Liesl is a long seamless tank. The double decreases up the sides and the free-hanging pouch pockets give an asymmetrical drape to the hemline. English Tailoring makes for a neat-fitting neckline; the seam connecting back to fronts sits just below the shoulder on the back. She’s a fun layering piece over jeans or summer linen.
