Important Note on Etsy Orders:

To make up for the fees charged by Etsy, all dresses sold through their site will be $10 more than on the Little Petal website. We apologize for this inconvenience. Please purchase your dress through the Little Petal website to avoid the fee.

Turnaround Time:

I am currently a one woman shop, so please allow approximately ten to twelve weeks turnaround for all convertible dress orders.  I am known for often finishing dresses within two weeks, and happily accept rush orders if you are in prompt communication with me about your order. Occasionally based on work load, the turnaround is slightly longer, especially if it is surrounding a convention. If you need your dress by a specific date, please include that when purchasing your dress and sending measurements. If you would like to model a new design or pick your dress up in Manhattan, use coupon code PICKUP.

Shipping:

All US orders are shipped USPS priority mail 1-3 day delivery with tracking and insurance. Floor length dresses are $15 shipping, all other skirt styles are $12 shipping.

International dress orders are shipped by weight. If you live internationally and would like to check on the cost of shipping before purchasing, contact us. Sometimes the floor-length dresses end up weighing less than 4.01 pounds, which drastically changes the USPS shipping price on international first class mail. ($30 less than 4lbs, $45 over 4lbs for Canada; $40 less than 4lbs, $60 over 4lbs all other non-US countries). If you do not ask about shipping before ordering and your floor-length dress ends up weighing less 4lbs, you will be sent a voucher in the amount for a future order.

Pricing:

Dress prices will never be based on customer size. While larger sizes do use more yardage, the concept of charging more for plus size is not in line with our principles so whether you are petite or voluptuous the price is the same per design. All bodies are equal and beautiful.

The price is determined by how much yardage the design is the first time I make that specific dress and how time consuming the color blocking is to create. The dresses are a minimum of 5 yards of fabric with some having as many as 25 yards. Two color dresses or three color dresses that are not as complicated are $200. Dresses that are floor-length or require me to cut and stitch a rainbow are naturally more expensive. All prices are listed in the shop section.

If you would like to add pockets to your dress (which I highly recommend as do all of my customers who scream at me at conventions that "THEY CAN HAVE POCKETS") it is an additional $50 because I have to construct the skirts differently than when they do not have pockets. This option is available in the drop down menu of every dress. Reversible detachable hoods are now available for $50, or as a combination with pockets for $75.

Due to the cost of professional photography and the work that goes into designing a new character-based dress we charge a $25 fee for new designs.

Refunds:

All dresses are custom made to your measurements so we are unable to issue refunds unless your concern is the fault of Little Petal. The dress must be returned in unworn condition. Refunds will not be given based on fabric color unless you sent a swatch or requested one prior to construction. Refunds will not be given based on turnaround time unless we miss the date of the event that you asked for your dress by. You may change the character or colors of your dress all the way up until the fabric is bought. If you would like to make a change, please contact me at danielle@littlepetal.net ASAP. 

Custom colors:

If your convertible dresses are for a wedding, you MUST either send a color sample or request a fabric swatch if you need the color to be a perfect match and then, if you are satisfied with the color, immediately submit a deposit so I can purchase the fabric. Dye lots change from roll to roll, colors sell out, and new colors are created. If a perfect match is necessary, please respond quickly to emails so I can make sure I get it for you.

Thank you for your interest in Little Petal. I work every day towards my goal of building my customers' self esteem, one pretty dress at a time.
