Pockets will be situated below the waist and made from fabric sections depicting a cats face. You state the dress will be imported in Girls sizes 2T/3T through 6/6X. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at time of shipment.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
