One Design, 8 Ways to wear. Our innovative Chrysalis Cardi in size Petite/Small.

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 (XS-M).  The design will also work on women larger than this size but who just prefer a shorter silhouette when styled as the dress looks. View the size chart.

Perfect carryon outfit

One problem. It relies to heavily on the snaps and one of mine came loose

I like the idea.

I really like the idea of the Chrysallis Cardi since I travel a lot, but it is taking me a while to get used to the amount of fabric (I ordered the petit). At first, I thought I wouldn't keep it because it seemed so big, but I have found that I really like the dresses (they are super easy to do) and the idea of the wrap skirt(can you put this up on the how to wear page?). I must say that I have trouble doing the tunic style and I find it really constricting when I do try so I don't know that I will wear it like that. Overall, I am pleased with the colour and feel of the fabric, and I am looking forward to seeing how versatile it is on my next trip!

Love it more than expected

This piece exceeded my expectations in every way. It's soft, buttery texture is delightful to the touch. It is quite simple to create all the looks. I've even worn it as a dress to dinner and then switched it to a cardi with my after dinner outfit. I love it!

Wanted to love this...

I bought this for my upcoming travel to Niagara, (I am from New Brunswick) and we drive so I wanted to minimize our load of stuff. The instructions are really hard to follow, and half the styles I haven't figured out. So I can wear it as a really expensive scarf, or a dress. As for the shirts, none of those styles have been figured out yet... And the Cardi shows the tag on the outside, and even after adjustment it doesn't want to be hidden. I have short hair so that look does not work for me at all, it just looks like I have an inside out piece of clothing on. It has potential, and won't stop me from buying other multi-way clothing in the future, but am sadly disappointed so far with this piece. More videos are needed, and not the silent ones that show you, they need to really enforce the talking instructions.
