After much deliberation, I did go ahead and have the top of my swim suit hemmed. I picked it up yesterday... and I was pretty nervous about it because I had pinned the hem myself so I didn't have to try it on in front of the alterations ppl, haha. Anyway, it came out great!! It looks really cute on and it's not too long now. The hem cost me $15, so the grand total for the suit came to $65 after that, not too bad!
