That wouldn't so much be your gauge as the length isn't the gauge you go by, the width is. Also on the Rav page it says

"Many people have issues with the rise on this pattern being too long. On worksheet 1, line 4, there is a certain amount of rise subtracted from your desired rise for your calculations. If you use your desired rise for the calculations your rise will be way too long. This information is missed by many. If you want your rise to be accurate you must decrease this amount out of your rise for your calculations!"

Did you do that part?

And I like MrsStripe's idea, elastic waistbands are my favorite ones!
