The pattern is Simplicity 2584 and I really like it. I combined various parts of the views to get what I wanted - drawstring dress style like View A, sleeveless with the scalloped slit facing like View D.
The neckline edges are even at the top. The dress is just not on the dressform straight here.
The scalloped neckline piece is sewn on top of the dress and then a facing is applied and turned toward the inside. The pattern calls for an exposed zipper on the back, but I found I didn't need it to get the dress on and off, so I omitted it.
I had a hard time getting the armhole binding to work out as described in the instructions, so I just did my own thing and am happy with how it worked out. My drawstring is mostly elastic with the fabric ends stitched to it - more comfortable and easier to adjust the gathering.
