Default Common Measurements?

Does anyone care to share what their common measurements are for their bows? i.e. For a 2 1/2 bow, they would cut X, Y, and Z lengths

I find that I really need to standardize how I cut things. For 4 loop bows, I do a lot of 20 inch lengths. Many times, I'm probably just making up numbers, based on how I feel at the moment. LOL

The following are my standard length/measurements:
X-Small -- 2 1/2" bow 18" of 7/8"
Small -- 3 1/2 21" of 7/8
Medium -- 3 1/2 23 1/2" pf 1 1/2"
Large ----4 1/2 28" of 1 1/2"
x-Large---5 1/2" 34.5" of 1 1/2"
Big Bow---6 1/2-7" 36" of 2 1/4"

IF all of that makes sense.

I would love to compare my notes with others. Please share!!

Is this for a boutique bow or pinwheel? I have noticed that both designs are pretty close to same measurements.
