So I have a problem and a question, or maybe a few:
I have this wonderful grey wool suiting that I started to make into New Look 6065 about 5 years ago. I of course, never finished it because I found out that New Look sizing was a bit large for me at the time I cut out the size 6! Being the naive youngster that I was (I didn't know I was using wool) I put the dress at the bottom of a closet. Recently I pull it out and to my horror find a bunch of moth holes in it. I have done some searching on the dress and found that the moth holes are mainly at the bottom of the skirt so I can cut that part off. However, that would make the dress pretty much a go-go dress on me. Too short for my taste.
Here are some pics:

What would you Craftsters recommend I do to resolve this problem? Should I just buy some black or another grey suiting and attach a band at the bottom to make the dress kind of retro-y two-tone? Or do you have any other ideas? I don't know how to darn and to be honest with you, I think the holes are too big anyways.
I really do want to save this dress, I found I did a pretty good job with it. It is still too big on me, but nothing taking in the back zipper seam won't fix.
Any help or input would be much appreciated. Thanks!
