I've found it helps to have the pelvis area really defined in that kind of flat V shape, so that there is sufficient contour for the legs to nest in.  The legs in the second picture look like they could be a little under stuffed, too.  Having the stuffing right is tricky, but it's useful to be fiddly because it provides the tension so the legs sit and stay where you want them.  Make sure your button is centered in your leg before you thread it.  And, if it's sewn pretty neatly/straight, you can use the stitches on the side of the body as a marker for your needle to thread the legs through, and get them fairly even.  I don't go right through the stitches, but just offset, either in front of or behind, depending on what looks best for that doll.  That way if the button on the leg is centered, and the stitching is straight, the legs should end up positioned pretty evenly.  Are you using freezer paper for the pattern?  That, hands down, is probably the most helpful thing!  If the pieces are sewn as closely to the pattern as possible, they're more likely line up well.
