I have found not a single pattern for this jacket that I want so bad! I looked up shirring and found only those summer dresses that stretch in the top but it didnt say anything about the sleeves and it said to spray water when done? I have no clue what they're talking about.
I've looked up ruching and havent found much
Heres a link to the ruched satin jacket

Basically what that is is the sleeves are gathered to make them ruched.

look for example at a pattern like Vogue 8190. You can see that the entirety of the front of the dress is gathered up to make the ruching.

Now imagine that on a much smaller scale, and that is the sleeve of your jacket.

I can't tell if the sleeve is ruched on the front and back or only the front. I made vogue 1061 which has a sleeve that is only ruched on one side. That seam was curved to make it long enough to gather up. It is a very strange pattern piece and requires a 2 piece sleeve. It was an easy pattern to make though.

you can use small elastic to get that effect. But you will have to cut the pattern longer and them put the elastic in.
You can also get some of that shrinking thread. Your local sewing machine dealer should carry it. If not email me i can spare some.
Most things like that is done with elastic sewen on the inside seam.
hope this helps.

I've made a couple garments using elastic thread in the bobbin. It works really well.
