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.

Love that it’s versatile

I haven’t worn it yet. I tried to do the cocoon cardi, but it didn’t really fit the way I thought it would. I’ll likely try again, though. I’m hopeful that I’ll get use out it in the summer, as a dress.🤞

Versatile, Cosy, Soft

I love it. This is my second one. It is a must in any travel wardrobe. I wear it as a scarf when traveling so that I have a dress on-hand to wear without needing an extra change of clothes in my carry on. My most common format is to wear it as the cocoon cardi for regular work days. With 2 of them, the possibilities are almost endless!

Questioning the workmanship

I was excited to receive my cardigan. The colour and fabric were very nice. It took some doing to figure out some of the options. Unfortunately the first day I wore this product [as the Grecian style dress] I noticed one of the snaps was coming undone. This makes me worry that this product will not hold up to every day wear.

So far I love it
