MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 72 of 101

The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!

Today we are featuring Hat #72, the “Chelsea” medium brim design decked out in one of Pantone’s colors for Spring, a scrumptious yellow called “Freesia”! Pantone, known world-wide for their color matching system, is closely watched by the fashion industry for their choices of the most popular colors for the current season.


I fashioned the base of the hat out of freesia yellow linen. I then created a large Marguerite fleur using black silk organza for the petals and red silk organza for the rose curl center.


A black polka dot sash surrounds the crown, a touch of black veiling accents the rose,  and a single red button adorns the back seam of the hat. This splendid new Chelsea is ready for the mint juleps and Millionaire’s Row at Churchill Downs!
