A question about writing patterns

Don't know how many still read here, but...

I was considering writing up the pattern for my "Filigree Skirt" that I designed for my mother, and I had a question for those of you who use patterns (or write them).

How do I do sizing for something like a full length skirt? Can I write a general direction, i.e. "measure from waist to ankle, chain until this length is reached, multiples of 11 are ideal but not required" (possibly with more detail)? Or do I need to break it down into "chain 150 for a skirt of 26 inches" for people to be able to follow it?
