Simplicity 1945

This set of five separates from the Khaliah Ali Collection can be mixed and matched in multiple ways. It includes a draped cardigan with bracelet-length dolman sleeves and pointed-hem edges at the center front. One of the two fitted tops has short raglan sleeves and an oversized cowl collar. The second top is a mock wrap with forward shoulder seams, three-quarter sleeves, an asymmetrical hemline, and has a series of pleats radiating across the front. For bottoms, the choices are a wide-leg pant or a maxi-length straight skirt with a side slit, both with elastic waists. The top shown is a rayon/cotton/spandex jersey knit, and the skirt is an embroidered lightweight woven wool.

(Sized Misses’/Women’s 10-28W for busts 32.5-50 in. and hips 34.5-52 in.) (also woven for skirt/pant)

Style Tip: Perfect for travel, these ensemble pieces can be made in coordinating fabrics that match your wardrobe.
