The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #57, the “Cassandra”, a wide brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at maggiemae.com.
This year, I wanted to create a hat that would be versatile enough to wear on Kentucky Oaks Day and Kentucky Derby Day.
I began with a hat foundation created out of black dupioni silk in the classic Liza brim style.
For more views of the “Cassandra” hat design shown above, please visit the Cassandra Der198-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
