The pants are fixed! I bought some fabric and my "mom" added it to the top for me. It wasn't the fix I would've done (the crotch is below my knees!) but it worked for today and I didn't have to do it so I was fine with it. They can be modified later.
Here is the final result, along with the corta to go with it. I wore it today for Navruz and definitely didn't feel overdressed. Our "dad" told Drew he should hold my hand when we were out so no one would steal me because I looked so pretty. :-)
