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% Modal | 5% Spandex.
          1. Made from our buttery-soft Modal blend fabric. Modal is a renewably sourced, naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp. Modal yarn is created through a closed-loop process in which nothing is re-released back in the environment during it's creation. It has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The dyes are 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.

AMAZING!

I wasn't sure about The Chrysalis Cardi Maxi at first. I've worn it 4 different ways and people are amazed when I say, "This dress is the cardigan I wore last week."
The usual response is, "How is that possible?". Then I explain, let them feel the fabric and tell them where they can get theirs.

Be wary of deodorant marks

Love how this can be worn different ways to cut down on packing. My favorite is the X-back halter and the cocoon cardi, my friend was amazed that I was able to wear it again on a weekend getaway. Just be careful to find all the deodorant marks when you switch out the style. ;-)

staple piece for 3-season wardrobe

Spring, summer, or fall, I'm constantly wearing this piece and looking forward to buying another in a different color. The only downside is having to resecure the snaps with thread of my own, but that's no problem considering how much mileage I get out it.

Great fabric, but hard to follow directions for use

I bought this for a trip where I would need to wear a scarf/head covering and it was perfectly suited for this type of fashion conversion. However, I could not figure out how to fold and snap the other options provided in the information packet. It appeared that instructions were out of order when I compared them to the youtube videos online. Also, other people's videos not associated with Encircled were much easier to follow than the videos provided from the website itself, it's like the fan videos showed more of the steps involved while the company provided videos glossed over the key steps required. Again, it was perfect for use as a scarf that I could quickly wrap over my head to cover my hair, but was very difficult to use otherwise.

Chrysalis

I loved the feel of the fabric, color (burgundy) and fit, not so much. The snaps kept coming undone (could be embarrassing) and I really couldn’t get a flattering fit. It may look good on very thin people, but not on me. I was able to return easily. I’d still like to try the CC just for all the options available with it, but probably won’t for the same reason as mentioned in the reviews. Love the company and have their short sleeved Revolve dress and just love it.
