Fasten off

Turn down corner of collar in front and secure with a small stitch. Sew a snap at back of neck edge.

For effect, you can make a bolo-tie by making a chain of at least 40 and fasten off at end. Secure ends with a little glue and use a 1/4" shank button as the slide. You would want to do this prior to securing the collar corners.
