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.

This dress is just excellent. It’s the right length, fit, colour and style, and it’s incredibly versatile. I can wear it with warm layers underneath, or short sleeves and bare legs. Every time I’ve worn it, someone’s asked me where I got it :)
Beautifully made, excellent quality, great fit, good length (about mid calf on 5’6” me). A dress that I will get loads of wear out of. Thank you!
This pinafore sits part way down the calf and the cotton is thick and good quality.
Absolutely love this dress! It’s the perfect length and a lovely shape. The contrasting stitching is a nice touch 👍
I love the length. I’m not confident wearing short dresses, so this was the perfect compromise. Love.
