Did you apply xyz_1.2.diff.gz? You have to apply debian patch, so debian
subdirecory is created for building with dpkg-buildpackage. You should have
extracted package with 'dpkg-source -x xyz_1.2.dsc' and patch would have been
applied automaticaly. Then you apply your modifications and document that in the
changelog. And then build the package.

Why would you apply any patch _after_ you create packages? And patch for 1.0
would not affect 1.2 version (it is intended for 1.0).
I recommend you first read New Maintainers Guide, then if have further problems,
explain more precisely what are you trying to do.
