Hi! I am also about 5’5″ and had the same dilemma about shortening the dress. I decided to leave the dress as is, rather than pay $300 to have it shortened by the 3″ because the alterationist would hem the dress from the top of the skirt, not the bottom (i.e., you wouldn’t lose any of the skirt, and it would in essence be the same as having the dress come 3″ shorter). Since I would likely have to have the dress shortened a bit either way to exactly match my height with shoes, I figured it wasn’t worth the extra $300. Hope that helps!
