The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #38, the “Sallita”, a medium brim hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
Over the years I have created many polka dot hats for customers – big dots, little dots, black on white dots, pink on brown dots, white on navy dots, black on red dots – every combination and size that you can possibly imagine! There’s just something about polka dots that always seems to make everybody smile.
I recently created a new Derby “Sallita” hat design to celebrate the magic of polka dots.
I began with a hat foundation created out of white linen in the classic Sallita brim style.
For the trim centerpiece I created a rose curl out of chocolate organza, added chocolate taffeta “leaves” and white veiling for the perfect accents.
For more views of the Sallita chapeau please visit the Sallita Der6-042 webpage.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 38 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
