MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 21 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #21, the “Chris”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at


Yellow and springtime are a perfect match. This year I was so pleased to see that Pantone had chosen “Freesia”, a scrumptious yellow, as one of the “in” colors for the season. Pantone is known world-wide for their color matching system and is closely watched by the fashion industry for their color choices.

Although Chris has been part of my Derby collection for a few seasons, having Pantone choose her yellow as “in” inspired me to highlight her once again. The Chris is created out of a sumptuous freesia yellow linen and features wavy lemon organza brim layers.  She measures nearly 18″ at the brim with a single rose centerpiece fashioned out of soft lemon organza that is framed with lemon satin leaves.



A lemon satin sash encircles the crown for a look that is soft and elegant.
