The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #24, back by popular demand – the Chelsea of the Black and White Polka Dots! This hat can be found in Salon 3 of the Derby Hat Collection at maggiemae.com.
Many of my customers tell me they consider the Chelsea their favorite hat; the brim is not too big, the crown is not too tall and everything about her feels just right. I often hear the words, “She’s perfect!”
A couple of years ago, I wanted to create a new Chelsea style with one of my favorite things: polka dots. Large dots, small dots, white dots, red dots, any-color-dots; polka dots make me smile!
I found the perfect black and white cotton for the Chelsea with a medium sized dot.

Just 23 Derby chapeaux and 23 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
