    Default trousers

    We call creases for the lines in the front and back of trousers that we use iron or steam presser to iron.

    How about the bottom ends of the trousers that we fold just in case we need to alter the length for the best fitting.
    __________________________________________________

    What do we call :

    1. the straight and hard collar for a shirt, especial men's suit for important functions.

    2. the groove at the armpit of a clothing that can been altered in case the top is too tight.

    3. the extra piece of cloth fixed on the interior of the ladies' top, skirt or dress to avoid it's being see-through.

    4. the extra piece of top that we put on under the ladies' skirt or dress to avoid it's being see-through as the material is thin.
    5. the extra piece of underwear (top) that we put on under the ladies' top to avoid it's being see-through as the material is thin.

    6. the collar of a tuxedo which folds halfly in and out (unlike the ordinary shirts that the collars are having the collars totally folded out.

    7. The holes on the tops for the buttons to go through

    7. The lines making on the waistline of a top which make the top smaller on the waistline so as to show the body slimmer.

    Cuff(s)
    2. the groove at the armpit of a clothing that can been altered in case the top is too tight.

    not sure what you mean
    armpit seam?

    3. the extra piece of cloth fixed on the interior of the ladies' top, skirt or dress to avoid it's being see-through.

    Slip is a separate piece of clothing you can wear under a skirt; this is old-fashioned. Or a skirt can have lining.
    4. the extra piece of top that we put on under the ladies' skirt or dress to avoid it's being see-through as the material is thin.

    Not clear what you mean.
    5. the extra piece of underwear (top) that we put on under the ladies' top to avoid it's being see-through as the material is thin.

    Again, not sure what you mean. Possibly undershirt or camisole.

    6. the collar of a tuxedo which folds halfly in and out (unlike the ordinary shirts that the collars are having the collars totally folded out.
    Wing collar.
    7. The holes on the tops for the buttons to go through

    buttonholes

    7. The lines making on the waistline of a top which make the top smaller on the waistline so as to show the body slimmer.

    Princess seam(s)
