What does the term sweep mean when referring to clothing?

Sweep: You will see this measurement most commonly found on coats or jackets. The sweep is the circumference of the bottom hem of a skirt, dress, coat, or jacket. For a jacket or coat, measure the sweep across the bottom hem from open edge to open edge. For a skirt or dress, measure the sweep by laying the garment flat with seams matched, measure end to end, then double.
