On the right side of the fabric mark the distance between the pintucks.
I made 2cm distance between two pintucks. Note that the first and the last marks are marked at the 3rd cm from the end of the fabric.
You will need at least 2 mark points per one pintuck. Depending on fabric's length, you might need to mark few more marks per one pintuck so you could easily define the pintuck's direction.
Pintucks should be marked following the straight grain of the fabric.
I made those marks very noticeable so you could see them on the picture, but you won't the marks to be that visible on your fabric. So, be careful when marking the fabric.
