Rough and ready fashion garment (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

makeshift

'rough and ready' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'fashion garment' is the wordplay.
'fashion' becomes 'make' (I've seen this in another clue).
'garment' becomes 'shift' (shift is a kind of garment).
'make'+'shift'='MAKESHIFT'

(Other definitions for makeshift that I've seen before include "temporary expedient" , "crude arrangement" , "temporary measure" , "Serving as a temporary and less adequate substitute for something" , "Interim, temporary" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
