Made a pair of pleated trousers for my wife. I was hoping to get some advice. It seems that the pleats are bending or bowing towards the middle. More so with the right pleat.

Did I take in seat too much or is the pleat depth just not deep enough? How would I remedy this?
Right pleat opens up more than the left:
