You may have gotten tighter near the top. Take your gauge somewhere in the middle if its close- also check it maybe you added stitches by trying to make the end loop go way.
If you have a needle guage (I think its about $2 at the fabric store) there is a little ruler for measuring gauge on it that makes it easier. Also, you might need a different needle size. I had to go down to size 5 for the longies (3 for the ribbing) to get the guage- I think veryone else was right on with the 7s. At 5s, though, the longies fit perfectly, so I'm glad I did check the gauge and get the other needles. It saves frustration to make sure your guage matches, then you know the pants will fit after all that work LOL
Being right is not always fair, but being fair is always right
