    :eek: Seeing you in that must be quite the sight. Don't bother with tailors, etc. All the alterations might weaken it and it'' just rip. Donate it to the jolly green giant and get yourself one that fits.

    Ya really can't. You're going to have to find a tailor that can take some off the bottom. Most tailors have a problem because the lapel is so damm thick. I have had to do it everytime I but a kimono. It's no big deal but it can be expesive.

    I suggest taking it back/sending it back and getting the appropiate sized Gi.

    If the pants fit but the jacket is way too long, I think someone messed up your order. They probably gave you a jacket a few sizes too big.

    Send it back and get the right size.

    I wouldnt say no problem.... Most kimonos are to thick to be sewn in a normal sewing machine.

    THe skirt probably wouldnt be to bad but the collar wouldnt be able to be sewn.

    Take it to a shoe or leather shop..... only people who will have a machine that can go through it.
