Blocked sweater and now it is bigger!!!!!

so, the sweater I designed for myself that I had mentioned in my other post... well, I finished it, I washed it and lied it out flat to dry but ! the wool I used (donegal chunky tweed) was really heavy, and now it is quite a bit longer than it was before, even the sleeves! Is there any way to undo this? I.e. soak it again and then lay it out and kind of pull it to size or I don't know what. (I am asking before experimenting because I am afraid it might stretch some more....)
Again, any help is hugely appreciated!
