Default Most popular bow sizes you sell/make

What is the most popular bow sizes you sell or make? What width ribbon do you use most often? I had someone order some bows the size of one she had and it measured 4" with 1.5" wide ribbon. The bow was terribly made, so she wants me to start making all of her daughter's bows. Woohoo! She was very disappointed in the bow she showed me, but liked the style and size. I have tons of solid and polka dotted 3/8" and 7/8" wide ribbon. Let me know what is your most popular bow sizes and ribbon widths.

Thanks for your input!

3/8 and 7/8 solid ribbon are the 2 I can't keep enough in stock. This is a fairly conservative hair style area so moms buy bows that are proportionate to their kids heads.

I sell 7/8" toddler bows the most. The 3/8" and 1.5" are a very close second for me. Solid bows are the ones that sell the best for me.
