The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #59, the “Jazzmine”, a brand new wide brim Derby hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 2 at maggiemae.com.
Now it was time for something truly grand! I had my sights on a black and white wide brim chapeau that would make a real splash for the 141st Run for the Roses.
I got started by fashioning a 17-inch hat foundation in white dupioni silk.
For something truly different, I created a white silk organza ruffled layer and set it aside. Next I fashioned thin strips of black dupioni silk and top stitched them to the white ruffled brim layer. Adding the ruffled layer to the outer brim edge really gave it some major drama and dimension.
For the trim centerpiece I created a large Marguerite out of white silk organza petals with a small black silk organza rose curl for the center. Next I took black silk organza and fashioned enormous “leaves” with wired edges to frame the Marguerite.
I am now pleased to present the new “Jazzmine” chapeau, ready for her Red Carpet debut at the 141st Run for the Roses at Churchill Downs. For me, the “Jazzmine” includes everything that is traditional and elegant about the wide brim chapeaux of Derby Day…
And all that JAZZ!
