hi - Ravi, and many thanks for two kimonos received yesterday as I was out last Friday when the courier tried to deliver. They are magnificent,- nice colours, etc- and the red/black one which I note is XL and duly ´mine´ seems to fit well. The Gold/Light blue one - Margarets - looks tremendous on her and she is thrilled by it - but it is way way short. It barely covers her knees and she was hoping for one almost to the ground - about another 8´ longer. I have worked around this now having to be a ´summer´ one only - or what else do you suggest? - as she naturally would like to wear it all year. One other way round this would be for me to give hers to the bride in the UK and get another for Maragret and another similar to ´mine´ for the groom...but on this I am not yet confirmed. Any good ideas would be welcome.
