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.

i started out with one and decided that, on me, it looked better without the sleeve cuffs. i make a bias tape out of bright, colorful cotton material for the collar and sleeves to give it a little pop! so easy to make and alter or decorate according to your needs and tastes. every time there is a doggie bag sale on one yarders, i'm there, looking for yet another color that i don't have! :)
I made this ox 18/20 per my measurements and it was huge. I remade in the 14/16 and it fits my shoulders perfectly! I'm going to try doing a higher front and lower back on my next version! I'm enjoying learning new skills!
I made this pattern based on my usual size, but added a couple of inches to the bottom. The sleeves were fine until I added the "cuff" and then they were very tight. I had made it from a scrap of challis as a wearable toile. I plan to try it again in mid-weight linen, adding the length, enlarging the cuff, adding bust darts and hacking a v-neckline. I think it has great potential for embroidery, pintucks, color blocking etc. I am long-waisted, and the extra length is perfect. Good pattern, just needs some adjusting for my "old-lady" tummy! My husband loved it and asked if it was one of the designer patterns I had been sewing. He was surprised to learn it was a freebie!
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!
Loved making this shirt! I used a linen/ cotton mixed fabric. I am really happy with the result. The sewing was quick and easy.
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!
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.
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!
Thank you for creating these wonderful patterns that are easy to assemble and sew. And the tutorials that show us how to put them together step by step are such a bonus. Today I finished my Agustina top and tomorrow I am going to tackle the Morocco Pants. I am a forever fan of yours - thanks!!
I'm a complete beginner to sewing but the clear instructions on the blog and easy to assemble and understand pattern made sewing this a breeze! So happy with how this turned out and incredibly impressed with the quality of this free pattern!
Made this T-shirt 3 times in the last week! It is a quick sew and a perfect wardrobe staple! The instructions on the blog a very clear. Have also shared the pattern and your website with my sewing group. Thank you for the great work!!
Made this and wore to work one warm day. Everyone is so impressed. Now I am taking orders! Thank you.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Pattern went together easily. Very comfortable top. I will make again.
Pattern downloaded easily, looking forward to making this top!
Have followed all directions and cannot download pattern. Neither can many others. Please try to fix this problem.
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 email@example.com and I will send you pictures of the steps. Have a great day.
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!
