dc.description.abstract <p>Developed through a technology-rich design process, Afterglow builds on research that explores the application of Universal Design (UD) principles for apparel design, specifically the principle of, equitable use, which ensures that design is useful and marketable to people with diverse abilities. Knowing that set-in sleeves can be problematic for wearers with limited upper body range of motion, the researchers designed a contemporary trench coat with a two-part separating sleeve, and shoulder seam that is fixed with snaps. The lower part of the sleeve is attached to the jacket armhole, the upper portion is connected to the yoke, and they are joined at the neckline. Tabs hold the sleeve together, and oversized buttonholes give more space for the buttons to pass through.</p>
