Welcome to A Derby Hat Countdown featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #2, the “Vivy Der155-002” design that is found in the Derby Hat Salon 2 at maggiemae.com.
I began with a black dupioni silk hat foundation that measured close to 18″ at the brim.
For a drama boost I fashioned several pink organza “feathers” to accent the rose and spill over the brim edge.
And as I stood back I realize that my new “Vivy” was everything I had hoped she would be. Aside from the Derby and Oaks races, I think this Lady is destined to make quite the splash at tea parties, garden parties and Royal Ascot!
For more views and details about the “Vivy” chapeau shown above, please visit the Vivy Der155 -002 webpage at maggiemae.com.
And don’t forget to visit our Derby Hat Collection offering four new Derby hat salons this year. Something for everyone from fascinators to extra wide brims!
