Default Length of elastic

I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer to this. Is it pretty standard to measure your elastic or stretch lace one inch smaller than the person's head measurement? Just wanted to verify that.

Also, is there a list somewhere out there that shows the 'standard' length of elastic that should be used for infants, children, adults, etc. What about garters?

Thanks!!

EDIT: Nevermind - found my answer! It's definitely the measurement minus 1.5 inches.

I was looking at a tutorial and she said she subtracts 1-1/2 inch from the person's head measurement. Is that what you all typically do?

Thanks
