I'm trying to create pleats on a garment I'm trying to model. Currently it looks like this:

enter image description here

I'm not clear how to explain this...I want to "push" the selected faces together, the way we create pleats. If you consider each of those faces to be cloth, I want to fold them inwards. Each pair of face forms a V as you can see. I want these faces to come closer, with the edge connecting them acting as a fold edge.

How do I go about this?
