Vogue - 8616
This is my version of V8616. I did make various adjustments to the pattern before cutting out. The sleeves were very narrow so I had to increase the width. I also added some extra ease to the back and hip area.
In addition to the changes above I also cut mine about 2" longer giving me a tunic/top which I think looks nice with the belt.
One problem was the neck area - although it was only a light-weight fabric, once folded over the weight of the two layers pulled the neck edge down. I dealt with this problem by taking the seams on the neck edge in and this corrected the problem.
The Pattern states very easy - and I think that is more or less true.
