i'm so obsessed, your kimonos are so adorable!! I want to buy from you someday ; v ;
DarlingArmy Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hehe. Thank you so much! I make all of the pinafores, skirts, and kimono dresses myself  =3  The new printed items (dresses and tights) are things I have designed, but have them printed somewhere else since I don't have the equipment to do it in my house  XD
