  • Description

    A longer, hip-length tank version of our essential Petra Crop. A simple, slightly A-line tank that completes so many outfits you didn't even know you wanted to wear. Perfect for a weekday at work or a weekend away. Layer under jackets and sweaters, or wear bare and get some sun on your shoulders. I love this paired with a matching gauze Bel Skirt, or worn with a simple sleek trouser like the Andy in Midweight Linen. It has a high, boat neck with a slim-fit in the chest with bust darts and stands away from the body at the waist. The generous hem provides structure and balance. The carefully cut armholes hit right at the most flattering part of the shoulder - showing everything you want to show and nothing you don't. It hits right at the hip for a flattering, lengthening look that provides coverage if you want it and tucks easily if you want a different silhouette.

    Cut from a beautifully textured crinkly linen gauze. It has inherent stretch so it hugs the body beautifully while still retaining drape. Organic and variegated in color and feel.

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

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Linen Gauze

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: A gorgeous lightweight linen gauze that has a wonderful texture. The crinkled finish gives the fabric an inherent stretch. It's airy and floaty without being too sheer, hugging the body in slimmer styles and draping beautifully in others. It's lighter than our midweight linen but still strong and durable. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. This yarn-dyed gauze possesses rustic charm and variation, giving it an organic personality.

    Care: Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry hot. Store folded or flat in order to avoid stretching. If stretching occurs, machine wash and dry to return to its original shape. The crinkled finish is intentional, so do not press. To remove fold creases or wrinkles, lightly steam or toss in the dryer with a damp towel. Avoid excessive stress on seams.

    *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.

  • Sizing & Fit

Great change from the cropped tops

The Petra Tank in linen gauze is an easy top to wear in many different ways and a different silhouette from other ES tops. I have it in the orange color (amber?) and it is a nice tone, slightly muted. I tend to size down in ES linen tops in general if I can get away with the length (long torso, large breasts) but this top I went down two sizes from my measurements. It was very loose in the neck, arm holes and chest which was not flattering on me in the size the corresponding to the size chart/garment measurements. The correct size fits perfect and I will get this top in another color this spring. I’m thinking of trying it in the mid weight linen as well, but it looks like it has more swing in that cloth. I love wearing the Petra Tank in linen gauze with Flos. In the gauze sized down it is slimmer through the body and hip and makes a nice elongating effect. And I don’t worry about flashing my belly, or more!

Love Linen

The color of this tank is wonderful. Nice cut to this piece.

I am very slowly adding new pieces of Elizabeth Suzann to my wardrobe. You cannot find better quality and workwomanship anywhere else.

Petra Tank

Love it--love the fabric and the fit. The bust darts are very nice. It's a great summer staple. Maybe could have gone down a size, but this size is most likely the best fit.

my favorite

I bought this in pepper and I think it is my favorite item of clothing. It can look fancy, but also casual. It's not too heavy and quite comfortable for my humid, hot hometown climate. I received this about 2 weeks ago and have worn it about 7 times. It is fabulous.

Lovely Top - Modest, Textured, and Light

I really love the silhouette of this tank. It's lovely to dress up and down and the texture of the linen gauze is lovely. The length of the tank is also quite nice especially if you have a longer torso and prefer more midriff coverage.

The armholes provide great coverage with no bra straps or bands showing so it's a great more modest cut.
