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

The Chrysalis Cardi is a travel and wardrobe must-have. 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 (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.

    I wanted to like it

    Even though I used the size chart it didn't seem to fit?? The only way it would work was as a scarf. I watched the youtube videos and nothing worked out at all. I felt so dumb about it I just returned it. Never had a product make me feel so stupid.

    Beautiful but didn't fit my style

    Let me start off by saying the quality of this item was simply amazing. The fabric was deliciously soft and comfortable to wear. However, when I tried it on with my accessories and other items, it ended up not meshing with my style so I returned it. If you enjoy a looser, more flowing garment, this piece is definitely for you. I found the guides to the different options easy to follow and wear as well.

    Awesome - but a little worried about the snap quality

    I ordered the petite and for most of the styles it fits perfectly. One of them is a little tight, but it shouldn't be a problem. After two wears, though, one of the snaps is already losing some thread and I'll have to reinforce it before it falls off. Otherwise I'm seriously considering ordering another just to have.

    Thank you for your feedback! I am so sorry to hear about the issues with your snaps, we will have our customer love contact you with options to fix the item!

    Cute and flexible

    I think I love this flexible piece of clothing. It took me a while to figure it out. I got the smaller one because I didn't want it to look like a sack on me. The smaller size is great for wearing as a dress. But as the cardi it seems a bit small to be useful. Planning to take it on a trip to Europe in the fall and look forward to wearing several different ways.
