About Lilly Charleston

Lilly Charleston came about from a love of my sweet granddaughters, a love of sewing and natural fabrics and a yearning to keep them in sweet, simple and comfortable clothes. God has blessed me with three precious granddaughters: Lilly, Charleston and Sailor- all born within three wonderful years!! I have been sewing for over 40 years, so……

As I create clothes for little ones, my heart’s desire is not too make trendy outfits, but to go back to a simple design that captures their tender and innocent age. My hope for each little one is that she will grow up in a gentle and kind world and enjoy each day that God has given her. There is just no hurry to grow up. Catch those butterflies, chase those lightening bugs, jump in muddy puddles, blow those big bubbles and eat those yummy popsicles!

Each LillyCharleston piece of clothing is handmade with love and 100% cotton right here in the USA. Each outfit has a label with one of my favorite Bible verses on it: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Along with that label, there is another label tucked away somewhere inside the dress with the main idea of the verse. This particular verse guides me each day as I draw closer to God. I pray it does the same for you and your little girl. He is the Author of my story and the Author of yours, as well.

As I was making each outfit, I started wondering who would end up wearing it. So, I thought it would be neat to pray for that child, even if I didn’t know her by name. I wanted a connection with her and what better connection than praying to her Creator on her behalf? I pray that she will be blessed with a healthy, joyful life and that she will come to know the One, our Heavenly Father, who knows her and loves her more than anyone else.
