I've been thinking about possibly having this done on my kelly...I don't find the kelly that comfortable to shop with because I tend to carry a bag on my forearm or elbow crook...and can't do it well with the kelly. Then I saw a gal with a shorter strap and thought VOILA!!! There may lie the solution! I'm short...and don't feel comfortable wearing it across the body as I'm also busty...but having it closer under my arm at times just might work! Anyone know the cost? I was holding it up in front of the mirror and quite honestly I think I could have 8" removed to make it where I would like it - is that weird??
