RE: The tariff classification of a child’s costume from China.

Dear Ms. Navidad:

In your letter dated May 11, 2005 you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, style 5679, Las Vegas Audition Deluxe Costume Set consists of a blouse, pants and cuff composed of knit 100% polyester fabric. The pullover style blouse is hip length with a ruffle at the bottom, short sleeves and a V neckline. The pants have a tunneled elastic waistband with a ruffle at the bottom. The cuff is worn on the wrist. The blouse has flimsy seams at the arms and bottom hem with multiple styling features and a finished neck. The pants have flimsy seams and styling at the ankles. The costume considered is well made.

The Las Vegas Audition Deluxe, style 5679, consists of two or more garments. Note 13 of Section XI, of the HTSUSA, requires that textile garments of different headings be separately classified, thus preventing classification of costumes consisting of two or more garments as sets. If a set cannot exist by application of Note 13, the articles that may be packaged with the garments must also be classified separately.
