Skirt Repair

Anyone have suggestions as to repairing a big tear in a skirt. It appears that the edge of my skirt (just above the rand) and a rock got in a fight while I was being worked in a hole on Saturday and my skirt lost.

On initial consideration, I was thinking of some sort of neoprene patch on the inside and mabe out and sealing it with aquaseal.

Iron Mend. I've seen that NRS sells it. Sweet stuff. You'll need to buy a tube of Aquaseal as well.

You can just take a needle and some thread and stich it back up. That's what I did when I lost a bunch of weight and needed to make my skirt smaller. I didn't use aquaseal, but you could...

You can use rubber cement, suggest thinning it out quite a bit

That's great idea. I have a Mt. Surf skirt that a friend is borrowing, but it is way to big for me to use anymore. Maybe I'll snag it back and do some sewing.
