One Design, 8 Ways to wear. Our innovative Chrysalis Cardi in our most popular size - Medium/Regular.

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 (S-XL).  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.

So soft

I think it took me 2 years to finally bite the bullet and order one. I was scared I wouldn't get a lot of use out of it and I try to stick to a minimalist wardrobe. So far I have worn it numerous times as a scarf and once as the cocoon Cardi. I had trouble understanding the directions for the Cardi even though it is considered easy. I bought it to make dresses in the summer and those are easier to achieve. I bought the burgundy color and the color is gorgeous.

Very travel conscious!

Very helpful. Took a couple attempts to get some of the configurations but once you have it, you can see how it will make travel more convenient.

I'm enjoying my chrysalis so far - I love the flexibility to switch from scarf to sweater mid-day, and I think this will be perfect to travel with! The fabric is so soft.

Beautiful colour Great fabric

I love my Cardi, It is beautiful and I love its many uses. I am incredibly disappointed by the fact that it was necessary for me to reattach one of the snaps after the first wear. This caused me to reinforce every snap. That is why this product has not received 5 stars

Good resort vacation piece

The fabric is incredibly comfortable and the dress options drape nicely, even with curves. The snaps do dig in a little at my shoulders with dresses. The cardigan design is cute but even with a lot of extra fabric at the back, feels a bit constricting on the arms. Final thought: as a vacation piece to a warm climate, this is totally worth it. As a regular day to day piece, it’s just ok.
