The loosely fitted, unisex comfortable Baja Shirt is ideal for the beach or ski slopes depending on your choice of fabric. The design is simple, quick and easy to construct. Great for the novice or seasoned sewer.
I've been looking for a Baja hooded jacket pattern to use with my handwoven fabric. I made my first Baja over the weekend using cotton to test the pattern. Pattern was easy to follow, fits well altho possibly runs a bit large. I'm okay with that because I plan to wear it over other clothing.
I didn't make the hood as instructed (I wanted something that allowed fewer cuts for handwoven fabric) so I can't say if that part of the pattern is correct but the rest of it was. I'm looking forward to making more and trying the pattern with handwoven fabric. Unknown on 1st Nov 2016
I really liked the directions for this pattern. They are clear, with many pictures to show construction. The garment it self is a breeze to make! Even if you have never sewed before this is a great beginer project! I would appreciate more product suggestions though: You mention one companies interfacing to use, it would be nice to have 2 more companies as well. I am not going to order specific interfacing if I can trot off to my local fabric/sewing store and get something else so I can sew TODAY! Other wise a great pattern. Joe K on 25th May 2016

I bought this pattern to use with my handwoven fabric. I've just made one in muslin to practice and check sizing, which is great, and am excited to make the real deal. The instructions are very clear - easing in the sleeve caps went just as described. DeltaDawn on 24th Aug 2015
This is a fun shirt, and a great introduction to sewing with great results. You have the option of making it in a lightweight fabric for Summer or a Fleece version. No zippers to complicate this is a fun style that works well with basics or novelty prints. The pattern includes a l a r g e range of sizes and only five pattern pieces. Islander has another winner!
