Shrinking all over doesn't necessarily mean shrinking in proportion - you could get a lot of shrinkage in the length and only a little in the girth, or vice versa.
I'd look into having them altered rather than trying to shrink them in the dryer. And I wouldn't put linen in the dryer even if the label said it was okay.
