Black velvet top and skirt. White squares are attached to the skirt in two rows (first, I planned three but there was no space for more). Their size was calculated accordingly to fit an even number of squares along the hem. The top row is a little bit smaller because the skirt is more narrow there. A few contrasting chess figures are applied to some squares.
The collar and sleeves are decorated with a broad white lace with golden trim. A large golden crown is cut from some fine shiny fabric and attached to the front. We already had a golden crown for the head and a black cape.
