First of all, know that the pleats of the saree should be straight and all the pleats should be equal.

Many times, even after making the pleat’s right, the line of the crease is visible and it spoils the look of the saree, so press it before wearing the saree.
Now start draping the saree and keep in mind that the first fold of the saree is equal and does not rise or fall from anywhere. If this happens, then after wearing the whole sari, that part is seen separately while getting up or walking or if the fold is small then the petticoat starts showing out from inside, which is Looks very ugly.
Now start making the pleats of the saree. For this, make the first two pleats and tuck them inside the petticoat. After this, make pleats from the side of the fall below instead of above. These pleats should be in an equal gap. After this, you press these pleats under the sole of the foot. After this, open both the pleats mentioned above and start making pleats again. You will find that your pleats are becoming straight.
Now release the pleats buried under the soles of the feet. After this, turning the pleats you have prepared towards the left side, tuck them into the petticoat. During this, also keep in mind the height of the first fold of the saree. After making the pleats of the sari, secure it by putting a safety pin in it.
Many times after taking the first fold, even when the pleats of the saree are ready, some part of the saree remains on the right side. Women usually tuck that part in a petticoat like this. But this can spoil the look of your saree, so you have to adjust this remaining part with the first plate of the saree in such a way that the pleats are visible from the front.
