    The seller told me this was a "Sally Stitch" dress form, although there's no label to confirm that - does anyone know? I also don't know how old it is and it would be great to give her an age if anyone can help!

    It's not a very easy to adjust dress form; having a whole bunch of metal interlocking tabs inside tightened with wingnuts - but it is complete and nothing's broken so I considered it a good deal for $40 at a summer yard sale.

    Since I can't be sure her name is Sally I've renamed her to Amelia Isabelle, and clothed her with a leather dress to preserve her dignity. She'll eventually make a nice addition standing next to one of the Singer treadle sewing machines I have yet to restore.

      It has all appearances of a Sally Stitch but without label that was found on them makes it hard to prove . But it is a wonderful dress makers mannequin . I would use it to display vintage clothes :-)
