MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Derby Hat Countdown – 94 of 101

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

Today we are featuring Hat #94, the “Joey”, a wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at

The “Joey” has been a favorite among my customers ever since its introduction; it  makes a stunning Derby hat.

Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-94HatsFor 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.

Blog-JoeyDer156-001II 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.
