I have a nice late 80's Eagle delta from Diana Aurigemma. The leading edge pockets towards the wingtips are getting a bit threadbare. Whats the best way to reinforce that?

quicker fix is to have reinforcing pockets put on over the end where it is wearing through.
the best fix would be to open up a couple of feet of the sleeve and then reinforce from the inside out to retain the design on the outside...this would take a skilled hand and machine.
