Agustina — Boxy Top Sewing Pattern (Free PDF)
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.

Customer Questions and Answers
Can I use bias tape on the neck, and if so what width do you recommend ? Thankyou Barb
Hi there, the pattern is not printing properly. All instructions have been followed, but it comes out like a mess. Seems like something is wrong with the file
Please email us with the specific issue and we would be happy to see how we can help out. We have over 10,000 downloads of this pattern with no issues.
I am retired and new to sewing. I've heard so much praise about this lovely top but I'm nervous about sizing. I am HB 101, FB 112, W 98, H 116. Will I need to perform a dreaded FBA and how? Regards, Sandra
Hello Sandra, Some customers find this design can be forgiving without an FBA, but if you usually find you need extra room, you can follow our FBA tutorial. Here is the link: blog.fabrics-store.com/2023/04/09/sewing-glossary-full-bust-adjustment-tutorial/
I reviewed my Agustina top before I realized I had to "post my work" to show a picture. It says only latin characters and numbers allowed. It will not post.
Please send the review and the photo too. our main email askfabrics-store.com so we can post it for you.

I might be missing something obvious but no matter how I lay it out, 1 yard is not enough to cut all of the pieces on the grain. Can anyone help me visualize how this works? Thanks!
Rather than folding your fabric in half with the selvedges meeting, open out your fabric flat then fold the selvedges into the middle of the fabric. This will give you two folds to place your pattern pieces for the front and back :)
This was my very first time sewing a shirt and following a pattern to completion. The instructions were easy to follow, and it made the process quite enjoyable. I love the result and will make this shirt again. Thank you!
I love this top, and will definitely make more of them. I found that it runs big, so I sized down one size, and may go down one more size next time. I used IL019 bleached with signature finish. I lengthened the back, and added some embroidery with linen thread I was gifted. I love the finished shirt. Thank you sooo much for this free pattern.
Yes, I do! I've made four of these. When finishing the neckline, however, if using a thicker fabric, I suggest making the seam allowance on the neckline a little smaller to make finishing easier.
Thank-you for this amazing easy FREE pattern!! I made 2 in one day, one in 8/10 which was a tad big so made another in the 4/6 and it is just perfect. So simple, the instructions were clear and the linked bias neck tutorial was so helpful!
Very easy make and looks great on me. I have four -- linen, crinkle double gauze, and a checked cotton.
My first make with the Agustina boxy top, made from IL019 bleached signature finish. I lengthened the back and added an embroidery patch on the front and a smaller one on back. I also omitted the cuff. I love, love, love wearing it. So comfortable and cool for hot summer days. I will be making more of these.
