For a fast project, The Sewing Workshop e-shrug makes a cute little jacket. I sewed one in a weekend not long ago, and I really like the pattern. Here is what it looked like after I printed it out & taped the pieces together. After I was finished, I came back and marked the stitching lines with a felt tip pen so I can remember for next time.
Here is the order of steps:
1. Print & tape the pattern to the cutting table.
2. Trace the pattern on the smallest size for girths, largest size for height.
3. Tissue fit.
4. No surprise, I needed more on the back in the shoulder area (just like the adjustment I needed on Silhouette #175 - see below). This is combines a forward shoulder adjustment with adjustments for narrow neck and additional height.

The final result - a fun little jacket:
This will be cute in a drapey knit, too. I must make another version! (or 2)
