You are off to a good start. I will post the same information here, that I posted over at the MD forum, as others may find the information useful as well.

Just as a suggestion: use a full circle for the skirt portion (with another circle cut out for the waistline), to create the deep folding effect the easiest way, or you can try to actually imitate the pleating of the front (as is most commonly done in saris).
There are several (very early) discussions about saris, that may help in your construction efforts. ... dLearn/460 ... Learn/5390

And Google has some good information here, including some patterns for the bodice section: ... i+tutorial
