These labels were provided by the Vogue pattern company to home sewers. If you find one of these labels in a garment, it is an indication that it was sewn using a Vogue pattern. Often, these garments were very well made, as some of the patterns were quite difficult to sew and were attempted only by skilled seamstresses.
The earliest Vogue Couturier Design patterns are from the 1930s and did not feature a designer name. For most of that decade the numbers of the couturier patterns were in sequence. Vogue Paris Original patterns featured French designers, the Vogue Couturier Design patterns featured designers from other countries like Pertegaz of Spain; Fabiani, Simonetta and Federico Forquet of Italy; or Michael of England. Vogue Americana patterns and labels date to 1967.
