Want to buy my first lolita item. HELP?

So I was wondering if you veteran lolita's can help me? I want to buy my first lolita item off of Bodyline. While I would first look for a seamstress to commission i'm short on time and money. I've used the search function and couldn't exactly find what i was looking for.

I was wanting this JSK : http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/showProduct.asp?id=4543&pageNumber=1&pageStop=stop_1&noSubType=N

Now as a new buyer i wanted to know if any plus size loli's here have this? I'm pretty plus size.
My waist in CM is 135 1/2 cm and my bust is 128 cm (i'm also not very tall).  I was wanting to know if the JSK would be too small for me or if I should just give it up and try to find a seamstress for that price?  Can anyone give me advice or what I should do? 

EDIT:  Would it just be easier to get a skirt? Seeing as how with the help of all you lovely ladies the JSK will not fit me. Do I have a better chance with just a skirt?  And if not I'll just try to get something commissioned =x

EDIT 2: Also, as I'm not all that tall I usually pull my skirts/pants up above my waist so that it sits just under my bust/over my naval (yes nerdy i know ><). And when I do pull it up it's almost 108 cm. Does that count for anything?

EDIT 3: I think I might just try to sew my own skirt. I'm a beginner seamstress. and the only I was ever able to get right was a skirt i made in my highschool beginners class xD. OK. New question. Does anyone have any advice for someone who's about to sew their own lolita skirt for the first time? Nothing fancy for me, just a regular skirt.

EDIT 4: ok. looks like i made a mistake with my measuring. Looks like my waist is 108 instead of the 135 1/2 ^^;.
