A girlfriend of mine just cleaned out her closet and "donated" to me--I kid you not--TEN perfectly good cashmere sweater sets. The thing is, she''s a 10 regular and I''m an 8 petite. So the under shells generally fit (I''m a little bustier than the is) but the cardigans are a bit big, especially in the sleeves. I looked into getting the sleeves shortened but it was going to cost a fortune (and I wasn''t very confident that it would look right when it was done), so I''m hoping for a miracle. Can you shrink cashmere *just a little* and without ruining it?
