# Push faces together

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

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.

What you are looking for is Scale.
