You know how much I love a good Kentucky Derby hat! Every year I submit a hat to the Kentucky Derby Museum’s annual contest. This year’s entry is hand blocked with a hand-sewn silk band around the brim edge.I made the polka-dot sinamay extensions the same way, attached them to the crown, and topped it all off with an oversize rose and hand-cut red feathers.
If selected, the hat will be on display in the museum for a year. I have been fortunate to have had a hat selected for display each of the past four years. Here’s this year’s entry…wish me luck!
