Pattern alterations you made: I added 3" to the bottom and 1" to the hips then kept the same line down to the hemline.
Will you sew it again? Yes. I want to make this one for my oldest daughter, but keep it with the pattern hemline.
Would you recommend this pattern to others? Yes.
Conclusion: I think this is a good pattern for a nice sleeveless dress. There are other options for this pattern and I think any of the other options would make up nicely. I used a silky polyester weave, I think that this dress with the wide skirt would be good in a linen (suggested fabric) and the tropical would go better with the straight skirt. It would totally be up to the design style of the sewer. I used a polyester lining which kept the skirt in a light state, but that might would be different fora dress made out of linen. The V that's in the back was at strap level and very appropriate. The V in in the front was a good height and appropriate as well. There weren't any alterations to either of them as I had anticipated having to make an alteration to one of them. I actually like this pattern, but would not suggest it to a new beginner. It is perfect for a more advanced beginner or higher level sewist.
