Ergon Standardausgabe; ca. 1950s; Pattern Drawing System

Published by Karl Loeffler Verlag of Vienna and called a "pattern drawing help for home or commercial use". It uses a grading system like Lutterloh's The Golden Rule: patterns are drawn in miniature format on cardboard, and a cardboard measure is used to draw the actual pattern, based on one's measurements.

The set included: magazine with instructions on how to use the system, general sewing instructions and beautiful color drawings for 165 patterns, plus a description for each. Heavy paper cards with the pattern templates for the patterns in the magazine, plus graded measuring "tapes" needed to draw the patterns in actual size, printed on blue cardboard.
