The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #26, the Chelsea Der60-026 hat design that is found in Derby Hat Salon 3 at maggiemae.com.
One of my favorite things are polka dots and last season I created a Chelsea design for the Derby out of a polka dot fabric that I simply loved. By mixing the polka dot fabric with red silk in celebration of the Run for the Roses, the result was pure MAGIC!
I took my beloved black and white medium polka dot fabric to create the foundation for the Chelsea. I then took hot pink taffeta to create a dazzling underbrim for contrast and a bit of a color surprise when the wearer’s face is upturned.
Like her Derby-inspired sister, this new polka dot Chelsea is another magical polka dot surprise for anyone who loves these animated little spots as much as I do. Chelsea is ready for the 141st running of the Kentucky Oaks!
