Baby cable leggings

Hi all! I am dying to make this for my son, but hate the idea of a set length strap. Could anyone restructure the pattern for me to add a simple button on one side like a typical dungaree so that I can adjust the length as needed? With these being footed I would hate to have them only work for a few weeks. Thank you!!!

Pattern con’t…

That’s a very sweet pattern. You could put a few buttonholes on the strap at 1-2 inch intervals and then sew buttons onto the front of the leggings. As the child grows you could then lengthen the strap. The leggings are certainly too cute to grow out of in a few months.
