(Right). Once the upper part is draped around the upper part of the body, a length of sari should be falling in front, between the closing (or the last tucking) and the drape of the upper part at its tightest. Take the upper border of this part and pleat it towards the inside, starting from that which is closest to the closing. Once the whole length is pleated, tuck it over the abdomen, pleats towards the left.
Here again, most women tuck the pleats over the right side of the abdomen, so that they fall in the middle, but others tuck them in the middle, their fall being over the left side.
The way the pleats are tucked differ from woman to woman. If the pleats are to fall really straight, the first and the last ones should be larger, and a small pleat should be made on the right hip before the main pleats, towards the right.
