Emma sent me a very sweet message asking me to let you all know about her fantastic boutique clothing business:



Hello my name is Emma Goodhill-Carter and I am the designer & maker behind MummyLovesLily which offers an adorable range of children’s handmade boutique clothing & accessories for sizes 0-8 years.

I am mum to 5 year old Lily and she is the inspiration for everything I do!  My love of sewing started with the birth of my daughter.  Lily was born 3 months prematurely and during our time in the Neonatal Unit she was gifted a beautiful quilt that was kindly donated by the Linus Project.  I was fascinated by the quilt and curious to know how it was made, so I booked myself onto a sewing course, bought a sewing machine, attended the course and my love of sewing began!

With my new found skills I soon started designing and sewing clothes for Lily.  Being so small for her age it was always difficult to find clothes to fit her.  I have always had a creative side and designing garments, cutting them and then sewing them together came very naturally to me.  We had so many compliments regarding her clothing that friends and family suggested I should start my own children’s clothing business.  The idea for MummyLovesLily was born.

All of my garments are lovingly “Handmade by me, for you!” at my home in Alton, Hampshire using beautiful designer fabrics and are just perfect for every day, that special day or as a gorgeous gift.  They are designed to be practical yet stylish and can be worn across all seasons.  Every design I produce is named after either my daughters friends or people that have a very special meaning to me.

MummyLovesLily is focusing on Art Gallery Fabrics whose premium cotton fabrics are known for their exceptional quality & the iconic Harris Tweed which is recognised as one of the world’s finest fabrics.  I offer a range of Dresses, Rompers, Skirts, Tops and Capes that can be handmade in your choice of fabrics and arrive beautifully gift wrapped inside my signature white box.

I can be found twice at month at the fabulous Old Spitalfields Market in London or online at  You can also follow me on

MummyLovesLily will be exhibiting at the Baby Expo Show on Sunday 24th November 2013 at the Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.  Come and find me on stand 58 in Innovation Alley, it will be lovely to meet you!

Many thanks!
