I can't create the VM, so I didn't have the XML file.
But I could use the same way to create VM2. The only differences is the disk images.
The vm2.img comes from this command : qemu-img create -f qcow vm2.img 4G
The vm3.img comes from the command :  qemu-img create -b vm1.img -f qcow vm3.img

virsh # create vm3.xml
error: Failed to create domain from vm3.xml
error: internal error unable to start guest: qemu: could not open disk image /var/lib/libvirt/images/vm3.img

virsh # create vm2.xmlDomain vm2 created from vm2.xml

The XML file as below:
