Good for you! As Salmonac mentioned, you need to be sure to pick up a few more stitches around the curves. This will allow the band to 'turn the curve' without flipping under or flipping up.

Normally, you'd pick up 3 stitches for every 4 stitches on the sweater's edge. Around curves, I pick up 4 for 4.

I think you're right in your approach...just do it, and evaluate the outcome. If you don't like it, rip it down and do it over. I don't hesitate to do buttonbands over if they don't look just right.
