Default Ribbon lengths for woven headbands

I always seem to end up with way too much ribbon at the end, use it for lining clips etc but would like to not have quite so much. Does anyone have a chart I could copy for the lengths needed for 4 ribbon weaves? (like x inches for each ribbon for y size) Im looking for everything from 1/2" and up, plus the doll size headbands. Im totally winging it and not doing a good job!
I did a search and came up with about 10 different responses for 1/2" headbands and I think two comments about lengths for 1" (both different). Was wondering if anyone has a tried and true chart?!?

My instructions say 27" for a 1/2" woven and 36" for a 1' woven. I still have some leftover though. HTH

I have not made any of the doll size Headbands, but this is the chart I use for the regular HB'S using 3/8" ribbon:
27" for the 1/2" hb
37" for the 1" hb
48" for the 1.5" hb
55" for the 2" hb
Hope this helps!
