The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #54, the “Taylor”, a brand new Derby top hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
Several days ago I debuted the “Taylor” chapeau, a brand new Derby top hat design with a flat wired brim that can be shaped for different looks.
I fashioned the base of the hat out of white dupioni silk, adding a flat, wired brim.
For the trim centerpiece I fashioned a double bow out of the same pinstripe linen as the band and added a spray of black silk organza “feathers” for a dramatic accent.
For more views of the “Taylor” hat design shown above, please visit the Taylor Der186-002 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat #54 in our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 53 Derby chapeaux and 53 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
