Crossword Genius

Unacceptable band sketch (7)


I believe the answer is:


'sketch' is the definition.
(I know that sketch can be written as outline)

'unacceptable band' is the wordplay.
'unacceptable' becomes 'out' (I've seen this before).
'band' becomes 'line' (band can mean a strip or line).

(Other definitions for outline that I've seen before include "Trace - form" , "Plan with little detail" , "(Make a) sketch" , "Preliminary draft" , "General plan; summary" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
