Mending with a patch

This was a damage on a motorcycle racing suit. It is very hard to replace the damaged area with the same fabric because the other area is made of a very heavy leather. Also, the location of the damage made it hard to use my sewing machine. 
So, I decided to use a patch. Since the damaged section was a stretchy area, I had to use a fabric with about the same stretch, and I had to use stitches that can accommodate the stretch. 
Although the patch does not make it look like it is brand new, it cans till cover up the damage.
