I have to say that you’re awesome for having the confidence for being willing to experiment.  Sure, you can do all the math and be as accurate as possible, but usually that just gets you 90% of the way there.  Good for you.  Yes, you can try increasing the hip curve and then try taking in the side seams below the crotch.  I definitely wouldn’t redraw the draft, just lay another sheet on top and copy the parts that are good and change the hip curve.  Don’t take in the side seams until after you try on your new muslin, so you can work with it.  I know it’s a lot of work and can be frustrating, but if you stick with it, you’ll get your pair of great fitting pants.  When you do, I want to see a picture. Good luck! 🙂
