In the instructions, the tucks are pointing DOWN toward the hemline.
In your photo, the tucks appear to be pointing UP toward the waistline.
That is, to make tucks as shown in the illustration, bring the markings on the fabric together and pin the fabric at the marks. Then take the fabric fold that is created and fold it down toward the hemline. Repeat for each tuck. It is probably easiest to start with the bottom tuck, the one closest to the hem, then move up to the next truck, etc.
