I’d take it back and see if she can sew up the tears in the tulle. If that solves the problem (or mostly), then great. If not, I’d ask her how she intends to fix the problem. How SHE intends to fix it, not you. And make it clear that the tears were absolutely not that large before cleaning, so she needs to be responsible for the remedy (and the cost).

But you probably shouldn’t expect the work to be perfect– it’s a very old dress, after all, and tulle is notoriously fragile. I probably wouldn’t bother adding another layer, no one’s going to notice a few tears in the skirt, especially if it’s drapey.
