I was a little miffed, as you can understand. I decided that somehow I was going to salvage these garments and then wear them a lot. I shall also wear anything else deemed "too good to wear"before it suffers the same fate!!
I decided a piece of lace would do the trick. First I applied a knit interfacing to the area with holes and then darned over the top of the holes to keep things together:

|Back of darn|
Although the holes were only one side of the garment, I thought the top would look more as if this is what it is supposed to look like, with a symmetrical approach:
I chose a lace with a nice large pattern and some flowers either side:
I cut out a shape that included the central flower and a few of the small flowers and applied:
So now I have a designer twinset!! Good enough to proudly wear - and I am going to, before something else happens to it :)
