Yes. I've reconstructed four apportioning scale/measurement systems so far. I used a German one for Fashions of the Gilded Age (1877-1882), American ones for The Voice of Fashion (1900-1906), The Edwardian Modiste (1905-1902). Then another American system for the new books, Bustle Era Fashions and Directoire Revival Fashions.
