Manipulating multiple layers without merging

I use Photoshop CC for digital art. As an example, lets say I have a layer with a gesture drawing, a layer with a basic mid tone silhouette, and a layer with a slightly more detailed sketch. I realise the leg of the figure is in slightly the wrong place but am still very much in the design phase. It would be great to be able to make a selection, say with the Lasso tool, select all three layers, and then Free Transform that selection across all three layers without having to merge them into one layer.

I have not tried, but one of these 2 ideas might work?:
1. Put layers in a group and work at the group level?
2. Select all 3 layers and then use the tool?
