MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 62 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #62, “Liza Der13-116”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at


A lady named Vivian approached me this Derby season for a stylish wide brim Kentucky Oaks style that would combine her two favorite colors: pink and purple. Vivian had already found the dress and all she needed was the perfect chapeau to top it off!

Being a fan of pink and purple myself, I created a “Liza” style hat in white dupioni silk and trimmed it with a deep purple taffeta sash.


I fashioned a single large purple silk organza rose curl with matching button which I set into a bed of variegated purple taffeta and satin leaves.


Finally I swirled layers of dusty lavender tulle around the crown.


When Vivian received her hat she exclaimed that her new Liza was indeed THE perfect chapeau for her Kentucky Oaks adventure!
