I really like this top...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Strapless-GOTHIC-Long-Wrap-Buckle-Bustier-Waistcoat-Top-BLACK-RED-Size-22-/120824087632?pt=UK_Women_s_Tops_Shirts&hash=item1c21ad4450

Except for the ruffle along the top.  I'm doomchested, so frilly ruffles on top will look a bit odd on me.  Also, while the top is offered in plus sizes, the model is straight-shaped, slim and moderately-chested, so 'm not sure how well the larger sizes will fit (what is it with plus-size clothes being sold on slim models?!)

I'm trying to work out a pattern for the top to make my own- anyone able to offer any pointers?

I think your best bet would be starting with a princess seamed strapless dress pattern. Make a muslin of it with two center front pieces so you can get it to wrap. Fit the muslin, cut the bottom in that short-long shape, and add a center front seam on one center front panel so you can get those straps on the side sewn in. If it doesn't already have a separate bodice and skirt, cut the pattern under the bust (and add seam allowances) so you can do the two colors.
