Hi. What is the part of a person's top (shirt, jacket, sweater, etc.) that hangs off a shoulder called?

Would that be called a "yoke"? It's the part of the top that covers the shoulder.

Would you say, "the girl made the yoke of her jacket drop and hang off of her shoulder"?

Please help. Thank you.

@Sturgis,
The sleeve of a person's top doesn't cover the person's shoulder.
