One Design, 8 Ways to wear. Our innovative Chrysalis Cardi in Maxi size.

The Chrysalis Cardi is a wardrobe staple. The versatile Cardi can be styled 8+ ways. From a cozy cocoon cardi, to a chic grecian tunic, a glamorous one-shoulder gown, to a poncho and a classic infinity scarf.

The secret is the hand-sewn snaps hidden along the hemline that hold the looks together. Unlike traditional multi-way garments, our designs do not require pinning, tying, or elastics to hold the looks together. Effortlessly transform.

        • Made from 95% Lenzing Modal® | 5% Spandex.
          1. Made from our buttery-soft Lenzing Modal® blend fabric. Modal is a naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal yarn is created through an environmentally-conscious process in which 95% of production materials are recovered. Modal has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The fabric is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means they are free of harmful chemicals. Learn about our fabrics.
          2. The Chrysalis Cardi comes with a belt, made from the same fabric, and full-colour lookbook with diagrams. Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and and recyclable.
        • We recommend that you hand wash the Chrysalis Cardi. Hang to dry.

          You may put the Chrysalis Cardi (with snaps undone) in a mesh garment bag in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. Do not put in the dryer. 
        • Fit Advice: Perfect for women of any height from sizes (M-XXL) or those with a broader frame in the hips or chest. The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks. View the size chart.

Great quality fabric, clever design

The fabric is very luxurious and the design is clever. I did not realize that the snaps would be so visible on the shoulders of both the wrap and Grecian dress options, which was a bit disappointing because I was hoping to wear it to a Christmas party. I do think this piece would be amazing for travel though and I love the colour and quality of fabric. The instructions booklet is not very clear but the videos online are excellent. I chose the maxi size (5’4” & 195lb) and it fits well to wrap around but it is much too long at mid-calf.

Much too big

I ordered the maxi based on the size chart as I am 5'4 and 185 lbs. It was way too big. So I have returned it and ordered the medium which fits perfectly.
I am also not pleased with the fact that I was charged return shipping. When purchasing a high dollar item such as this and the fact that I was exchanging not straight returning, it seems like the company is penny pinching to charge return shipping. Especially for a company that only has one physical store.

Just a big piece of expensive fabric .

Takes a lot of adjusting to make it look decent. Could do the same with any piece of fabric. The shoulders on the dress slide off constantly and need safety pins to secure inplace. The cardi look is good for the office but not practical for moving around too much w kids or doing eerands. I would not recommend this product. The one thing that i was impressed with wad the hight quality and weight of the soft fabric.

Almost perfect

It’s so soft and such a fun piece. I found it easy to make most styles work and I really enjoy the looks when they are oversized/without the belt. I’ve traveled with it and used it on the plane as a blanket. My only issue is that I can’t sew even a little so I had to ask a friend to reinforce the snaps for me. More than half were already coming up when I received the cardi.
