Meet Leigh - our beautiful Midi Pini Dress, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.
Thick cotton twill in a dark Olive with a Cream top stitch. 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) from a local Yorkshire family run business who have been developing high quality fabrics since 1901. With large pockets, classic shapes and utility details with 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.

The Leigh pini dress is lovely...great colour and really comfy. Very happy with it.
Love the length, love the fabric. Washes brilliantly. Pockets coming out of my ears. Wear with a tee when it's hot or a jumper when it's cooler. Can't wait until the Redcurrant version is back in stock!
O my days, I was umm-ing and ah-ing whether or not to buy the leigh midi and then I saw a cute little baker girl on instagram wearing THIS gorgeous dress and I was sold. I am only 5 foot 1" and I wasn't sure if it would be too long but it really isn't. On me I like to tie the shoulder ties so the dress falls 4 inches above my ankles. I'm slim but curvier than most in certain areas and this is sooo modest but elegant. I can't be any happier it's wonderful. Because I have found myself living in it YES I am buying the red one too this week haha. I would buy this in more colours like Petrol, lilac and even a pattern. Keep up the good work my fellow Yorkshire businesspeople! xxxxxx
This midi pini is the perfect length and size! The quality is incredible and I think it’s now my new favourite wardrobe staple!
Birthday present for my best gal, she's over the moon with them, really comfy and look great with colourful shirts underneath, three thumbs up
