Crown molding to arched window


I'm installing crown molding around a living room/dining room. One wall has an arched window over a door (to a bedroom). Continuing the line of the molding, the base molding under the crown will overlap the top of the arch. I thought it might be good to trim the entire window with a basic arched molding that can act as the base at the top, then terminate the horizonal base somehow into that arch. Will that work, or is there an obvious better way?

Please see attached pic.

Thanks!

That helps alot, thank you! It looks like they just cut away the horizontal base to fit the arch molding, then caulked that joint.

Dang, I was hoping youd trim out the arch.
