Tablecloths should be long enough to drape over the edge of the table. How much the tablecloth should hang over the edge, however, depends on the style you want (more formal tablecloths tend to be longer than casual tablecloths) and the type of table you have. You may want to shorten a tablecloth to make sure your guests don't have too much tablecloth in their laps, or to make it hang evenly around all the sides of the table. Since the thread you use when you shorten the tablecloth will show, make sure to use thread that matches the tablecloth as closely as possible.
One of the most common issues faced by people looking to buy any product in this area and certainly a regular question I am asked a lot of is what material to use. Here's what I personally would suggest you need to go something is personal to you, the look and feel you want to create. Not some generic advice that doesn't work as a one size fits all - not not at all. You need to go for something that is durable, long lasting, machine washable (because the bill for cleaning say a silk tablecloth is way to expensive for the average house hold) and feels good to touch. Therefore, in my mind and my humble and honest opinion you are looking at one or two possible options with one or two variations on this theme, it has to be a cotton or cotton-polyester substitute.
