Fixing a skirt band

Rubber band of my skirt snapped a few weeks ago. I'm hoping to repair it and use the old skirt for pool sessions instead of my new one. Does anyone have any ideas of what would be able to hold the rubber together? I was thinking some sort of silicon-based repair stuff similar to what you would fix rubber boots with. A little leakage would be fine with me for what I'll be using it for.

Just glue isn't enough. Stitch through the nylon faces.

Wouldn't hurt to smoosh some lycra or other stretchy nylon into the glue to further reinforce it.


Your neoprene is shot, but it should work OK for pool sessions.
If you do a bad job, it's not going to hold.
If you do a great job, it's going to tear next to your repair.
