I love how versatile this dress is. Also, it's the only dress that comes in petite. I tried other encircled dresses and none work if your petite. Would love to see more dress in petite sizing, I and others have asked for years, still nothing except the chrysalis cardi. I also love how more colors came out for this item. Would love to see this in the color Scarlet Red.
I am so impressed with the customer service. My first delivery was lost, after not receiving, they quickly answered my emails and sent a new shipment. It was a pleasure dealing with them. So far I am loving the material of the Chrysalis cardi. I am locking forward to use it different ways at home and when I travel.
Love this! I have enjoyed my grey medium one for years, but this maxi is even better and I love the cinnamon colour!
I bought this but when trying the different ways to wear it the snaps broke. I have been trying to return the order and customer service has not sent me the return label yet. It is getting frustrating. I order multiple items with the hope that if I did not like, I could return it. Still waiting for the return label..

Chrysalis Cardi FAQs
What size should I choose?
Check our size chart. If you're in between sizes, size up!
What does the fabric feel like?
The modal fabric is super soft, drapey and stretchy. It feels like a worn-in t-shirt but dressy! We use a certified blend of Modal that's sustainable sourced and free of harmful chemicals.
Why is the Chrysalis Cardi so expensive?
At Encircled, we believe in investing in quality over quantity in your wardrobe. The Chrysalis Cardi is just that. The fabric is sustainably-sourced and certified by OEKO-TEX 100 Standard. The Chrysalis Cardi also features hand-sewn snaps which is a very difficult and time-consuming process to apply. This makes it harder to see the snaps when wearing. The Cardi is also incredibly well-made by fairly paid sewing teams who are local to Encircled. We're proudly 100% made in Toronto, Canada. Lastly, the Chrysalis Cardi will replace at least 5+ pieces in your travel wardrobe, so if you think of the cost per wear, it will seem like an amazing value.
Does the belt come with the Chrysalis Cardi?
Yes, we include a belt made from the same fabric as the Chrysalis cardi. It's long enough to wrap and tie easily. Feel free to use it or replace it with your fav stylish belt for a different look!
How long is the Chrysalis Cardi?
Check out the size chart! Generally, it will hit at the knee length for all dress options.
How do I care for my Chyrsalis Cardi?
We recommend gentle wash, cold water with an eco-friendly, mild and fragrance-free detergent. Hang to dry. If they wrinkle, we recommend using a steamer, or an iron between a towel. If possible, put the Cardi in a lingerie or wash bag and undo snaps before washing.
How can I figure out how to wear all the looks?
The Chrysalis Cardi comes with an instruction booklet. We also have detailed videos on how to do each look here.
