Default HELP with pillowcase dress please

So I had my first attempt tonight with the pillowcase dress. I have a few questions. For those that use elastic for the neck do you sew the elastic all the way around, or do you do one side at a time and use two pieces of elastic? Also how do I determine how much elastic to use? Thanks so much!

I do two pieces of elastic and the tut I was working off of at first told me to do 6" each but that just seemed way long so I cut a little over an inch off each so about 4.5-5" and it fit my niece perfectly and she is an avg size 4 yr old.

I use two 6 inch pieces and attach the ribbon to the ends....I use that for all sizes without any issues.
