The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #88, the “Sallita”, a medium brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
Last year during Royal Ascot season a woman named Grace came to me for a hat. Grace wondered if I could create a “Sallita” design hat using the “pinwheel” fleur trim from one of my silk “Lizzie” designs.
I got to work on a hat foundation created out of a red linen in the classic Sallita brim style.
Grace called a few weeks later to tell me how much everyone loved her new Sallita design at Ascot. And this brand new “Sallita” is now ready for her Derby debut at this year’s Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs!
For more views of the “Sallita” hat design shown above, please visit the Sallita SMM6-039 webpage at maggiemae.com.
