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.

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: (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
