The dress is constructed from 100% polyester lace with a 100% polyester woven satin lining. The dress extends well below the knee and features spaghetti straps, a V-neckline and a square back.

The applicable subheading for style F05-21-087, the dress, will be 6104.43.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s dresses, knitted: of synthetic fibers: other: women’s. The rate of duty will be 16% ad valorem.
