I've got a BR sweater that was given to me that's a little big, but still fits fine as is. I'm thinking about soaking it in hot water to shrink it, but I'm not sure if it's been pre-shrunk or if it will shrink uniformly. Arm length is fine, as is the hem length and it drapes nicely so it's not too obvious it's big. Only really noticeable part about it is the neck is rather large. Am I more likely to screw something up by trying to shrink it or would it work? The sweater is 100% cotton and seems to be pretty heavy, when I run it through the dryer it's usually one of the items that's still damp.
