Trim as you would like, you can use ribbon for ties.
I made my own ties. I CH 35 attach ot the neck on top of the right side, SC down the side to the waist, CH 35, end off. Knot ends on the tie making sure to hold yarn with CH tie your knot then cut excess ending yarn off. Do the other side the same way starting at waist working up side to the neck.
Embellish as you would like.
