The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #40, the wide brim “Liza” chapeau that is found in Salon 1 of the Derby Hat Collection at maggiemae.com.
To kick off the new 2015 Derby Hat Collection, I thought it might be fun to create a Liza that featured one of my favorite color combinations: black and deep, rich CORAL!
I got started by fashioning a Liza hat foundation in black dupioni silk.
Next, I created a sash out of coral shantung, laid it around the crown and added a cluster of matching clear coral buttons for the final accent on the back.
And our new “Liza” chapeau makes her debut in the Derby Hat Collection today! The perfect choice not only for Churchill Downs but for weddings, teas, Royal Ascot and beyond.
For more views of the “Liza” hat design shown above, please visit the Liza Der13-123 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 40 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 39 Derby chapeaux and 39 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
