The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #97, the “Sallita”, a medium brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
This year I was pleased to see that Pantone had chosen “Glacier Gray”, a lovely soft silvery gray, 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.
In need of a new silver hat design to add to my Derby Salon 3 of medium brim hat styles, I decided to create a brand new “Sallita” chapeau for Derby day to showcase the “Glacier Gray”.
I began with a hat foundation created out of a silver dupioni silk with a classic Sallita brim style.
I fashioned a single large rose curl out of a mix of alternating layers of charcoal and black silk organza, framed it with a medley of black satin leaves and added a touch of black veiling which I shaped into a free form bow for behind the entire trim centerpiece. A medley of black sparkle buttons adorn the rose for just a dash of bling!
