History of Sewing - 1940s Introduction of Numbered Notches

In this flyer from 1941, the McCall pattern company explains that they have started numbering the notches on their pattern pieces to simplify assembly of garments.

Not only do you match up notches by numbers, but you match them in the order in which they should be joined! Note that this is patented and exclusive to McCall.
