MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 14 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #14, the “Chelsea of the Orange Marguerite”, a medium brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at


It’s 14 days ’til the Call to the Post for the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs!

After a long, hard winter, spring has finally arrived. Here on Cape Cod, daffodils have sprung up, the ospreys have returned and the air is filled with the sounds of red-wing blackbirds and robins. To celebrate the many sights and sounds of the season we are showcasing a vibrant “Chelsea” hat today that is full of color and amazing textures.


Our Chelsea features a foundation created out of a deep freesia yellow linen to which was added a large Marguerite fashioned out of tangerine orange organza for the petals. Orange organza mixed with orange satin form the rose curl center.


Wispy sprays of orange netting, an orange satin sash and a tangerine organza lining complete the hat. For the final touch a clear orange button was added to the back.


Bursting with spring-like color and bedazzling textures, the new “Chelsea” has the look of spring we all need. Let’s don our beautiful flower-trimmed chapeaux and get ready to celebrate the Kentucky Derby, the grandest harbinger of spring I know!
