Levantine Arabic: darts (kind of stitches)

    I'm wondering about tailoring terminology in Beirut. I would like to get a few shirts made, but I'm not sure how to ask for two things:

    Darts: stitches holding together small folds of fabric in the lower back in order to keep the shirt from billowing out over one's trousers (could this be as simple as: دَرْزَة?)

    Probably I can get these points across without the technical terms, but it doesn't hurt to know them. Cheers! :)
