The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #52, the “Sydney”, another brand new wide brim Derby chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at maggiemae.com.
I got started by fashioning a Liza hat foundation in cream dupioni silk.
I then took white dupioni silk, white silk organza and a soft pink organza and handcrafted a large rose curl, adding dusty sage organza ribbons for leaves.
And the new “Sydney” chapeau is now ready to make her debut in the Derby Hat Collection! The “Sydney” is the perfect choice not only for Churchill Downs but for weddings, teas, Royal Ascot, Melbourne Cup and beyond.
For more views of the “Sydney” hat design shown above, please visit the Sydney Der197-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 52 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 51 Derby chapeaux and 51 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
