Teens Era Yellow dress with green trim

From the seller:

Wonderful pre-WWI day dress (Downton Abbey!), there are are beautiful features, green trim and wonderful appliques. Closes at back. Lace is tearing at shoulders, due to age. Pigeon Breast style in front. Waist is 25.5", bust on mannequin is 34" but can probably go up to 36". Bid price reflects damage of garment.

From Me:

It's not a pigeon front - it's just badly displayed. Also, WWI started in 1914 - this dress is probably around 1917/1918 - towards the end of the war.
