College color blocked Jacket

  This is color blocked jacket I made for my school fashion show. The theme of the fashion show is 60's mod, which was the style I was trying to achieve with this jacket. I made this jacket from some mystery fabric at Walmart on sale for two dollars. The jacket was made from a size 10 sloper my teacher created. The only changes I did to the sloper was lengthen the jacket by six inches and add button loop.

Problem with the Jacket
The only problem I had was all the puckering in the sleeve area. Easing the sleeves was a pain in the butt.I had to ease the whole sleeve in to the armhole. I did everything I could think of to reduce the puckering. It was just way to much ease in the sleeve. Other than that, the jacket came together well.
