🍃 The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

Modal is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.

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. The Chrysalis Cardi is also available in size Medium and Maxi.

Wish I had another color

This is my second - the first I purchased was the medium which I think is a dressier length, and I defo wanted something a bit shorter. Sadly by the time I got around to it, all of the color choices were gone, so good ol' standard black it is. It's definitely cute and fun, though some of the looks are a lot harder than they look or sound. Will take some time to get used to and find my own style, but I love the idea of so many looks in one.

Fun, Flowy, Fashion! Absolutely Beautiful!

Great quality and versatile piece! Highly recommend. Customize to suit your personality, or occasion. Dress up, dress down. Beautiful fabric. Love it! Thank you!

So soft

It’s a brilliant idea. The material is high quality and it is so flattering to the body in all different ways it can be worn in.

Perfect travel item

I was looking for a small cardi and a dress made of bamboo fabric, so I loved the concept at first sight. Now this item also turns into a poncho, a scarf, 3 different dresses and more! It will be my go-to item for light travel and for day-to-day summer wear. I recommend this to anyone, especially those looking for a capsule wardrobe!
I am 165cm tall and usually wear SX-M tops, the petite is perfect!!!

It is so lovely!! Thank you so much for your review and showing a few of your styles! We are so happy to hear how much you are loving it!
