    I did something stupid and now have a very very small hole in a somewhat obvious place in a jersey knit dress.
    It’s quite small, just one stitch worth but it is there 🙁
    What do I do? Put interfacing on the back? Something else? Try to come up with a patch to put there?
    Thanks

    I do a lot of darning by using a small piece of soft interfacing ironed to the back, over the hole, and then I hand sew it with a matching thread making sure not to pull it too tight. A good press afterwards flattens things down.

    Often it will just look like a slub in the fabric.

    Thank you! I will try that. Glad to hear it might look ok. I was so frustrated at my stupidity!!
