Baseboard trim dilemma

I am working a project in a room that used to be a garage. The studs were not flush with the inside edge of the sill, so when drywall was hung, the sill edge is proud of it. Looking for trimming tricks for the baseboards. Only thing I can think of is adding some sort of 1X construct flush with the edge of the sill so the baseboard will be flush to the wall. Adding more drywall isn't an option.

Post a photo. Hard to give advice sight unseen. We don't know how much its sticking out. Makes a difference, you know.

What you might do is provide a wide baseboard that has a thickness of 3/4" to 1" (similar to the old fashion 8" high used many years ago). Then on top if that you can add a 1/2 or 1/4 round. Will that cover the void assuming the wallboard tends to even out as you go that high?
