The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #46, the Billie Der116-003 top hat Derby design that is found in Salon 4 of the Derby Hat Collection at maggiemae.com.
The “Billie” was the very first mini top hat design that I ever created.
I began with a black dupioni silk hat foundation. For the trim centerpiece I fashioned a single large rose curl out of alternating layers of deep garnet red metallic taffeta and black silk organza.
For more views of the “Billie” hat design please visit the Billie hat webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 46 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 45 Derby chapeaux and 45 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
