Have lost some weight and am in thin summer gear now.So now the tube/tunnel on my snapdragon is to big. It is already size small and is neoprene.Is there a way I can sew smaller and reseal the seam? What would I use to reseal?

It wasn't what I had hoped for. That was going to be my summer deck.

I guess you could try rolling the top edge down to double up the neoprene. That might help. You could also try a velcro strap over it.

Save the skirt as is for use in winter dress, but buy some neoprene fabric, size as desired, and have an outdoor-gear seamstress make you a "top band" that goes over the top half of the skirt. You could have her put in a Velcro flap to allow adjustment of tightness.

They will have sewing & repair information fo neoprene "fabics", including appropriate threads, needles, glues, and seaming and stitching techniques.
You can cut vertical slices down the |

front of the tunnel, and remove a long, thin wedge of neoprene. Then you can use standard neoprene cement to seam the cut closed. Sewing is not necessary if you can do a careful job.
