Introducing the Hooded Bolero!

Do you have one of our soft, comfortable boleros (or shrugs, as many people call them)? Have you ever found yourself saying “Wow, the only way this could be better is if it had a hood?” Well friends, we have good news for you…Hooded Bolero © 2018 Sakkara Clothing & Costume

That’s right! Pre-orders are open now for the Hooded Bolero. It’s made of the same soft but sturdy bamboo/organic cotton fabric as our regular bolero, with the addition of a deep hood. Currently available in sizes XS-3XL!

Benefits of a Hooded Bolero

-Perfect for those Pacific Northwest days when the weather can’t decide whether it wants to be cold or warm.

-For those of you living in hot climates, a nice layer for “winter” weather.

-Layer over your belly dance cover-up to hide your hair garden until it’s time to go onstage.

-Cute addition to “urban fusion” style belly dance costumes — get the look of a hoodie while still baring your belly to show off those isolations!

-Keep your arms and head warm in cold dance studios over the winter.

-Deep hood is great for channeling your inner Sith Lord.

Best of all, since it’s currently available on the website, you can order online rather than waiting until the next time you see us at a festival! Not only that, but you can use code PREORDERLOVE to receive free shipping, with no minimum purchase. These hooded boleros will start shipping on October 5th, which means you could even make them a part of your Halloween costume.

On a Completely Different Note…

Before you head off and order your own hooded bolero, we also wanted to remind you that we will be at Hexenfest! This is one of our favorite fall events. it is happening in beautiful Geyserville, CA, September 27-30.

Ruffle Pant Revival!

There’s just something about ruffles. They add depth and movement. They look great on stage.  They’re super fun to wear.  Obviously, we’re very pro-ruffle at Sakkara Clothing & Costume. 😉 We’re excited to announce that our Deluxe Ruffle Pant is back for a limited time!

We’re offering so many sizes and colors that we had to separate all that ruffly goodness into two listings. Between Deluxe Ruffle Pant and Deluxe Ruffle Pant – More Colors you will find seven gorgeous options. Want a custom color? Contact us to see if it’s possible!

Deluxe Ruffle Pants start with the same organic cotton and bamboo fabric you know and love. Then, they’re embellished with oodles of handcrafted ruffles. Did you know the ruffles come from past projects? Each pant is a little different as a result. The mix depends on what we’ve been up to! Needless to say, this is one of our favorite practices for keeping textiles out of landfills.

Not sure how to style them? Well, they look great on their own. We also love how they look with a short overskirt (if you’ve picked up one of our Velvet Ruffle Mini Skirts at a recent event, that would be a cute combination). You can even wear them under a full-length skirt. The ruffles give you extra volume and lift at the bottom. Add your favorite belt and costume bra, or a Corrie top, and you’re set!

Like all of our work, Deluxe Ruffle Pants are made to last. They will be a part of your wardrobe for years to come.

The Ruffle Pant Revival will only last as long as we still have ruffle making supplies, so don’t hesitate to order yours today!
