I would have cut the 1/4” off the top of the legs, flushed the aprons up nice and tidy, then added a contrasting wood to the bottom of the leg to regain my height. At that point you could take off more on the bottom and add as big a piece as you like. You won’t really see this fix if your top has an overhang, so if I was going to fix it this way I would have just used the same material, ran it all the way through the full length of the apron and then cut the dovetail on the add on as well. Basically, make the apron 1/4” wider. You wouldn’t see the glue joint unless you were looking for it.
