#1 That skirt was not suppose to taper all the way to the floor like that.
If it was mine I would remove that clam shell molding, mark the skirt with a speed square about 1" to the left where it would end about 1" taller then the base and cut it off with an oscillating saw.
It was supposed to look something like this.
I also would have added base cap moulding to that skirt. What you have how is a dust catcher what shows the gaps.

For an instant upgrade also get rid of that 1970 style clam shell base board (also called ranch) moulding.
Over the years at least a dozen times the first thing a new home owner asked for was to get rid of all of it.
