I don't know if you can do it by next monday, but here's the way I'd do it:

Get a pink satin jacket.  If you need it that fast, this'll be tough.  I suppose you could try to make one, but it'd be easier to buy.  Checking the local thrift and vintage stores may yield something you could use.  If not pink, then an unprinted white jacket you may be able to dye.  Otherwise, you can order them for $34 here:

Add a little black piping to the raglan sleeves and embroider Pink Ladies on the back, and then a name on the front.  If you need, find a nice fifties script font online to use as your basis.

If you can't find a pink satin jacket, and also if you're into authenticity from the FILM, I believe I remember their jackets were perhaps a canvas rather than satin, and more of a straight hem than an elastic one.  I'd have to watch it again.

You might be able to find a pink satin baseball jacket at your local team uniform shop. You know those sporting goods stores that do embroidery and make T-ball uniforms and the like...

i have one that we (my mother and i- well, i mainly watched Embarrassed ) made a few years ago using one of those sewing patterns from a quick and easy pattern collection- buttericks, simplicity, etc. all have them...
we altered it some to make it more what i wanted (fabric, cut, etc.)
and we used a photo transfer sheet to get the 'pink ladies' on the back and name on the front. you could also stencil it or silkscreen of course, but the photo transfer was very quick and we only had
after school the day before halloween...

if you don't care if it is that satiny pink, you could also just take a pink sweatshirt and cut it down the front and add a zipper and iron on the words?

good luck with yr project
