The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #50, the “Brooklyn”, a brand new extra wide brim design found in Salon 2 of the Derby Hat Collection…
Among the new ones is a ruffle brimmed chapeaux for the Kentucky Oaks.
I got started by fashioning a 17-inch hat foundation in white dupioni silk, adding a white silk organza ruffled layer to the brim edge with a fancy braiding accent.
For the trim centerpiece I created a large Marguerite out of white silk organza petals with a rose curl created out of fuchsia chiffon and shantung for the center. I added a medley of bright green organza, taffeta and satin leaves to frame the Marguerite.
For more views of the “Brooklyn” hat design shown above, please visit the Brooklyn Der193-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 50 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 49 Derby chapeaux and 49 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
