The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!
Today we are featuring Hat #10, the “Brooklyn”, a brand new extra wide brim design found in Salon 2 of the Derby Hat Collection…
With our tough winter this year on the Cape, I have had a hankering for a wide brim hat with ruffles trimmed with pink and green tones to herald in the warmer days and new growth!
I got started by fashioning a 17-inch hat foundation in white dupioni silk, adding a white silk organza ruffled layer to the brim edge with a fancy braiding accent.
For the trim centerpiece I created a large Marguerite out of white silk organza petals with a rose curl created out of fuchsia chiffon and shantung for the center. I added a medley of bright green organza, taffeta and satin leaves to frame the Marguerite.
For more views of the “Brooklyn” hat design shown above, please visit the Brooklyn Der193-001 webpage at maggiemae.com.
Thank you for visiting us here at Hats and Horses for Hat 10 of our Derby Hat Countdown.
Just 9 Derby chapeaux and 9 days to go ’til the 141st Kentucky Derby!
