Help!! Cross Stitch and Counted Thread Stitchers!

Hi to all my readers who do cross stitch and other forms of counted thread work. I am in need of some advice. Below is the start of the outlining on my Elizabethan Sweetbag. The left hand side looks OK, the right side looks like crap. Any hints on how I can even out the stitching?? I realise part of it is from keeping the stitches running the same way, but what should I do? Perhaps a second line of stitching to thicken it up??
