First released in 1982, Patagonia® Baggies™ have been a summer staple for 40 years. Inspired by the classics, but with a modern shake, let DIAS be your next make. 🤙
- Classic style outdoor shorts with regular rise and casual straight fit
- Full length crotch gusset for range of motion and squat comfort
- Deep hand pockets that won't flip out with an inner iPhone pocket
- One or two back pockets with or without a secure snap flap
- Drawcord and elastic waistband constructed to allow for future replacement
DIAS are designed with a casual straight fit and standard rise. Compared to Patagonia® Baggies™, DIAS are slightly less baggy around the hips and thigh for a more trim shape. Referencing the photo gallery, I'm 6'0" tall, 170 lbs, 39" full-hip and wearing a size 40. I typically wear a men's medium. While a 5" inseam is standard, easily extend or short with included illustrated instructions for inseam and rise fit.
The sewing pattern covers a wide range of sizes corresponding to XS to XXL. Full hip/seat is the main sizing measurement, the maximum horizontal circumference around hips and butt.
|Body Measurement (inches)||32-34||35-37||38-40||41-43||44-46||47-49|
|Full Hip (Seat)||32-34||35-37||38-40||41-43||44-46||47-49|
Sewing Skill Level - Confident Beginner
DIAS have been designed for confident beginners. Apparel can be intimidating so this base pattern is low complexity and uses modest materials. An optional welt pocket on the back of the shorts is provided for intermediate sewers and a household steam iron is recommended. While a beginner can make this project, familiarity with sewing and basic construction techniques is expected. Serging simplifies construction however an overcast stitch, french seams, or flat felled seams are alternative methods to finish raw edges.
