Converting full length bib longs to 3/4s??

    I bought some cheap bib longs from Aldi...but I didnt get the sizing quite right so they are perhaps a little too long. However, the are relatively tight all the way down to my calves and fit well up to that point. So I was thinking I could just cut them down to 3/4 lengths and sew the seams up myself. Would this work?? Considering my experience of sewing anything other than a button is absolute zero....

    the stitching strikes me as a bit special to resist all the stretching and stress of pulling them on and off

    something elastic perhaps

    and isn;t there some sort of gripper at the bottom?

    Why not just use longer socks or try and find some longer overshoes?

    As Tynan said - it will work but only if you use elastic thread.
