Meet Leigh - our beautiful Midi Pini Dress, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.
Thick cotton twill in a rich Redcurrant Red. 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 - these fabrics are limited but we have an expanded collection and further sizing in the pipeline for the future.

Lovely colour and fabric for the Leigh midi pini dress. Really love how it looks on.
I love this midi dress - the length is really nice and the fabric is such good quality. Colour is lovely and obviously love the pockets! I’m enjoying wearing it over stripy T-shirts in this nice weather but it can be made cozy for winter with a jumper underneath. Thanks again L&Y x
This dress just makes me thoroughly happy. Knowing how (& where!) it was made, and that it was made to last, is part of the happiness. The colour is gorgeous, too. It just makes me feel carefree and strong. I am cheating by dressing it up for the office.
such a great quality and i absolutely love the fit, wish i could get the neon cargo trousers! because i absolutely love this collection ❤️
These are so beautifully made and I love that they're made in Britain. My only niggle is the impracticality of the length coupled with the hem circumference. This basically means that when walking my stride is cut very short. Maybe I just have a big stride, but I do find it slows me down and puts me off wearing them out and about.
