Flame Princess - Need help finding a pattern

Hello! I really need help picking a base pattern out to for this lady's dress. I'm usually good at picking patterns out but.. This one has me kind of stumped.

http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...alacecolor.jpg

Don't even worry about matching the "overskirt" piece or the neckline.. I'm really just focusing on the shape of the skirt! But a matching neckline would be a plus of course.

* A note: I'd like the skirt part to be more like
this: http://ladygeekgirl.files.wordpress....0731.jpg?w=764 (less folds in the under skirt)
than this: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6...rwg8o1_500.jpg (more folds in the under skirt)

* I'd really like it to be a brand that I can get from Jo-anns. So.. I'm limited to Simplicity, McCalls, Vogue, New Look, Butterick, Kwik Sew (I forget a few). I only say this because they often have sales that makes these patterns 1 to 4 dollars instead of 11 or 20 dollars!

I thought Vogue 2788 would be perfect! ..And it almost is. Except it has alot less "hips" than I'd like :/ Unless I can modify that somehow, but I don't know how to.


EDIT: Simplicity 1728 is also almost perfect! ... but the skirt looks waaay to large D: ..unless I can slim it down T.T
