I live in a pretty small town (few tailors), but I'm about 45 minutes from a small city, so I might try the city and see what can happen.
Willynilly, thanks for the point on the exact replication thing. To be honest I don't think I'd want a super-exact replica just because it looks somewhat flimsy and it might snap while I'm swimming!!! I'd definitely want something more inspired by it as opposed to it exactly. I can't really find anything similar at all, sadly.
Thanks so much!!!
