Agustina — Boxy Top Pattern

Agustina is a simple and slightly cropped boxy top with round neckline and cuff sleeves. And sometimes simple is best. An ideal beginner sewing project, this top sews up in just a couple of hours and requires very little fabric. We chose to make this top in our gauzy open weave linen that has a unique slightly sheer look making it ideal for summer.

Such a great basic pattern, it's guaranteed to become one of your favorites. Plus, it lends itself to so many simple hacks to make it your very own. You can lengthen the hem and turn it into a dress, or transform cuffs into long sleeves, or add a belt.

What you get with your pattern:

- Free PDF download for our registered customers.
- Print-at-home format on Letter/A4 paper.

Mariann profile image Great, Quick Shirt
Reviewer: Mariann

I cut two of these out at once. One in IL019 Bleached Signature finish and one in Meadow Ilo19 softened. It has been a while since I have done much sewing and I find myself making silly errors, totally the result of rushing. I made a few modifications on the Bleached one--small side slits at the hemline and a deeper neckline. I love them both. This pattern requires about 2/3 yd in size 12, I made two napkins from the remaining yard of Meadow. I love this store!

Love this pattern.
Reviewer: Melinda

This was a lot of fun to make. I am pleased with the outcome and really like wearing this top. I learned a new technique for finishing the collar which I plan to use going forward. Thank you very much for the pattern and instructions!

This pattern is a wardrobe builder
Reviewer: Jean

Fabrics-store has so many great PDF patterns. This isn't my first one but if you're new to PDF patterns from any source, try Agustina as one of your first downloads. The pattern comes together quickly, about an afternoon which includes pasting the PDF together, laying out and cutting, then sewing. If you're going to hack a pattern for the first time, this is a great one to start with. Agustina boxy top can easily become a tunic or a dress. The cuffs and bias adds the possibility of adding contrast. Not only that, the style is flattering for most shapes and sizes.

I love this top, the pattern, and the fit. I am new to sewing and outside of getting use to bias tape it was very easy.

My favorite top
Reviewer: Jenny

This is my favorite boxy top. I already made 3 and want to make a million more. The design is simple and very comfortable. The pattern is well made and the tutorial is very clear, beginner friendly. I learned a new method for sewing a neck bias. Thank you for this wonderful free pattern!

Great first project
Reviewer: Sandra

This was the first top I've made in about 30 years. It was incredibly easy, and looks great. I've made 2 so far, and will probably make more. The first one I made to pattern, but added some trim at the bottom because I was afraid it would be too short. It ended up being a bit too long. The second one, I added 3/4" to the pattern and it was perfect.

My favorite shirt.
Reviewer: Kate

What a wonderful pattern! I turned the hem under 2.75" instead to make a boxy crop to wear with high waisted pants and shorts. I can't wait to make another one.

Perfect pattern for the beginner
Reviewer: gillian

I haven't sewn much for myself but I love linen and I found this website so I decided to try. This pattern, along with the tutorials, made it super easy! I usually wear an 8-10 and this fit perfectly. I did add an inch to the bottom just cause I don't like to show my tummy. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the pattern. This comes as I was wondering how to make yet another summer top for an upcoming trip. Great shape and very hackable. Thanks again for all the freebies!

Great beginner project
Reviewer: Tabitha

I've sewn only about 6 garments before this top but the instructions from the tutorial made it very easy to make. I added a band at the bottom to make it a little longer and some waist darts because it was a little *too* boxy on my short torso. Great pattern and instructions. I didn't have trouble with the PDF--double click the download then choose your size. THANK YOU!

Good afternoon! The pattern pieces are included as an attachment to the main PDF file. In order to open the attachment - in the Adobe menu click View - Show/Hide-Navigation Panes - Attachments. And Adobe pops open a side panel with the attached file. Double click on the file and Adobe will open the attached pattern pieces. You can send me an email to ask@fabrics-store.com and I will send you pictures of the steps. Have a great day.

Thank you for the nice pattern. really happy with this!

Another great pattern that can be made very easily and in a short time...

Posted by Meral

Simple style, made with Fabric-Stores yarn dyed linen (3.5 oz). Quick and easy to sew.

Posted by Nancy

Great pattern! And the first pattern i've ever printed out and cut to use! I didn't add the sleeves/cuffs and altered the shirt to be more of a crop top but it looks great! Fabric is Hemp Canvas from Hemp-Traders

Posted by Alex

I made this as a sleep top in the IL020 bleached, but will be making many more in a medium weight for every day wear!! I love this boxy, minimalist pattern!!! (I even made a version in a printed cotton I already had. It looks awesome! Definitely a great pattern for bold, funky prints too.)

Posted by Patti

I'm so pleased with how this turned out! Great beginner project to build confidence and learn a couple basic techniques. I will wear it regularly!

Posted by Allison

The Agustina top in IL022 yarn dye 828 plaid. Clothes needs pockets. The top has a baby hem which is easy in this light weight.

Posted by Jean

Absolute beginner and I did it! Love this pattern. Used non-linen to practice but making it with FS linen today. Thank you for this pattern!!!

Posted by Rosalind

This pattern is so simple, but so perfect! On the neckline instead of bias tape i used a different technics, because i didn't have enough fabric, but i made an another one later, and with bias tape its so much easier and looks professional on the inside too. Thanks for all these sophisticated clothing patterns!

Posted by Zsófia

Very easy beginner project, took me about an hour and a half to sew. Lovely drape! I am making another one but making the neckline into scoop neck and also adding a little bit of length.

Hi, I am so excited to make a boxy top, but I am unabile to "CLICK HERE" to see the sewing instruction. Can you please to help me?!!!

Posted by Jiree

Lengthened the hem by 2 inches to cover belly.

Posted by Eveline

This is my second one, made with IL019 in Silver Blue. The color here looks washed out. It is brighter in real life.

Posted by Sandra

I made this out of a Doggie Bag of IL028 in Dune/Natural. I didn't have enough fabric for the cuffs, and wanted to lengthen it a bit, so used IL019 in Bleached for the trim.
