Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-47Hats-Web.LgSeveral years ago, I created my very first “Corinne” Derby hat.


This year I was dying to create a brand new Corinne style using a new rose curl trim in shades of aqua and turquoise.

I created the foundation out of a white dupioni silk and set it to the side to begin the trims.  I then created a rose curl out of alternating layers of aqua taffeta and organza and framed it with matching taffeta leaves. For the final trim touch I added organza “bow loops” to really make the centerpiece pop!
