Charm Patterns dressmaking patterns by Gertie specialise in vintage glamour. Gertie is a designer who infuses her passion for sewing into glamorous creations that can be customised for anyone.

Gertie’s popularity soared when she created her first blog, “Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing” to chronicle her attempt to sew all 14 iconic patterns in the 1952 book, Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing. Readership skyrocketed as she shared tutorials and posts about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. 

Gertie collaborated with Butterick on the “Patterns by Gertie” line of sewing patterns. She has designed fabrics for Joann Fabrics, Spotlight Stores and Michael Miller. A sought-after instructor, Gertie has traveled the world to lead sewing workshops highlighting her techniques.

She is the author of five books including Gertie Sews Jiffy Dresses, Gertie’s Ultimate Dress Book and Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing. She’s been featured by “Good Morning America” and “Good Housekeeping.”
