Blog-DerbyHatCountdownPoster-2015-38Hats-Web.LgOver 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.
