  • Description

    The Petra Crop is one of our earliest styles. A simple, classic crop top meant for summertime with an elegant boat neckline. Imagine weekend getaways to the coast or the mountains. Wear this paired with the matching Bel Skirt for sandy afternoon walks or over the classic Andy Trouser to dinner and drinks. Simple, easy silhouette. Featuring a high boat neck, yet slim fit in the chest with bust darts. This style stands away from the body at the waist, which is edged with a generous hem providing foundational structure and balance. Carefully cut armholes hit right at the shoulder bone—revealing everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Its cropped length hits at the natural waist and pairs perfectly with high-rise pants and skirts, and layers well over slip dresses.

    Cut from our classic, sturdy midweight linen. A year-round fabric with weight and substance, but also lightness and movement. Natural imperfections and variation in weave give this material a rich, earthy feel.

    Love this style? It comes in many different fabrics, various lengths, and two different necklines! Check out the full Petra and Polly series here.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

Tailor-made

Love this piece but *shocker* its extremely cropped. Couldnt't wear it with even my most high-waisted pants. I emailed customer service and they suggested I release the hem to its maximum length (+2"). I brought it to a tailor and was satisfied with the result. It was great advice, and I am stoked to get to keep/love/wear this soft, comfortable, beautiful shirt. A+ for versatility. Size up for a roomier fit, mine is a perfect fit and I have minimal curves.

Current Gen is too short for me

Petras are great. Totall wardrobe essentials. I have two from previous generations but the new ones are simply to skimpy for my long torso. So I will enjoy the ones I have and continue to search for old ones in the secondhand market.

Thanks for sharing this feedback, Moria! We're happy to hear that your old generation Petra Crops fit so well! Some customers have luck hemming the tank to achieve a longer length, so that's another option, if you're interested! If you have any other questions or feedback, our Customer Relations Team is always available to help! Just send us an email at support@elizabethsuzann.com. :)

Perfect

I feel like I can do anything in this top- it fits in with the rest of my wardrobe perfectly. I appreciate the darts so the tank doesn’t just hang like a big tent (I have a larger bust), and the crop length is just right. It makes me feel very chic and cool!

Stunning quality as always, but this shirt is CROPPED!

I got this in flax linen to match my clyde pants (which are high waisted so I was not concerned about the cropped Petra length) I saw and understood all measurements given on the website and I am quite petite - and even so - this shirt showed my belly. I love the cut and style so much I decided to have the hem taken out so I got an extra 1"+ of length which made this perfect for me and wearable to work. I would still strongly recommend this style, just keep in mind that for the Petra, it is really a crop top.

In between sizes

I originally got a small and it fit well except it cut into my armpits. I’m a small in all tops and a 34 bust. I had to sell the small after one wear once I realized it was uncomfortable. I sized up to a medium and it was huge. I had to get it altered. Now I like it but it was an expensive journey to get here.

Too cropped for me

As with all ES pieces, this top is beautifully made and fits really nice. I am pretty tall and I think it was just a little too cropped for my long torso. Even with a high waisted pant I would need to worry about my stomach showing at work.

Thanks for sharing this feedback, Audrey! Since this style is a bit too cropped for you to wear at work, the Petra Tank could be a great alternative! It is designed to hit at the hip, which would give you a little more coverage. :) If you'd like to set up an exchange, just let our Customer Relations Team know by emailing support@elizabethsuzann.com, and we'll take care of it!

Versatile, comfortable, maybe too cropped

I have an older Petra in navy linen that I wear all the time. The newer ivory linen Petra I have has a center back seam that the older one doesn't have. It's also a smidge (maybe 1/2 inch) shorter than the older style. I'm not sure if it's a change in the pattern or just variation between fabric colors, but I do have to be careful with which bottoms I pair it with so as not to show off too much belly. It's otherwise a great piece: the armholes are comfortably loose without showing off my bra, and it is the perfect complement to flowy bottoms.

Wonderful piece

I absolutely love the petra crop in midweight linen. The crop is just the right length for my frame (i'm 5'2"), the fabric is substantial and drapes perfectly, and the cut is so cute. I have the white in a S and the black in an XS. My only complaint is that I'm kind of between the two sizes so the XS is a little tight under the arms, but I prefer that fit otherwise. Love this piece!
