You might want to check Nancy Erickson's jacket pattern (Fashion Sewing Group). She has a basic jacket #1945, then a couple of others that have variations to the collar, etc. She loves Chanel, so models her jacket pattern after that high armscye. Fashion Sewing Group

I would love to see responses to this question. I'm always on the look-out for high patterns with high armscye.

Is your issue arm movement restrictions? If you're part of Thread Insiders, maybe this article could help: Threads: Cut-on Gusset

Try Burda. Also make sure that you are using a set in sleeve and not one that that has a slightly drop shoulder. Also, use a jacket with a two piece sleeve which will be easier to tailor.
As far as raising the underarm, you should be able to do that without a problem. The sleeve cap should be no more than 1 1/2" longer than the circumference of the armscye, less is the fabric is difficult to ease. The sleeve cap has to be the right height as well, though I don't remember the dimension of the cap height. You should be able to look that up.

Burda, Burda, Burda--but as Nancy says, look at the envelope to make sure the shoulders are not 'breit' or broad and dropped. It should say they are 'Normal.' If that is the case, the underarm will typically be high with Burda.

However, Nancy Erickson of 'Fashion Sewing Group' also makes a point of drafting a high armhole, explaining that the amount of daylight you see in the body's silhouette at critical points like the armscye or crotch helps to give the illusion of a sharper, more long-lined figure.

Or Patrones; I'm sewing a Patrones coat and just traced out a jacket. Both have very slim, two-pieced sleeves.
