Where possible, please place your order in plenty of time ahead of our cutoff dates in order to ensure timely delivery.

I love the versatility of this cardi. It's so very soft! Can't wait to wear it all the ways for vacation!
The Chrysalis cardigan is a super versatile travel piece and I love that it has so many options! It’s very soft fabric and the color (I got the royal blue) is beautiful and vivid.
However, the instructions for creating the different styles are vague which makes the learning curve steep and the initial frustration level a bit high. The snaps seem to be attached in a fairly flimsy manner so I will be reinforcing those before relying on this piece for travel. I would also be likely to wear it even more if the piece was machine washable but I knew that limitation existed before I made the purchase so it is what it is.
Love the idea and it definitely has potential, but the snaps needed to transform into certain styles, started to detach just while I was trying it on.
Overall this is a good piece of clothing but there are some cons. For size I am 195lbs 5'6. Not chesty but broad/muscular shoulders, legs, and hips from weighting. I got the maxi size but could also probably have done the regular size. There's definitely enough fabric the dress styles go past my knees more like mid calf but I'm okay that it will be nice when traveling to more conservative places. I may eventually order the regular size also to have one that's a little more fitted.
-frabric is super soft and nice. Like the frabric of your dreams soft.
-it is a very versatile piece and you can tell it's well thought out
-I have found a couple of other styles to wear it in that aren't in the instructions
-small substainable company with good customer service
-snaps are weak I've worn it once and two snaps are halfway fallen off. I know how to sew so not a huge deal to me as I will just reinforce the snaps
-price is definitely a little steep
-written instructions and online videos are not super helpful. I wish the online videos had talking instructions rather than just music.
Overall I would buy this again though.
After deciding to become more minimalist this has become one of the single most important pieces in my wardrobe. I was initially skeptical because of the price tag but the quality warrants the price. The material is soft, durable, yet breathable. The only complaint would be the booklet of instruction was a little easier to follow. The black material makes it difficult to read. I know I'm going to use the chrysalis cardi so much that I'm going to learn all the options quickly enough. I highly recommend this to anyone for traveling or just being a minimalist.
