"FIGHTING THE PATRIARCHY, TWO POCKETS AT A TIME"
WHAT I DO
Little Petal creates geek chic convertible dresses and other garments inspired by any character from any fandom. This means customers are not limited to just our incredibly vast selection of already existing dresses. You can order any character concept, or any color combination! All dresses are available with reversible detachable hoods. And the skirt length on most dresses can be changed- floor-length is available on all listings.

MY MISSION
I create sneaky geeky dresses as opposed to costumes, so they can be worn to conventions as cosplay, to weddings as a bridesmaid dress, to work, on tour each night with your band, or anywhere in between. Little Petal strives to make all women and non-binary people feel included in a culture that was traditionally for cis men, so you can look as beautiful as you feel without sacrificing who you are. We believe representation matters so we ask our customers to model their own dresses and their photographs are always gorgeous. It is a powerful thing to actually be able to see yourself represented.

We are a body positive company that believes in LGBTQ+ equality and intersectional feminism. Women are not sized so all dresses are custom made to your measurements. Whether you are petite or voluptuous, these pajama-soft dresses will fit you perfectly so you can feel comfortable in your body and look just as amazing.

    The teal colour is absolutely fantastic and I cannot recommend this dress enough! The communication with the seller (Danielle) was always prompt and pleasant - I will definitely be getting another dress at some point.

    Beautifully constructed. I was worried the fabric may be a little thin or prone to wrinkling but the fabric stays smooth, breathable and quite durable. Very excited to wear this to cons and as a high-quality Halloween costume for years to come.

    GORGEOUS work, and it took a while for me to be able to get it done, and she was very patient with me. :-)

    What can I add that hasn't already been said? Excellent construction as always, and fabulous design. I love the silver tips on the straps, like arrowheads! :D That might be my favorite part. The color scheme looks very elegant, I can definitely wear it somewhere fancy and no one would even know I'm showing off my obsession! Unless they're equally obsessed. I'll look great and can find other Hawkeye fans, so much win!

    Long Story Short: Would Definitely Recommend Again and Again!
    I love that this was custom made and clearly very well crafted, the quality of the dress makes the price totally worth it since I will be able to wear this dress to the ends of the earth and back! The shop owner, Danielle, was amazingly helpful, she kept in contact with me about the dress and the progress, she made sure I knew of any offers she had to add on to the dress like Pockets, and as soon as I told her when I needed it she made sure to get it to me on time. She was very personable and fun to talk to. It is clear to me as the customer that she cares about me and she wants to make sure I get what I paid for, which I absolutely did. She was so friendly it felt like I was having a family member make the dress for me. Thanks so much Little Petal!

    I LOVE THIS DRESS I WILL WEAR IT FOREVER! Seriously though it's gorgeous and the design is exactly what I was picturing in my head. As always it is so so so so comfy and I would gladly buy enough of Danielle's dresses to wear them every day of my life (that's the dream). Also, the pockets are so great and I love it and every girl needs a Little Petal dress in their life.

About LittlePetalNYC

Sales 149
On Etsy since 2013

All I have ever wanted to do was to create something beautiful based on something I adore. Now I get to.

Little Petal creates custom convertible dresses and wedding dresses based on superheroes, villains, monsters, science fiction, cartoons, anime, video games, and whatever else your heart can dream up. We pay attention to every little detail to make sure that your dress is an accurate, but not overwhelming, representation of your inspiration. We use high quality fabric- only natural fibers (predominantly silk) for our wedding dresses, and rayon jersey for our convertible dresses. This ensures that they are soft, comfortable, breathable, and the best fitting garment that you own. We are not just a store that sells products. Every dress we sell is custom, and very important to us. We work with your concept to create your dream dress- and we love doing it.
