German term or phrase: Raffungen
Die Hosen weisen jede Menge Naht-Effekte auf, Taschenlösungen, Steppereien und Zipper, Raffungen und Schnickschnack jeder Art.

Something like gatherings, although this doesn't sound good English to me.

gathers
Explanation:
Shoulder Yoke: If your body size changes just below the shoulders, consider a fashion style that includes a shoulder yoke. This allows a beautifully controlled fit in the shoulders, with gathers, pleats, or flare below. This allows fabric to fill out a smaller figure or flow over a fuller figure. Gathers must be tiny and evenly spaced. Pleats can be crisp and very sophisticated. And flare doesn't have to look like a tent.
