Tieing A Cravat

Oddly enough, this question concerns not a historical cosplay, but a video game cosplay. However, I think this particular part of it is more in the expertise of this forum.

You see, I wish to cosplay Miles Edgeworth from the Ace Attorney games:


As you can see, his cravat hangs down in three layers, so your standard cravat tutorial isn't much help with it. I've seen tutorials on how to fake this, but I wanted to see if there's a good way to tie a cravat like this.

Any ideas?

That's not a cravat, it's a jabot--which means it's not the result of a knot, it's just a mass of ruffles attached to a neckband. Don't kill yourself trying to tie this, it probably could be done but wouldn't be historically accurate* or necessary.
