Shrinkage....

I just got 5 capes back from the tannery and I want to know a good way to streach them out. The tan looks good on them but a couple of the capes shrank a lot and I want to get the measurments back.

I remember a very lengthy discussion and all your anxieties when you were looking for imfo. on a good tannery to send your capes off to. Next time try the one I recommended to you, you wont be dissapointed.
