For those of us in the vintage sewing community, we all know who Gertie is. She’s an incredible pattern and fabric designer with a flair for vintage styles and just a genuinely lovely person. Starting from her well-known blog, she has a successful youtube channel, a popular Patreon with monthly pattern releases, has collaborated with Butterick and Simplicity and so much more. We’ve talked about her a fair bit on my blog and even reviewed some of her patterns but lately, I’ve been asked a lot for help regarding Gertie’s patterns. Gertie was originally designing for Butterick but after her collaboration contract expired, she moved over to Simplicity so some of her patterns are being renumbered. It can get a little confusing looking for certain patterns so I’ve decided to create, to the best of my ability, a guide for finding the same pattern with both the Butterick and Simplicity numbers.
Please Note: I am attempting to make this list as accurate as possible at the time of publication. Gertie has her own pattern company known as Charm patterns and I will not be including those patterns nor the ones on her Patreon. It’s worth noting that some patterns may no longer be available or sold out (especially Gertie’s Butterick patterns), and new patterns may have been added. I will attempt to update as regularly as I can.
Gertie does have two patterns (that I know off) which are only sold through Simplicity and they are S8882 and S8873.
There are some of Gertie’s Butterick patterns that are still able to be found in stores and online. I have also been told that some of these can be found as digital copies from the Simplicity/Butterick website. As time progresses, these patterns may be harder and harder to find so keep an eye out on places such as Ebay, Etsy and your Facebook marketplace.
The following patterns are an even more difficult hunt but I thought I would list them below because they do crop up online every now and again. Some of these are still pretty recent so don’t get discouraged.
There will definitely be a few Gertie pattern’s that I’ve missed but this should be enough to keep you going for a while. I would also recommend checking out Gertie’s own pattern company, Charm Patterns, as well as her Patreon as there are some stunning patterns available. It’s worth keeping in mind that although these patterns above may be difficult to find, they do turn up for sale every now and then. I own a few myself and some were a bit of a challenge to find but in the end, they were uncovered. If you know of a pattern I have missed, please let me know as I would love to keep this list updated. Happy sewing!
