MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 58 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #58, the “Joey”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at


For the foundation of the “Joey” design I began with a white dupioni silk base which I overlaid with alternating layers of white silk organza and turquoise tulle to create  a “petticoat” effect.


I trimmed the crown with a turquoise taffeta sash…


I adorned the front of the hat with a single delicate blue turquoise organza rose curl framed by a medley of matching taffeta and organza leaves.


For more views of the “Joey” hat design shown above, please visit the Joey Der156-001 webpage at

And don’t forget to visit our KY Derby Hat Collection offering four new Derby hat salons this year. Something for everyone from fascinators to extra wide brims!

Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 58 of our Derby Hat Countdown.

Just 57 Derby chapeaux and 57 days to go ’til the 140th Kentucky Derby!
