My mum was out walking on the moors earlier this week, and trying to help a worried and lost looking Staffie pup, she managed to get hung up on a barb-wire fence and has ripped a 90º tear in her walking jacket, with each tear about 50mm long ...
It's a Harry Hall (horse) riding jacket, and it's a very finely woven polyester too, so I can't see it liking being sewn (at least not in the cack-handed way I sew things). I had wondered about using a 'gore-tex' kinda patch, but I don't know if that'd work.
Any thoughts on how to make this repair would be gratefully received.
(The dog was fine, she managed to reunite her with her owner a bit later in the walk).
