I would like to make a pleated ruche for my daughters homecoming dress. I have the foundation made. Where do I begin? Center front on the grain line? Or drape on the bais? I checked the you tube and searched on line - any suggestions.

Try playing with the fabric a bit and seeing what it wants to do. Here are some photos from when I did my daughters wedding dress a few years ago. It may give you some ideas.

If it is different ruching you are thinking about, here is another example from another daughters dress. Picasa Photos #2

My TNT pattern for a ruched midriff is Vogue 8182. So far I've used it for three different dresses (including DD's wedding dress) out of three different fabrics. It's a stay piece with the fashion fabric cut on the bias and stretched. You do have to play with your fabric a bit - you also may want to tack the fabric to the stay either in symetrical tacks for pleating or random ones for light folds. I didn't have to tack silk dupioni because it was stiff enough to hold folds.
