The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #25, the “Kristy” wide brim chapeau that is found in Derby Hat Salon 1 at maggiemae.com. We began our 2015 Derby hat countdown season with the “Hanalee” chapeau and we are looking forward to inspiring you all the way to the Derby, one day and one HAT at a time!
Today’s featured hat, the “Kristy”, was created as a custom design for Kristy Deyeso of New York, New York. Kristy and her husband John are devoted horse racing fans and Kristy needed a very special design for the Kentucky Oaks races to match her dress.
The result was this multi-layered chapeau in white dupioni silk with two white silk organza wavy brim layers.
I trimmed the front of the hat with a single hot pink taffeta rose curl to pull the hat to the dress and then framed it with black satin leaves and a double bow created out of black silk organza lined with hot pink taffeta.
To pull it all together I added a layer of black chenille ball hat veiling to cover the wavy organza brim layers and finally, a black satin sash to complete the look.
For more views and all the yummy details about the “Kristy” chapeau, please visit the Kristy hat webpage.
