    I have a wool sweater that is about a half size too small for me all over. I would prefer not to wear one so tight, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for how to stretch it out? Can a tailor or drycleaner do this? I have tried washing it and laying it flat, stretched out, but haven't had much luck.

    My Mom used to do this, but she would keep checking the sweater and pulling on it as it dried to make sure that it stayed blocked the way she wanted it.
