The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #63, the “Ava”, another brand new wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 2 at maggiemae.com.
I am also a big fan of polka dots. Over the years I have created many polka dot hats for customers – big dots, little dots, black on white dots, pink on brown dots, white on navy dots, black on red dots – every combination and size that you can possibly imagine!
To kick off the new 2015 Derby Hat Collection, I thought it might be fun to combine my passion for some of the old-time movie starlets with my passion for polka dots!
I got started by fashioning a 17-inch hat foundation in black and white polka dot fabric, adding a red silk organza ruffled layer to the outer brim edge for added drama and dimension.
For more views of the “Ava” hat design shown above, please visit the Ava Der191-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 63 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 62 Derby chapeaux and 62 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
