The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #86, the “Chelsea”, a medium brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
Last year I added several new linen hat designs to my Spring-Summer Hat Collection. My guiding theme was “Spring Gardens” and I wanted the collection to be filled to overflowing with bright floral colors and trim designs.
I began with a Chelsea style that I created out of a rich freesia yellow linen.
I trimmed the Chelsea with a multi-layered Marguerite created with deep orange and tangerine cotton petals and a deep yellow cotton rose curl center accented with a small red button. I framed the floral centerpiece with sage green linen leaves and tendrils.
For more views of the “Chelsea” hat design shown above, please visit the Chelsea SMM60-002 webpage at maggiemae.com.
