I'm making view 2, in a red wool blend, and with 3/4 length sleeves rather than short (my wardrobe is lacking in winter dresses, and we've got another few months of cold weather still to come).
I've been working on this dress for some weeks now, on and off - it's taken two muslins and one false start, and I was very nearly on the verge of throwing in the towel. The problem was that even after making a Full Bust Adjustment (something of a revelation, I can tell you!) it still just didn't fit right. Turns out it's actually impossible to tailor a dolman-sleeved bodice over a full bust, so there was nothing for it but to make set-in sleeves.
I borrowed the sleeve from another pattern, using the bodice pieces to trace the shape of the armhole. It took a couple of attempts to get the shoulder seam in the right place, but I think I've cracked it now. I've only done one side so far, but it's made all the difference in the world to the fit - I hope it works out once I've completed the other side!
