The openwork fabric has fewer than 10 stitches per centimeter in each direction. The sleeveless cardigan features a collar, a full front opening with button closure, and a scalloped bottom. The collar and lapel have a satin fabric backing.

The pants of style 89231 are constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric. The pants have an elasticized waistband and hemmed leg openings.

In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.
