Spray skirt repair

I've got a clean slice on my skirt where it fits over my cockpit rim. The slice isn't all the way through the neoprene and it runs perpendicular to the cockpit rim, so the stress of being on the boat doesn't pull it apart.
I'm thinking of patching it with aqua seal and some seam tape. Kinda worried about the flexibility of the patch once dry. Anyone have any methods or materials that have worked?

Sew it back together (with good tight stitches) with dental floss, then aquaseal the whole thing top and bottom.

If you have access to a heavy enough sewing machine, I'd put a patch several inches larger than the hole on the inside of the skirt with neoprene and heavy duty polyester thread using a nice fat zigzag stitch. Then I'd aqua seal the outside or use neoprene seam tape on it. Lots of work, but it would outlast the sprayskirt itself.
