Dear Ms. Montonera:

In your letter dated April 28, 2005, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s three-piece pajama set. The submitted items will be returned, as requested.

The three garments will be purchased, imported, sold and merchandised as a set. None of the pieces will be available for purchase separately. The pajama top and the pajama shorts are constructed from 100 percent cotton knit fabric; the pajama pants are constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The knit sleeveless pajama top has a U-shaped neckline, shoulder straps, and a scalloped finish at the bottom. The knit pajama shorts have an elasticized waistband with a drawstring, and hemmed leg openings. The woven pajama pants have an elasticized waistband and hemmed leg openings.

Based on the appearance of the submitted garments, as well as the submitted labeling and marketing information, they are considered sleepwear.
