WWYD...add more, or leave them as is?

So I completed my first ever pair of overalls (YAY!!)

They turned out great, I avoided pooling of colors, Added button holes in the cuffs, but now that they are done, the JUST fit. I swore I measured properly :/
Anyways, I still have some colorway remaining...should I bother to undo the cuffs and add to them, or should I just leave them be, or wait until they really don't fit and add more then.


(I still have to block the straps...I can probably get a little extra if I fold the straps longer)

Re: WWYD...add more, or leave them as is?

they look fine to me so I would leave them and add later. I tried adding extra length right at the beginning for a few pairs and they didnt get as much use bc it was aggravating. They always came uncuffed and dirt and stuff got stuck up in the fold.

Add later, I have a few pairs that are a little to long and he is constantly tripping on them! I always reach for the ones that *just* fit :-)

You did a great job!! And I am the odd man out, I say add. lol. If they aren't a bit long, I feel like they are too short.

Re: WWYD...add more, or leave them as is?

oh gosh, they really are so close. I would try to add a little bit to the bib if you can. They look great though. Did you buy the yarn from spots? I think you may have bought it from me if it's cestari.

Re: WWYD...add more, or leave them as is?

Wait and add later. Like a pp said, I hated cuffing too long longies and never get as much use out of ones that I need to cuff. They're perfect now and really, they could be perfect for a while before you end up needing to add length.
