I was searching on the net for regency portaits when I stumbled upon this very simple but very effective and useful pattern for a Regency cravat.


  1. Cut 1.5 yards white linen. Keep the selvage edge smooth.
  2. Fold in half lengthwise.
  3. Measure 10 inches on the fold and cut. This will give you an isosceles triangle, 55″ x 10″.
  4. Hand sew a narrow hem on the slanted edges – the selvage edge is already finished.
  5. Spray starch and iron.
