How about knit the stockinette a couple inches longer, increasing the stitches, then doing the ribbing, which won't be quite as long, but still longer than conventional ribbing, and with more stitches, it won't be as snug over the hips which is why it blouses up above that.

Or you could knit the lower part of the stockinette on larger needles and also go up a size on the ribbing than you used originally.
