I'm making some steampunk plushies for a friend based off a certain band, and the costume I'm trying to make has this weird neck ruffle thing that I can't really search for tips on how to make because I have no idea what it is. If you know what it's called or even better, have any clue how to make one I would seriously appreciate your help! If all else fails I'll just gather up some material, but I'm hoping to make it as authentic as possible.  Cheesy

It looks to me to be a sort of bow-tie (i.e. just fabric right under the chin).  I think it would work to take a long piece of fabric and fold it like an accordion, then gather it in the middle.  You can attach it with a button, pin or elastic around the neck.
May the Ghost Squid be with you.

It might be a very short jabot.


But really it just looks like a length of fabric gathered up the middle.   Smiley

Yeah, I'd say it's a cravat - it's too short to be considered a jabot. It was the precursor to the bow tie and was basically a wide strip of linen that could be pleated and tied in all sorts of ways. If you're doing it on a plush scale, you might want to just pleat up a rectangle of fabric and have done with it Smiley

Thanks guys! I figured it'd be something simple, but my brain (as usual) was trying to overcomplicate it! lol.
