- Employ a contrasting color or a checked pattern for those basic monochromatic clothes
- If you have a printed item, use iron on letters onto a small patch and then iron on that patch over the place
- If the place where the mesh needs to be made is somewhere unusual at the front, then make an iron-on patch to look like a smart pocket
