Meet Leigh - our beautiful Midi Pini Dress, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.
Thick cotton twill in Black with Brown topstitch detail. A longer length than our Freyja midi pinis by a few inches, these will come on average to the middle of the calf!
She has our signature tie straps, a chest pocket with tuck detail and large pockets at the hips.
Layer her over your fave tees and jumpers, dress her up with smart shoes or down with some chunky docs
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Following on from the success of working with our partners and teams in India, we wanted to bring skilled textile jobs back to Yorkshire with the same ethical production ethos. Yorkshire is our home and was once famous for its thriving textile industry - Barnsley itself used to be home to thousands of garment workers and was a huge source of identity and community for the area.
As the factories closed down, it left many skilled workers unemployed and no longer able to use their skills and years of experience and knowledge. We believe creating and sustaining well paid and rewarding jobs is one of the best ways to benefit a community and that’s what we try to do both in India and the UK.
This second Made in Britain collection consists of 9 pieces and includes reworked pini dresses, midi pinis and cargo trousers, featuring signature Lucy & Yak design statements and new colourways lime green and strawberry pink. We’ve used practical hardwearing fabrics (thick 100% cotton twill) with large pockets, classic shapes with utility details and modern twists on traditional colour pallets. The collection is shot at an old local colliery, paying homage to the old industries of Barnsley and the communities that live and work here.
This is a limited run of only 90 pieces in each style - we have an expanded collection and further sizing in the pipeline for the future.

Body Measurements (how to find your size):
Since my daughter was born in April, I have been officially living in my Leigh MIDI Pini. Those pockets are the best for storing most of the baby essentials on the go :) My only wish is for it to make a come back as I’m not too sure how much more washing one pair of Yaks can withstand. Staying hopeful x
Size availability is inconsistent, even when brand uses plus size models... feels a little disingenuous. If you aren't going to consistently offer the full range of sizes, it'd be nice to at least filter by size.
Thanks for reaching out. Sorry to hear these weren't quite right for you. The idea of our extended sizing is that by the end of 2021, all our clothing ranges will be in our new sizing. I'll pass all this feedback on to our design team as this isn't our intention with our launches. More info here: https://lucyandyak.com/pages/new-sizes-update - In regards to the size filter, you can always pop the size you want in the search bar. So for example a size 16L - you could search '16L' in the search bar.
Congratulations, you are a very creative brand, aware of the environment and empathetic with the diversity of clothing sizes
I love your style, the clothes fit me perfectly.
I posted my pictures on my Instagram wearing the clothes that I bought.
I tagged you and I used the hashtag #yakmirrorselfiemonday in my pictures.
I´m your biggest from Mexico City.

This dress is well made in good quality cotton. I love the big pockets which are so practical. I have already washed it and there was no shrinkage or seam twisting. It is perfect for me to wear with a tee shirt or a jumper once it starts to get colder.
Love this dress and how I can dress it up or down !
